Sifu Gullette takes you into the Chen Taiji Broadsword Form (Chen Tai Chi Broadsword) in a way that no other DVD does. Ken’s experience with the broadsword, both as a tournament champion and teacher, adds a new level of information that martial artists around the world have come to expect.
For centuries, this form had only 13 movements. In the 1930’s Chen Zhaopei added 9 more to create the form that’s practiced today by the Chen family. This is the form that Sifu Gullette learned from Grandmaster Chen Xiaowang’s students, Master Ren Guangyi and Jim & Angela Criscimagna.
Ken believes that learning a weapons form is useless unless you also learn to use the weapon as it was designed for fighting. It is true that most people will never get involved in a sword fight, but when you learn to use a traditional weapon such as a broadsword, you learn skills that could save your life if you ever find yourself in a self-defense situation and you are able to grab a stick or broom.
This DVD includes:
- Demonstrations of the complete form with front and rear views
- Individual instruction on each movement in the form–step by step–with an emphasis on the internal body mechanics
- Fighting applications for each movement in the form
- A special section teaching you basic broadsword techniques that can be used in any style of martial arts — blocks, deflections, cutting techniques, stances, plus you’ll learn how to use a scabbard in combat.
The DVD costs ONLY $19.99 with FREE SHIPPING! There is a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if you’re not satisfied for any reason.
