This includes a bit of adjustment back-stepping because there was not enough room.
Parts of this remind me of the Xingyiquan 5 elements staff set, except the stance would be back weighted and I believe the strikes on the opposite side, But it has the same 2 handed clubbing strikes
What I like about his one is that it is double ended, meaning we shift and hit with both ends, but we don’t grip in the middle. Rather, we shift the grip so we take advantage of the reach and the power of the full staff.
Everything is done with that full body rotation/connection I keep talking about.
I plan to be also a supporting member by February
As for the middle grip, it's surprisingly mostly an okinawan thing. The idea is you trade distance of having to get closer for being able to hit quickly and control with all three secretions of the staff. Which is a null point if your opponent stays long group and hits you lol. So i teach and use both fighting styles for the staff.
That is a long staff form.
Ayup. Maybe someday I’ll post the entire empty-hand set, that I only posted the first half of in another thread. That’s one of our beginner level sets. Actually, our longest sets are in the beginner level.
This set is mostly single-end staff and not middle grip, using the length but we switch the ends back and forth.
I posted another staff set on another thread where we simply grip at one end without switching.
