From the Contributor

YMAA: Yang's Martial Arts Association was established in Boston, MA in 1982. With the intent of preserving traditional Chinese Gongfu (Kung Fu) and Qigong , Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming began training students in the rigors of Shaolin Long Fist and White Crane Gongfu as well as Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan. Dr. Yang also undertook his life-long dream of teaching and researching the Chinese arts and introducing them to the West through many books, videos and DVDs.

Search Amazon for "YMAA" , "Jwing-Ming Yang" or "Dr. Yang" to find more quality martial arts and health titles available from YMAA.

YMAA Publication Center has been a publisher of high quality traditional martial arts and health books since 1983, and is a pioneer in the cultural exchange between the East and West. While the West has successfully developed the material sciences, the East is celebrated for its levels of spiritual cultivation. During this period of exchange, the building of bridges is critical for the successful integration of the achievements of both societies.

Product Description

Qigong, The Complete Form, and Martial Applications.
TAKE THE NEXT STEP IN TAIJI.

The Saber has commonly been known as the foundation of the double blade sword training. However, it is generally seen that most Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) practitioners have preferred learning Taiji Sword first. They do not understand that without the Saber's basic drills and skills, the potential they can reach in Taiji Sword training will be shallow.

This program is organized into five sections. • Taiji Saber Qigong • Basic Stances • Basic Saber Drills • Taiji Saber Sequence • Taiji Saber Martial Applications
Taiji Saber is traditionally learned before the Taiji Sword sequence.
Performed by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, and senior students.

3.0 out of 5 stars a good supplement September 2, 2007
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I purchased this tape when I started attending a Yang saber class. The instructor had learned the YMAA saber style by watching this same video so I was assured that the form shown on the tape would be exactly the form that I was going to be learning. Note: care should be taken in "picking" a tape/DVD to use as a training aid -- there are lots of different "family" saber/broadsword form and the differences do not seem to be as well documented as with the the "open hand" T'ai Chi forms.

I really wish this production included more audio. You only get to WATCH Dr. Yang and a few senior students run through various exercises and the saber form. There is nothing that could be called "instructional" -- NO audio, NO slo-mo, NO step-by-step. The tape's only audio , other than background music, is a voice reading "chapter headings" in both English and Chinese' There is no matching book.

Bottom Line: if you're studying the YMAA saber form this is the only game in town. This would NOT be a good choice if you are wanting lo learn a saber form without working with a teacher. The YMAA promises that a DVD version will be available in early 2008.
