    I use to do a Guandao form many years ago and after watching this, I miss the form I once knew.... it was not the same as the one I linked... but I miss it just the same

    A lot of the movements of the large frame didn't make much sense to me until I got a guandao in hand. Arthur Rosenfeld talked about how guandao was the primary "weapon of skill" in taiji on a podcast and I had to experiment myself.

    Behind you!
    I will eventually learn the kwan dao. My school has a set curriculum of when you learn which weapon. Of course, it's going to be quite the challenge for me because it's supposed to be a heavy weapon and a very long form that really tests and builds your strength. Not necessarily looking forward to it! :p

    I use to enjoy it but I never did get back to it.
