My newest DVD is hot off the presses -- the Hsing-I Staff Form. It's 90 minutes of classroom instruction on this strong Hsing-I staff form that captures the essence of the five fist postures: splitting, drilling, crushing, pounding, and crossing.
The form is appropriate for students who have already studied the fist postures. It's a good form just for Hsing-I practice, but it's also strong enough to win in tournament competition.
This DVD includes demonstrations of the form, from a front and rear view and in slow motion.
Following the demonstrations, I lead a class through the form step-by-step, with an emphasis on the internal body mechanics that make this such a powerful form.
Next, there's a section in which each movement is broken down into its fighting application. You'll watch--or practice along--as students are shown the fighting application and practice for each movement.
My weapons philosophy is clear -- if you're going to learn a weapons form, you must learn how to fight with that weapon. So the last half-hour of the DVD shows the class practicing staff stances, grips, blocking and striking techniques, and one-steps with a partner.
Here is a clip from the applications section of the DVD:
