Does anyone know of any schools or teachers of Nei Jia arts in WNY? I am interested in Ba Gua Zhang and Xingyi Quan for the most part, as they seem to be pretty well known, though I'd love to learn Liuhe Bafa. At any rate, if anyone knows of any such schools, please point me in the direction. Thanks.

Doesn't ring a bell to me, but you might check with Bob Gott at Red Dragon in the McKinley Mall.

Sorry but the closest I can get to you in NY for Xingyi/Bagua is really not all that close. And I know absolutely nothing about this school.

As for Liu He Ba Fa.... Real Liu He Ba Fa..... that is just plain rare everywhere. There are schools in California but I do not know of any on the East coast of the US.

The Wu family (Taiji) is in Toronto that is a bit closer

Not Neijia but you also have Systema (main headquarters) in Toronto as well.

Well, thanks. I am too far away from Orchard Park to attend that school regularly. I figured that Liuhe Bafa was pretty much a no go anywhere. There are Taiji places, but for the most part they seem to be "Tai Chi in the Park", old people yoga. It is unfortunate that there aren't any Nei Jia schools close. I figured here'd be the best place to ask though. Again, thanks anyway. As for Toronto, I have thought about moving there, so thanks for the info there as well. I'll look into the Wu Taiji info.

Well, seeing as it's been almost a year, I was hoping maybe someone had some information or perhaps some leads? Anything at all would be most appreciated!

So.., I know it is a futile effort at this point, but... Bump.

-Have you thought about looking for something different? Might not hurt to ask around at your local martial art supplies store. Some teachers simply do not advertise openly.
