A lot of performances of sabre in all its varieties, modern and traditional, single and double, short and long. There are some interesting traditional styles, and some explanation of them in Chinese. Footage is from the early 80s to 2003 that I can find dated. Some is very clear, some a little fuzzy, due to the original format. There is some rare footage here, and well worth sorting through a lot of sabre even if it isn't your favourite weapon.
