A whole weekend training Chinese sword methods, for all styles and abilities. This seminar will focus on the ability to deliver the essential cutting methods of Jianfa (the practice of the Chinese Straightsword) and how to chain these methods into combinations of multiple cuts.  The seminar is suitable for all levels of ability from beginner to experienced jianke (Chinese swordsperson)

The exercises will be tailored to provide lots of opportunity to hone your sword skills, with solo practice, paired drills and controlled sparring. There may even be chance to don some protective gear and play a little bit harder!
