Section VII: Intermediate Weapons Forms
Intermediate Level Students

Once again, we do well to point out that many of our ''intermediate'' level weapons sets would be considered quite advanced by many other schools, not to mention many videotapes we reviewed that were advertised as advanced, but were obviously beginner's level in complexity when contrasted with Green Dragon's. The following is an excellent cross-section of five different weapons from four different styles.


Ta Feng Kung Chi Gwan (Staff)
$39.95  
5-Family
 

Windy Airs Staff This set from the 5-Family system has many compound movements throughout, is highly circular in nature with spins of different kinds, and contains deceptive moves. It is fast and yet teaches intricate manipulation. Concentrates heavily on the developmental aspects of staff work; that is, it is designed to promote confidence and ease of handling of the staff under a wide variety of circumstances.

P'iao Tuan Kun (Baton )
$39.95  
5-Family
 

5-Family Floating Short Baton This Short Baton set can be performed with any size baton up to 3'. Very fast single stick work. Executed on line, but with many rapid turns. Both one and two-handed techniques, but ''free swinging'' of the baton is emphasized. One of the snappiest baton sets you will see at this level. Lends itself very well to a wide variety of combat applications.

K'ao Pu Chu Hua Shan (Fighting Fan )
$39.95  
White Lotus
 

Fast, snappy, and yet graceful Fighting Fan set from White Lotus (a style noted for its deadly fan blocking and striking technique). Excellent shorter form to use as a base for introduction to advanced work for single or double fans. For men and women, but really deadly for women to utilize due to the ''innocent'' appearance. Strikes are made with both the endpoints and serrated edge. Fan is opened and closed repeatedly throughout the form. Simple, but very practical and effective.

Shuang T'eh Kuai Chang Tzu Wei (Iron Crutches )
$39.95  
White Lotus
 

Double Iron Crutch (Tonfa) set from White Lotus. Don't pass up this or the next form up because of the limited way you have seen these two weapons used by sport karate stylists! This is one of the finest forms ever at this level-- explosive, powerful, fast! Employs all the common hand positions, emphasizes spins, and uses all of the striking surfaces. Rapidly changing stancework and maneuvering. Can use the regular ''tonfa'' for which many designs are available everywhere, but the longer and heavier Chinese ''crutch'' type is even better. Dynamic intermediate level set teaching all aspects of tonfa use.

Hong Long Tan Tao (Broadsword/ Saber )
$39.95  
Northern 5-Animal Shaolin
 

Very dynamic Northern Shaolin broadsword/saber form. Encompasses most basic sword moves, spins, & carry positions, while also employing punching & kicking maneuvers. Very challenging at the intermediate level, and was originally taught in the Orient as an advanced form! Green Dragon places it here because the highly prized Willowleaf Broadsword and the White Lotus Rolling Thunder Saber are more difficult. Excellent foundation set for swordwork of all kinds. Highly recommended.

Cuts Like Lightning Knife
$39.95  
White Lotus
 

Pai Lien La Hsiang Shan Tien Tao Green Dragon Studio has been known worldwide for making available the advanced fighting forms from the secretive White Lotus Combined System (a blend of N. & S. 5-Animal Shaolin family material representing 30+ different styles from every area of China - not to be confused with the single style of that name or individual schools or the society of that name). This sets is aptly named the White Lotus Cuts like Lightning Knife as it is fast-paced and graceful involving almost constant circularity in maneuvering as well as in manipulating the weapon. There are numerous knife flips and hand exchanges that require and build great comfort with knife work. It is an excellent form from which to derive combat applications. 40 min.
