Sharp performing the Wu Style Sword Series II (Seven Star)) from two different angles plus rare archival footage of both Grandmaster Ma Yueh Liang and Wu Ying Hua performing the 2 Person Sword form of the Wu school. A special chapter is included with the translation of all 54 forms names of the Seven Star Sword form, and they are specifically labeled as to their beginning and end. The second series of the Wu style sword is intricate and builds on previous movements learned in the first series. Much of the form contains more challenging power training and Fa-Jing, but also maintains the wondrous, internal aspects of T'ai Chi. The two person sword of the Wu School is another rare example that presents challenging training for two, and further builds upon the sophisticated ideas inherent in Wu Style T'ai Chi Ch'uan and demonstrates the softness and precision that must be in place to make T'ai Chi an effective martial art. It is presented in Five Chapters as follows: Chapter 1: Introduction This selectable introduction shows Sharp's training certificates and photos with both Ma Yueh Liang and Wu Ying Hua.
