The fuill name of this form is Five Tiger Breaks the Gate Knife and it uses a very long cloth as a colourful and noisy distraction against an opponent, helping to camouflage the knife blade. Although you may have never thought of yourself as practising weapons, they actually will train the body in a different way than barehanded forms do. Master Wu Chun Yuen still practised this form in his seventies and so we know that it is a skill for all ages. Regular practice of the form will make the body light, flexible and the mind agile as it develops coordination internally and externally.
