Bajiquan (Chinese: 八極拳; pinyin: Bājíquán) is a Chinese martial art that features explosive, short-range power and is famous for its elbow and shoulder strikes.[1] It originated in the Hebei Province in Northern China,[2][self-published source] but spread to Taiwan and other places. Its full name is kai men baji quan (開門八極拳), which means “open-gate eight-extremities fist”.

八極拳與軍事系統聯繫緊密,由於拳法直接狠辣,殺傷力強,屢成為近代史上保護政要人物的「大內武術」。溥儀、蔣中正、毛澤東、蔣經國、李登輝等人的近身侍衛皆習八極。[1] 八極拳現在盛行於中國北方及台灣。後傳入日本、韓國及其他國家,如美國、加拿大、英國、法國、比利時、丹麥、義大利等地。
