VCD#1459 Shaolin Plum Blossom Saber
1 Hour, VCD pricing, Chinese/English
Shi Yong Zhi, a national champion in Shaolin style, shows this short, clean and powerful form. There is a good deal more personality and "organic" movement in this mature performance than many of the other Shaolin VCDs we have seen. The set is not difficult or long but the left handed coordination with the sword is reasonable and relatively authentic compared to the kind of set that relies on mindless whirling and flashing of the knife.
