A thorough guide to the weapons forms, aimed at advanced Wing Chun students and instructors
Weapons training focuses on core elements of power usage and precision, improving stance, structure, and strength. Mastering control of the weapons focuses on the need for total body control and absolute accuracy of movement. This guide covers the principles of the forms for Baat Cham Dao (the eight slashing or chopping knives form) and Luk Dim Boon Kwun (six and a half point pole). It gives clear, concise explanations of the shape, structure, and movements of the weapons forms, and applications where appropriate. Each section of the forms is illustrated in detail with step-by-step photographs. This guide also provides an essential training checklist to each key technique within the forms and examines the benefits of training in the weapons forms.
