Hey everyone, I've been working deeper into my sword form, and rather than just knowing the moves, I enjoy knowing the names of the moves to go along with them. For a start it makes it a lot easier to refer to individual moves when talking to someone, rather than saying "Hey the move where you come back from a thrust, step back, circle your jian around to deflect low." It's much easier to say "Black Dragon wags its tail" (Or whatever) Since if you're in the same school, you know what you're each referring to. This got me to thinking, why does the colour keep changing throughout the form. I don't know where I read it, but that the names of the moves implies on how they are to be used. While each move can be used many a way, it also gives you a little head start on how each should be used in the beginning. This lead me to what is the difference between a Black and Green Dragon in Chinese myth? I know the Azure dragon is the East Wind and the Gold Dragon was the symbol of the Emperor (at least on his banners and robes) but was there any major differences between different coloured dragons? Hence why this is in Chinese Culture and not Chinese swordsmanship.
