Okay, next up we’re going to show some sai
spins on how to spin the sai. Now, spinning the sai when you use the weapon in general
it looks like it’s a spin anyway, so we’ll go over a bunch of different ways to spin
the sai. We already went over the one, it’s just a basic flip out. And it looks like a
spin so we’re going to bring those fingers over straight out, and back. That’s the basic.
Now, we’re going to go straight over and back, now that’s a faster one, okay. All fingers
straight over and out and back. Now a more advanced way of spinning we’ve done everything
going inside out, now we’re going to go the opposite way, outside to in. So, we’re going
to bring the sai around and back. Okay. All we do here, remember, we have it tight, we
bring our finger, our pointer finger down, make sure you’re gripping with your thumb,
flatten your hand out, so it’s loose. Spin, and catch. Using your wrist mostly, and catch.
Okay. Spin and catch. Spin and catch. Spin and catch. Spin and catch. All right, this
is a real fast one. So it goes… and that’s one of the spins. All right, now, another
spin is one that we’re going to use just as a strike. Now remember, when I said about
holding the sai, and you have it out, you don’t want your fingers around it, okay. Where
in this spin you defy all of that because it’s more of just a strike. We’re not trying
– we’re not going to – when our fingers are like this we’re not going to try to block.
You’re going to block this way. Okay. So we’re going to have our fingers in the middle, two
on one, two on the other, thumbs around the edges right there. Just like we’re doing a
regular bunch but we have sais in the middle. And we’re just going to do a regular spin.
And we’re going to go over, turn the wrist around, and around. And around. Just going
sideways completely straight, both. Just like that. So you have them straight, relax. All
right, now I’ll show you some of the spins faster and just put together in a more extreme
manner, okay. And that was just putting some of them together to make strikes, spins and
