Cool beans.
The edge awareness looks a little questionable in the two person exchanges, but that's pretty typical with theoretical weapons work.

I think proper blade technique is primarily important to cut through a limb in one motion and to prevent other mistakes that can make your edge get stuck so as to fluidly move from opponent to opponent while keeping yourself safe

How much did the "dao" weigh ?

Too heavy it becomes a burden, too light it becomes flimsy and useless

Apply sticky energy to weapon holding hand

No matter how much I try to shake it off, the "Dao" stays with me

Might as well make friends with it

Well, like 30 seconds in, you perform what a western sword fighter would call a tent block, and then you guide the theoretical edge of your opponent's weapon onto your forearm, pointed at your face, while you put your own weapon behind your head.

That is how you die.

And like... even if you're wearing armor, that is a horrible idea. Even if it's just sticks, that is a HORRIBLE idea. Got me thinking about making a video.

C'mon, guys! This video was made 34 years ago. For those who maintain a longterm training regimen, personal skills are usually refined and improved considerably over the course of three decades time. As such, the OP video probably doesn't represent Wayne's current skill level. That said, what did your practice look like 34 years ago? ::)

I didn't have one, lol. I mean I was like.... 9?

As always I'm sure Wayne would dismantle me like a pit bull with a kitten.

I don't mean to criticize, Sifu asked me to explain what I meant so I shared my observation.

Deconstructing the problem with this situation is good fodder for a video for the rest of you to criticize me. Shouldn't you be encouraging that? :D

People can comment negatively on others clips....without displaying any of their work because ?

They write well :P

Kinda the point no ?

No current work displayed, as a marker....
When questioned about it, one is told there are many clips on the net..

When said work is displayed its said to be from a long time back excusing
any inconsistencies questioned?

Should be dismissed because

Understood. Those are all valid points to be sure. Nonetheless, criticism of a 30+ year old video doesn't resolve any issues you may have with Wayne's comments posted on this forum now. That was my point.
