Product Description

The Complete Saber Form, Qigong, and Applications.

Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming demonstrates the traditional 32-posture Taiji Saber long form, with basic drills, qigong, and martial applications. Saber training develops the fundamental skills required for all other short weapons training. Saber is traditionally the first short weapon learned in Taijiquan (tai chi chuan), and is the foundation of double-blade sword training.

This program is organized in five sections:
Taiji Saber Qigong
Basic Stances
Basic Saber Drills
Taiji Saber Sequence
Taiji Saber Martial Applications
Also included is a DVD-only 8-minute excerpt of Dr. Yang's lecture on the subject of saber training.

DVD includes Interactive YMAA Catalog with 50 Additional Minutes of Preview Trailers for All YMAA Videos

The Taiji Saber DVD has a bonus section of an 8 minute lecture on Taiji Saber by Master Yang, Jwing Ming. He explains how there are four major weapons learned in Chinese Martial Arts, those being the saber, spear, sword and staff. Traditionally the saber was the first short weapon a student would study. The saber has the most basic skills and once learned, the other weapons become much easier to learn. The other short weapons share 60 to 70 % of the saber techniques, as related by Master Yang.

Master Yang relates an old saying that goes
100 days for bare hand
1000 days for spear
10,000 days for sword

This DVD is a demonstration of Taiji Saber. It is not an instructional DVD in the usual manner of DVDs being released by YMAA. A student should have a good grasp and execution of the bare hands form of Taijiquan prior to studying the Saber form. If a student is already well versed in the bare hands form, the Saber form is not a difficult form to learn.

When one learns Taijiquan, usually there is no initial knowledge of the movements and techniques inherent to Taijiquan, consequently it can be difficult for the beginning student. Once a strong foundation is established in Taijiquan, the Saber form merely adds to the Taijiquan form and students more quickly grasp the art compared to when they first began their studies of Taijiquan.

Following the lecture Master Yang demonstrates the form, which has a lot of similarities to both the Yang Long Form as well as the Yang Sword Form. He displays an obvious grasp of the form as he goes through the movements.

Master Yang and three other students, including his daughter Kathy, then demonstrate Taiji Saber Qigong.

Usually Dr Yang's material is first rate however this DVD does little more than demonstrate forms and drills with very little dialogue. Saber fundamental training or Shaolin Saber Basic Sequences is much more useful.
