《單刀法選》
Dandao Fa Xuan
Chinese Long Saber
DVD Part 2 Package

Bringing words from a 400 years old Chinese swordsmanship manual to life, to help aspiring swordsmen to learn this ancient art.

What is the 'Chinese Long Saber DVD Part 2'?

Based On An Ancient Chinese Swordsmanship Manual

Written 400 years old in the Ming Dynasty, "Dandao Fa Xuan" is a swordsmanship manual that teaches the techniques of a 2-handed saber measuring 1.5 metres long.

Translation From Classical Chinese To English 

Each line translated is positioned side-by-side with the English text, for you to better understand its meaning.

Interpretation From A Battlefield Perspective

How you'd fight in a duel, is different compared to how you'd fight in a large-scale battlefield.

Stance #12 to #22 - 85 Minutes Of Video Content

There's a total of 34 stances in "Dandao Fa Xuan".

This DVD Part 2 covers only Stance #12 to #22.

As the content is too huge, remaining parts of the manual will be covered in subsequent DVDs.

How did this DVD package come about?

     Hi, my name is Jack Chen. Back in 2010, I created a few videos on YouTube to showcase certain portions of this Dandao Long Saber manual and subsequently launched ChineseLongsword.com with a vision of translating ancient Chinese martial arts manuals to English and showcase them as practical battlefield techniques.

With my 12 years of martial arts background:

  • In Chinese and Japanese swordsmanship (practically not a day goes by without me swinging a sword)

  • Full speed weapons sparring practice (so that all interpretation & techniques are verified against an uncooperative live opponent.)

 

I sincerely hope this DVD package will help you to learn and understand this precious ancient Chinese Long Saber manual.
