Code: S1194Duration: 85 min
Master the King of the Short Weapons! Three Sequences, Key Techniques, 15 Two-Person Matching Drills, Fighting Strategies, and over 50 Martial Applications in this classic video by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming.
Dr. Yang, Jwing Ming presents three Northern Shaolin Sword sequences with martial applications in this demonstration-only program. San Cai Jian requires extensive physical training, resulting in a strong, finely-tuned body and mind. San Cai Jian will improve your perception, timing, reaction, and sense of distance, allowing for the quickest and most appropriate response to any given situation. San Cai Jian is the only known Sword sequence that matches itself, and it can be practiced solo or with a partner.
Improve your balance, strength, focus, and martial skills with the elegant and deadly Kun Wu Jian Sword sequence. Mastering this sequence will bring you deeper understanding of the Sword, a wide variety of applications and techniques, and greater power.
The elegant art of Qi Men Jian will bring you to the highest levels of understanding in Chinese swordsmanship, training your body to peak condition, and your mind and spirit to the highest state of sharpness.
Each sequence is performed at slow and regular speeds. The program also includes Fundamental Stances, Key Techniques, 15 Two-Person Matching Drills, and over 50 Martial Applications. Mastery of the Sword is one of the highest accomplishments in Chinese martial arts.
This program and the Sword Fundamental Training video (YMAA) will provide a solid foundation in Sword technique.
Program features senior YMAA Instructors Nicholas Yang, Kathy Yang, and George Dominguez.
Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming (楊俊敏博士) started his Kung Fu training at the age of fifteen under the Shaolin White Crane (Bai He) Master Cheng, Gin Gsao (曾金灶). In thirteen years of study (1961-1974) under Master Cheng, Dr. Yang became an expert in the White Crane style of Chinese martial arts, which includes both the use of bare hands and of various weapons such as saber, staff, spear, trident, two short rods, and many others. Dr. Yang also studied traditional Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu with Master Li, Mao-Ching (李茂 清), himself a student of legendary Han, Ching-Tang, at the Tamkang College Guoshu Club (1964-1968) where Dr. Yang was studying Physics. Dr. Yang's Taijiquan lineage can be traced back to the Yang family through Master Kao, Tao (高濤) and his teacher Yue, Huanzhi (樂奐之), an indoor disciple of Yang, Chengfu (楊澄甫).
