Martial Arts knowledge was kept alive in Asia and it is usually presented in an Asian cultural context. This can present obstacles to the Western learner. Part of the core philosophy is “respect the roots of the art and present it in a way that fits the learning style of each individual”. This keeps the art alive and speeds up learning tremendously. Why do we focus on weapons training, even for beginners? One must understand how a weapon is used to defeat the weapon. This is the way the majority of martial arts were taught pre-20th century. Empty hand skills were only a backup in case of a lost or broken sword. If you can’t defend yourself with a weapon, you sure as hell won’t be able to bare-handed. Using longstaff techniques develops understanding of a wide range of properties that enable the practitioner to employ any object as a weapon. This DVD gives you a survey of several techniques and delivers basics for education.
