Tai Chi Saber Form
The saber form is a little longer than the flute; it has more movements and takes less than three minutes to perform (compared to flute, which takes only about a minute).
Videos from Master Gohring YouTube:
Additional video can be found by searching on Master Gohring's YouTube page.
The movements do have names, many of them familiar from the Long Form, but there is not always much resemblance. White Crane Spreads Wings is about the same, but Fair Lady Works the Shuttle is unrecognizable. The call:
Step Up Seven Stars Left
Note: There have been a few changes in the form as we learn it now. In the video above, lift knife left/right is repeated; we are now doing only one set, left and right.
Note: in the video (Part II), the next-to-last move is diagonal push knife. We are now doing straightforward push knife, which requires a stronger turn-in with the left foot to begin the next move.
Slice Up Left
Push Boat With Current (one)
Straight Forward Push Knife/Turn Around Over the Head Hidden Knife becomes a refrain I'll call TURN in the simplified version below, which is just how I remember the sequence.
