Chen Double Saber

In addition to Pao Chui, my class will be learning the Chen tai chi double saber form. It’s fairly short, less than three minutes. Here’s a walk-through by Master Gohring of the opening moves.

Here’s a demo by Grand Master Chen Zhenglei. He starts with both sabers in the same hand, but otherwise, so far I think it’s the same form. I don’t know yet!

A fourth degree student at our school performed double saber at our last black sash graduation. This video of Mr. Guidry is definitely the right form. I’ll have to compare it with what Master Zhenglei does as I learn. I don’t even have the right sabers yet.
