    Default Excellent Library

    We have a great library here, but where is Long 8 and Staff Set?

    I was wondering about that as well. As my memory serves Parker had a staff set 1 & 2. I was taught a just a single staff set. Their are a couple of kenpo schools in my area and outside of mine no one teaches it. Most don't even seem to know that it existed. In the area were I live I can count on one hand the amount of people that know anything about staff set. It is complicated and exhausting (I used to practice with 1' steel pipe) but a lot of fun.

    I don't have Staff Set 2 written out, but Parker 8 is a sequence of knife thechiniques done on both right and left sides. Here is the order of the techniques the way I learned them anyway...

    KNIFE TECHNIQUES
    (1) WHIRLING LANCE
    (2) DESTRUCTIVE LANCE
    (3) SHIELDING LANCE
    (4) FLASHING LANCE
    (5) SNAKING LANCE
    (6) HOOKING LANCE
    (7) SLICING LANCE
    (8) DECEPTIVE LANCE
    (9) STRIKING LANCE
    (10) PROTECTING LANCE
    (11) THRUSTING LANCE
    (12) TWISING LANCE
    (13) LEAPING LANCE
    (14) CROSSED LANCE

    I had no idea that form 8 was in written form anywhere. Very few know it anyhow and there's no way you could learn it in written form to begin with.

    I always thought that Long Form 8 was never finished by Parker, and therefore all the other versions out there vary from organization to organization.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.
