Bagua's Heroic Blades

When I was young I didn't train to this song, but sometimes it got me pumped up enough to go out and train. This is just basic practice using the Stealth Tiger Sword, Six Harmony Sword, Crescent Moon Swords and a little bit of Qing Ping Sword. I have also been working a lot of foot work practice with weaponry both single and duel handed.

Bagua is Super Bad!!

This is a video I shot from a still camera (thanks Cloak). It just kind of shows some training ideas I have been playing with.  Keep training!!

The negative feelings that continually remind us to doubt our worth and empower the lusts of our flesh. Our pure soul is bound by our flesh containers that desire the things of this world. The real fight takes place in your ability to continually do the right thing. It's easy to hurt someone that you don't know. It's immensely more difficult to not hurt the ones that you do
