    No, but I plan on buying some anyways.


    Do we have double ax forms in our curriculum?

    It's all in good fun.
    Oh, and SD, there is a big difference between conversing with and "hitting on" a person.... If I were to "hit on" someone, it wouldn't be on an internet forum. I just try to be nice.

    SD talking sh!t. Who would have imagined?

    Anyway, I don't want to get off topic here, I was reading the Media and Martial Arts Culture forum and someone mentioned Liu Kwei there and I was curious. I also read an article once (probably written by Gene) on Liu Kwei and wondered if anyone practiced with the double axes. Anyone?

    wouldn't "Li Kwei's Double Axes" have some special form for Li ? Kinda like a Kwan Dao form for Kwan, even though many styles have their own Kwan Dao.

    I only read part of Outlaws of the Marsh, and Li Kwei seemed like a ***** to me.

    I have some video of of the liu kwai axes performed at one of our tournaments a few years ago JP. Do you have any video of events or seminars? If so, maybe we could do some trading? Same offer goes out to any other SD ppl, if you have some video of past tournaments, events, seminars, etc.

    Pm or email me.

    Li Kwei axes

    I did an article on Li Kwei in our Jul Aug 2002 in our special about Outlaws of the Marsh. OotM is a famous Chinese novel, sort of a Robin Hood tale, where Li Kwei is a main character. It is also the basis of many martial arts movies.

    When you're ready to buy a pair, we have two versions: wushu or manly man.

    Thanks Gene. I read your article long before I started posting here on the forum. I was hoping to find a video of the form as well, but that appears to be fairly rare. anyway, I doubt that I will be learning the form anytime soon, but if that changes, I'll invest in a pair.
