Similar to the short videos of different staffs, but showcasing 25 long weapons. If there are points deducted for tangling up tassels I’d be in serious trouble. Usually the most troublesome (and, therefore, the most interesting) movement is the fourth cut which follows a diagonal slash from the right shoulder toward the left knee. The fourth movement requires a shift of the grip and a slash from the left shoulder toward the right knee. There is considerably more variation among these weapons when it comes to balance and weight as compared to simple staffs. The tactical assumption is that if one lands a successful strike with a long weapon that the target is effectively finished. So an enemy might survive a staff strike to the shoulder or thigh, for example. A similar strike with a pu dao should mean the combat is over.
