    Long Form 8 is a challenging form and takes a lot of practice. I have known this form for almost 10 years now. There were some differences in his form from the way that I practice it, and I thought he had pretty big circles on the first technique. It is easy to critique his form, but I challenge people to critique him in the same way once they actually know the form. Overall, I think he he did a good job.

    I love Long Form 8 with the exception of the switching of the hands carrying the knives.

    That depends on how you do the form.

    I never was taught the entire form, but the beginning looked a little different than what I remember. What I do remember is that it is indeed a challenge and though I couldn't see his footwork, he wasn't doing all that bad.

    And one thing that is important to understand CC is that different forms will bring out different "visual results' from people. In other words, you might watch someone perform a form and think, "hmmm, not bad". But in some instances, it really wasn't the performers fault that it was "not bad", it was just the way the form is designed. Long Form 7 is a form that immediately comes to mind, especially when I compare that form to much of the "flashy" looking stick forms that I know from my Kung Fu training.

    So, you might watch someone perform Long Form 8, and think that he/she moves ok in the martial arts. Then, that same person, may perform a more visually stimulating form with some flash, and the same audience might think, "oh my gosh.....that person moves like Jet Li".

    For future reference, if it is not you performing in the video clip, it does not belong in the members in motion forum. This forum is for our members to showcase their ability.

    Yep, you are right and that is one of the reasons why you would probably not see me do Long Form 8 for weapons in a major competition, unless of course, it was a Kenpo tournament.

    I have actually never seen this form in its entirety before. I wish I could have seen it from the front. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for posting! What struck me is that the standing and stancing sections are almost identical to the standing and stancing sections of what I know as Finger Set. The difference is that it's an empty hand form as opposed to a knife form.
    Be careful what you say, some may take it the wrong way.

    I missed out on that years internationals but from the looks of the video one of my school mates made it (female green belt walking in front of the camera in the first portion of the video)

    Really would have liked to have seen the form from the front or the side, but still looked good. Makes me cringe thinking about doing it with real knives!
