Carsten Stausberg is the founder of Yizong Bagua in Cologne, Germany.
As a long time student of Luo Dexiu, his main background are the Internal Martial Arts of Bagua Zhang, Xingyi Quan & Taiji Quan. He spent a total of about 20 years in various martial arts such as Shaolin Gong Fu, Chen- & Yang Style Taiji Quan, Karate, Judo & Wing Chun.
His new project is the foundation of a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu group in Cologne, where the former Martial Arts Dojo slowly but surely turns into a multidisciplinary movement space.
He takes great joy from inviting people from all over the world to share their expertise in various movement forms with his students and the local movement community.
Lately he worked intensively with dancers, such as Tom Weksler, to explore and research common ground in martial arts and dance as well as deeper layers of craftsmanship and artistic expression.
Carsten holds a B.A. in Chinese Philosophy & Literature, graduated from a Chinese Medicine school and works as Coach for Movement & Personal Development.
