Posted:Just watched the video called "The Shaolin Temple" with Jet Li.There are some really inspirational stuff in it. I especially liked the guy swinging the rope dart under his back whilst he "wiggled" lying with his back on the ground Non-Https Image Link . I am definitly going to give that one a go Non-Https Image Link I really can recommend this movie Non-Https Image Link for seeing rope dart and staff moves.Malcolm
Posted:its a good move malcolm, i've tried it myself. (difficult though Non-Https Image Link )for some more martial arts action (with some but not much chain moves ),,try "iron Monkey" (also jet li? )its sub-titled but action packed Non-Https Image Link by far the best agility and strength i've seen in martial artists for ages.
Posted:I just saw this movie yesterday after Rick recommended it on a rope dart thread. I liked it alot, Flipmodius and I slowed the rope dart scene down super slow and tried to thieve some stuff but he was originally spinning it so fast that it was unintelligable. Also, there was a little weapon used before it that kinda looked like a crossbreed between poi and ropedart, like just one 4 foot long poi. Anyone seen this or know what I'm talking about?

Posted:erm... for the record, the 3 section staff is quite different in form or function to the 7 or 9 section chain whip.(obviously the one you mentioned durbs was slightly different ) Both are classfied as 'soft' wushu weapons for their ability to deform, and the former weapon lends itself well to staff forms whereas the latter is ace-cellent as a source of acrobatic poi.
The move mentioned in Malcolm's opening thread I can perform with a heavy 3section, but i have no chain whip to try it out with.
weapons are nice to watch but are less relevant in an age of firearms and nachos.
Posted:i saw it with demios as she already said and the stuff he was doin with the rope dart was amazing i could only pick out the mechanics of one move easily tho i won't be able to do it well for some time. the move where he swings the rope under him while doing really small rubber bands.
