Like Simon said ( ), I have no clue what I’m really watching, but it was pretty cool. I think I understood the uppercuts and elbows though.This is the first half of a beginner level set in the Tibetan White Crane System.
I hope you find it interesting.
Yup, that was me from about eight years ago.Like Simon said ( ), I have no clue what I’m really watching, but it was pretty cool. I think I understood the uppercuts and elbows though.
Is that you doing the form?
I've done a lot of head scratching myself on the aikido koryu katas we don't do so often. Something will come up in class, someone's got a question, and one of the gnomes in my memory bank will wave a hand saying, "Hey, Boss... I think there is a sawari-waza technique set that teaches on that student's question."Yup, that was me from about eight years ago.
I posted some others that were more recent, from a few months ago. Trying to get everything documented on video for reference. I’ve found that as life takes me in other directions it can be disruptive to my training and I sometimes need to scratch my head a bit to remember some of them.
It is the first half of our primary beginner level empty-hand set. The rooting and rotational principles that drive the empty hand techniques apply equally well in our weapons sets. So no, this set is not “meant” to be a weapon set, but you have made a good and insightful observation.It could be my gross misunderstanding, but...
A very good proportion of that set looked like it would make more sense if you were using a blade of some sort.
Is it supposed to be fully empty hand or does it later translate to work with weapons?
