Shaolin Broadsword

Added 01-Oct-2006


A young monk at Da Fa Wang Temple in Henan Province performs his single broadsword pattern. The monk's movements are crisp and fluid and he controls his body well, however he has not yet achieved mastery of his chosen weapon. Although the attacking movements of the sword are sure, the young man sometimes looses focus when the sword is passive or returning, allowing the blade to waver.

Emei Boxing

Added 01-Oct-2006


Emei Quan is not a single style. Rather it is a family of styles that have long been practised together. This Emei pattern is distinguished by lightning snake hand attacks and rapid changes of direction, with strikes often delivered at 90 or 180 degrees to the line of attack on the previous movement. In a way characteristic of many northern and internal styles, and different from the southern schools, the stance is strong but not rooted, allowing the whole body to be thrown behind movements, adding its momentum to the power generated by the limbs and waist.

Baji Muslim Master Pattern

Added 03-Sep-2006


This Baji master is noticeably older than the other practitioners featured in Silver videos this month. Yet in the context of martial arts, that only indicates a compliment. His pattern still contains the power and intent of the younger stylists, but each movement is perfectly placed and controlled. There is no excessive movement, no limb out of alignment, no hesitation or uncertainty. What does it show? This man has placed his faith in the principles of the style, and not in strength or aggression.
