Rope Dart DVD 2: The Decision To Not Have A Form

| by | Products | 0 comments:

The decision to not put a form on the rope dart DVD was easy. Personally, I have only seen 3 different rope dart forms. One is the compulsory form set up by the Chinese Wushu governing body. It is the first rope dart form I had ever seen, found on the documentary “Precious Treasure,”which showcases rarely seen Kung Fu systems. There is Sifu Dennis Browns “Silver Dragons Tongue” form (I know he is a student of Sifu Willy Lin but am not 100% if he got the rope dart from him) and of course, there is Jin HengLi and anything … Continued

Rope Dart Rings Theory

A major component of the rope dart are the rings that connect the dart to the rope. The rings are often overlooked as an essential part of the weapon and I have recently heard some alternative logic with regard to the rings functionality. First, let’s look at what I have personally heard people describe as the rings function. I have heard that the rope dart rings purpose is to entangle the intestines/guts of a pierced enemy so that when the dart is withdrawn from the body it will pull out said enemy’s intestines/guts. Now, I am not claiming I know … Continued
