The sword is considered the king of short weapons in Chinese martial arts. Students can expect to learn basic body structure, various ways of gripping the sword, and a handful of solo and partner drills to help deepen their understanding of the weapon. This workshop will introduce basics for short weapons and will cover fundamental skills for both Shaolin and Taiji sword.
There will also be additional partner drills and exercises available to help build on previously learned material for students who attended last year's sword workshops. Instructor: YMAA Disciple Jon Chang
