The Root of Short Weapons Training.
Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming teaches the fundamental techniques, solo drills, and 2-person matching practice for Saber training. Saber training develops the fundamental skills required for all other short weapons training, and it is traditionally the first short weapon learned in Chinese martial arts.
Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming teaches the history of the Saber (Dao) and discusses the strategies and proverbs related to the Saber. He explains the differences between Saber styles with examples from his private collection.
