Shaolin Traveling Dragon Sword

Grandmaster Wong demonstrating a pattern called “Breeze Sways Floating Green” from the Shaolin Traveling Dragon Sword Set

The "Shaolin Traveling Dragon Sword" is as beautiful to watch as it is deadly effective for combat. The names of the patterns are also very poetic, like "Breeze Sways Floating Green", "Separate Mist to Find Silence" and "Dry Dews on Lotus Platform".

The uninitiated may have much difficulty finding out how the patterns can be applied for fighting, or how a dainty sword could be used against a big, long or heavy weapon. You may like to have some fun trying to figure out these answers for yourselves.

The names of the patterns in Chinese pronunciation and Chinese characters are provided below.
