Since Sifu Taner & Sifu Graziano recently released a handful of new BJD (Baat Cham Dao) DVDs, we thought it might be fitting to ask Sifu Taner a few questions about the swords.
Lets see what he had to say!
What made you want to create the BJD series?
The BJD is a part of the complete Wing Chun System. Therefore, it is also important to show the BJD in great detail.
Why is it important to Wing Chun today? In your opinion, what is the major benefits of learning the swords?
To understand the complete system it is necessary to learn the BJD. There are many benefits, but the major benefit of the BJD is the mind set. When using the knifes you have only one chance. This means that your timing, your speed, your angle, your space and your emotions have to perfectly match each other. This mind setting will change your complete Wing Chun system.
Do you have any thoughts about “finishing” the system?
You can never finish a System, however, you can show every technical detail. This is our way that we will finish the system.
