We would like to get Scott Rodell to teach a weekend of workshops in Melbourne on Chinese Swordsmanship including: the use of the the Jian, a straight double edged sword with one and two hands, and the Dao, a curved single edged cutting sword.
Scott M. Rodell has studied martial arts since the age of nine. He has dedicated the last three and a half decades exclusively to study of Yang Family Taijiquan (T’ai Chi Ch’uan) and has been privileged to receive instruction in push hands and free fighting from William C. C. Chen, sword and push Hands from T.T. Liang and the Yang Family Michuan Taijiquan, form, applications, push hands, fan, sword and spear, from Wang Yen-nien. He is the author of many books on martial arts and Chinese swordsmanship including: Chinese Swordsmanship – the Yang Family Taiji Jian Tradition, A Practical Guide to Test Cutting for Historical Swordsmanship, The Taijiquan Classics: A Martial Artist's Translation, and many others.
More information about Scott can be found on his school page (https://www.grtc.org/about/smr-bio/), and his books can be found on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Scott-M.-Rodell/e/B001K8ZF56/)
Sadly the cost of flights, and the low number of bookings meant that we couldn't run this workshop this year. We hope to organise another one at a similar time next year. Stay tuned for more updates
