In the Wudang Sword Method, the most important set is the Thirteen Patterns. They’re named according to Thirteen Characters, namely 抽/Chou – Draw, 帶/Dai – Drag, 提/Ti – Lift, 格/Ge – Block, 擊/Ji – Strike, 刺/Ci – Stab, 點/Dian – Tap, 崩/Beng – Flick, 攪/Jiao – Stir, 壓/Ya – Depress, 劈/Pi – Chop, 截/Jie – Intercept, 洗/Xi – Clear. It’s just like Taijiquan’s 掤/Peng, 捋/Lu, 擠/Ji, 按/An, 采/Cai, /挒Lie, 肘/Zhou, 靠/Kao; 前進/Forward Advance, 後退/Backward Retreat, 左顧/Look Left, 右盼/Expect Right, & 中定/Central Stability. In addition, there’s Sword Dancing, which has no fixed patterns. You shouldn’t try to learn it until your Sword Art is pure & subtle. It is impossible to comprehend without receiving Oral Instruction.
