Biangun &Application Seminar
October 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am - October 28, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
Baji Association organizes a weekend seminar in Helsinki from 27th to 28th of October 2018, where Master Lü Baochun will introduce Biangun staff form and how to transform staff techniques into unarmed fighting.
Master Lü Baochun is a living legend of traditional chinese martial arts, who has trained martial arts his whole life. He has worked among other things as the teacher of unarmed combat for Chinese special police as well as won numerous challenge matches and competitions in his youth. Master Lü´s fluent english and knowledge will guarantee the participants a huge leap forward. Master Lü emphasizes the importance of questions from students and will give personal assistance to all participants.
Chinese biangun or “whip-staff” is a traditional chinese weapon, which is easy-to-use, versatile and fast-paced weapon based on unexpected strikes. It is one of the Master Lü’s specialities.
The staff reaches from the ground to the trainee’s chest and thickens towards one end, can easily be described as speedy, dynamic and as striking unexpectedly but powerfully. The biangun is a handy weapon, the techniques of which are useful in both close quarters combat as well as combat at a distance, and its techniques imitate and combine several weapon styles, such as the spear, the saber, the straight sword and the club.
Practicing with weapons develops practitioner’s body control and strength which makes good supportive exercise for unarmed training and combat.
We have a (limited) number of staffs for people who want to join the course, but do not yet have their own.
On the second day, we’ll do the “empty hand” applications from the staff techniques, so it’s worth taking MMA sparring gloves with you. However, these are not mandatory.
The seminar is open for everyone with any association or martial arts background! You are all welcome!
