Master Dao Shi Performs Plum Blossom Broadsword Meihuadao

The Plum Blossom Broadsword, or 梅花刀 Méihuādāo, is an exciting taolu form that demonstrates a certain mastery of Shaolin kung fu as it requires many elements of strict foundation jibengong training.

It's a fast moving form with fast defense-based strikes. It requires great wrist strength and flexibility as well as athleticism.

The broadsword weapon itself is the second key weapon of Shaolin (the staff or cudgel being the primary weapon).

Master Dao performs the broadsword at the Chinatown Festival in 2017. Although this form is best performed with a wider area, he is still able to make the adjustments and demonstrate the essence of the broadsword.
