DVD and Pair of SAI. PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS! Pair of 18" stealth sai and instructional DVD. For the first time on video, the Sai techniques and sequence are taught in step by step detail. 275 minute DVD. Made popular by RAPHAEL of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and ELEKTRA from Daredevil, the Sai are a challenging weapon that demands precision, agility, and graceful execution of its techniques to truly master. The sai is a unique baton weapon because of its two prongs and thin design. The shape and prongs allow for quick, easy flipping of the weapon. You flip the sai outwards for middle-to-long range strikes and blocks, and inwards for maintaining a tight, protective guard... SAI practice will greatly improve your dexterity, strength, and coordination. The skills acquired from sai training can easily be applied to other activities that require finely-tuned motor skills, from daily tasks to the use of other weapons... NICHOLAS YANG offers this comprehensive training program for learning the Sai. His step by step instruction includes numerous fundamental techniques, drills, and principles with the double sai, including a complete sai sequence with martial applications... You will learn: Sai history and theory, Solo training, including blocking and striking, Partner training, including sai vs various weapons, and the complete sai sequence, slow and full speed.... DR. YANG, JWING-MING makes a special appearance to introduce the program with a brief history of the sai. The techniques and sequence come from Dr. Yang's extensive training in Shaolin WHITE CRANE Kung Fu, and can be incorporated into any fighting style. (Sai is commonly used in Okinawan and Isshinryu arts. These techniques can be translated for any double weapon, including tonfa and two short rods.)
