10am to 4pm
Dao is one of the oldest weapons in Chinese martial art history. There are 18 commonly used weapons in ancient China, and dao is at the top of the list.
The routine is called Taiji 13 sabres, and is built on the foundations of the taiji hand form. The hand form was traditionally called taiji 13 postures, describing the thirteen main taiji techniques, and the sabre form was named to show the connections with the hand form.
This sabre routine was passed down from Grand Master Yang Cheng Fu, the third generation bearer of Yang style taiji.
This is a refresher training course for those who attended the first weekend course in March 2018. Following on from the March weekend's introduction to traditional Yang Sabre, this weekend will focus on more in-depth teaching of the essence of broad sword practice.
Participants will get further insights into the accuracy of technique in each movement.
Deyin instructors who took part in the March weekend training, together with this coming weekend course could be qualified to teach the broad sword routine upon passing the end of course technical assessment. (Note: end of course technical assessment is required for the qualification).
Who is it for

Enthusiasts who did not attend the previous Sabre weekend but would like to attend this seminar are also welcome to book, but on a first come first serve basis if there are too many applicants.
