The very first thing, that the 棍 Gùn pole is always stick to the body, that is the third control point
What kind of pole / stick is to be used ?
The weapon should be controlled with the whole body. If it is very light than we can use only arms, we lost the original purpose. During the video the length is said to be around eye high, and the diameter is around 3 cm. We also heard shoulder high stick. Actually the the size depends on the practitioner …
Using the heavy pole is definitely outdoor activity, do not risk it inside..
When practice use the body, 1.05 how not to use it…
1.25 shows the 3 point control again. When throw it out 3,05 also use the body. The pick up also body work, not just one arm…
The saber has the same theory, at 4,05 you see the today light saber usage with the arm. But with the heavy one it does not work. see below
The not sharp angle is to be supported with the body, like this moment at 4:50
Important that the saber arrow never point down to the ground. That case need plus on movement when start to do any movement. 6:07
The heavy weapon practice is not for hurting other, it is to change the practitioner body
Differences about teaching army guys or someone to understand … long lecture
