As I stated last time, Sinawali drills are more than just memorizing patterns in fact even though there are dozens and dozens of patterns I rarely teach more than six. It is pointless to learn 30-40 stylized patterns if you do not understand what you are doing.
We teach the drills strictly for the student to gain coordination, timing and reflex skills. It sharpens the lines of attack and helps the student to become ambidextrous with the weapons. They will learn proper distance and footwork when working with a partner.
Heaven 6 is one of the most commonly taught and recognized drills, but I am not convinced that everyone understands what they are actually doing in the drill. Here we try to rectify that.
