Three Swords Four Blades

Blades

We are posting, for the first time, a trio of sword and knife forms including the Miao Dao (forerunner of the samurai sword), double straight sword with tassels (a difficult weapon to master, X2) and a respectable version of Drunken straight sword (stock went so fast on this one you might have to use our want list).

Each of these requires a special technique and we’ve given a few clues as to playing the weapons. Check it out for yourself but don’t run your thumb over the blade. Each of these new en face editions has both Chinese and English text, plus subtitles for the accompanying VCDs which demonstrate the form. Book and VCD come together as a package.
