Clip from Nine Dragon Saber DVD available on yinstylebaguazhang.com
Weapons in Bagua are unique in that they are considered an extension of Bagua's empty hand techniques, rather than seen as a separate system, as is the case with many styles. Use of the large saber is a speciality of the Bagua school. Its training can help practitioners to develop full body strength, coordination and endurance.
The Nine Dragon Saber form featured on this DVD contains ten distinct sections. Each section contains its own unique flavor, differing in the use of stepping, body movement, saber technique. He Jinbao gives a complete introduction to the techniques of each section including body movement, stepping and traditional technique names. He then demonstrates the section slowly for beginners to follow along and familiarize themselves with the movements. Next, there is a comprehensive discussion on the finer points for each section. Finally, each section is shown practiced with power and fluidity. Copyright (C) 2009 Yinstylebaguazhang.com
