    Unfortunatly, Jesse Cole's Portland Bagua seems to have closed. Does any one know who is the best (if any) teacher of Bagua in the Portland Metro area?

    The only CMA oriented stuff I know of in Portland is Straight Blast Gym. Sorry.

    Thank you. There are actually tons of CMA classes in and around Portland, just no Bagua except in some general internal arts classes. Maybe it's just me, but I'd rather learn one thing well than many things half-assed.

    I feel you. Or what I learn has to compliment a hole in what I already know. I'm in PDX frequently, was ther last weekend actually, and I've been trying to cut out some time to check out Quest and Northwest Fighting Arts. They are the closest to what I do now. I've been to SBG and found it to be too, well, JKDie.

    Sorry about the tangent. Good luck, I love Portland.

    FYI, Quest and Oregon Martial Arts Club in Tigard have been churning out some pro fighters. I don't know the reputation of Nothwest Fighting Arts.123
