for you brave souls that would be willing to try to learn this art and do not have a teacher nearby:

www.cmaod.com - look for the dvds for Bagua(Pakua)

those are not the only dvds or vcds you will find online, but the easiest to get(at least for me)

Also, for those living in the Memphis, Tenessee area, or down in Texas, I could put you into contact with 2 friends of mine, both teachers of their respective schools.

For people who wish to go to China, there is also, another friend more than willing to teach foreigners, though details of that have to be discussed with him.

Dr Xie Peiqi wanted to document the entire Yin Fu method. All 8 fists. Hehas passed on but his group(s) still sell his DVDs and they are the best I have ever seen for learning BaGua at home. They recommend you start with the Lion fist as it develops yang chi thefastest, then you select the fist best suited to your body type, which is the way it was originally done.
I've retired from MA and have several of their VHS tapes. If you are willing to pay postage I'll send them to you free of charge.
(Just as a favor to someone who trains under Sonny Emperado)

I have done many styles in my time in the martial arts , so i have come across these moves before, or simuliar ones. so wen i did it i just didn't find anything interesting about it. i May have contiuned if i didn't already know many of the moves.

I thought it was either that, or that you met a teacher who didn't know how to teach Baguazhang- I've seen some pretty pitiful videos from people calling themselves masters of the art.
but in ur case, with so many martial arts, I guess you can get bored pretty easily

Yes i have seen many people that say that they can teach it but know little about it. After a while i started to take what was useful to me and didn't pay attention to the others.
