This 2-DVD set is a complete course in the Chen Taiji Straight Sword form -- nearly FOUR HOURS of step-by-step instruction in the movements and the fighting applications of this amazing weapons form.
On disc #1, you'll see the complete form demonstrated from front and rear views. Then you will go inside a workshop where Sifu Ken Gullette guides students from all styles of martial arts through each movement of the form. You will learn the proper way to do each movement, and you will learn the mistakes to avoid as you see other students being corrected. As always, Ken teaches movements with an emphasis on the internal body mechanics.
On disc #2, Ken works with a training partner to show you fighting applications for each movement of the form -- intercepting, deflecting, blocking, adhering, controlling, leading, and countering with different types of cutting techniques. Finally, you will learn, step-by-step, how to work with a partner to go from form to fighting with a straight sword.
Despite the prominence of guns in our society, working with a traditional kung-fu weapon has many benefits. You learn to make the weapon an extention of your body as you do internal body mechanics, and you learn many self-defense techniques that can be useful if you ever find yourself in a self-defense situation and can pick up a stick or a broom handle. Plus, learning a weapon can give added depth to your Tai Chi training.

Some people study this form from a Tai Chi instructor for months or years and never learn this material.
