very awesome! perfect counter / companion to the water form (which I came across first)

That collection in your sig would justify a form called "General Grievous's handout" Smiley

You have excellent forms! I've now watched the entire elements series, and my favorites are probably this one and the earth form. I really enjoy the ferocity and seemingly unstoppable strength of both. Would you mind if at some point I posted a sort of cover video using these as a dulon to practice from?

I created this saber form for the Distant Earth Knighthood representing one of the elements: the fire.

The philosophy:
- The FIRE is a mainly two handed form converting physical strength to powerful blows, slashes and stabs.
- As the flames reach out from the fire, these techniques are focusing on impulsive moves to totally overcome the opponent as soon as possible - effectiveness over art.
- It's an attacking form trying to be decisive very early. In return it does not have sophisticated defence, the defence of the Fire is only good enough to prepare to launch another powerful series of counter attacks so timing here is crucial.
- The techniques are simple and follow straight lines covering all zones. How precise they are, will create the space around the form user to utilize the next (possibly the finishing) attack.

Hope you'll enjoy, any feedbacks are very welcome Smiley

I'm already thinking about another mini-series but first I'd like to figure out how to do a proper "green box" in the video editor... Smiley

I can possibly help you with that (if by "green box" you would also happen to mean "green screen")

As a wonderful surprise I've just run into Enso Marr's interpretation of this Fire form on facebook!
The video is fantastic, hope he'll share it here as well! Smiley

Spent a few hours recently breaking down the Fire form move by move. The relatively simple lines made Fire the natural one to start with, though I really wish YouTube had a slow motion button. In any case this is what I have so far, though I did forget to actually strike at the end of that forward spin there.

Threw it up on one of the Facebook saber groups for critique and it was a pleasant surprise to have the originator of the form himself commenting on it. Very cool.

There were a couple other takes. Might throw one of the faster ones up on YouTube at some point.

May your fire burn both bright and beautiful, within and around you, that all may know your unrelenting freedom.

It's long overdue for me to go on with building the element forms further. I already have laid down the fundaments of the website dedicated to the forms and the Knighthood last year, now it's time to go deeper into the rabbit hole.
First I'm going to write a short description to each forms (but still longer than those few sentences I edited into the videos) and maybe I'll get to make a few short videos as well to "explain" the what and how of these forms in more details. Will see how far this season takes me, so many plans, so little time but both of my midichlorian cells are exicted! Smiley

Here's the briefing I've just finished of the FIRE form which I'll edit into the website (once I figured out how to restructure it effectively to accommodate bodies of text):
English is not my native language, if you find anything off in it, please let me know! Smiley


"Fire is an element which does not make compromises - the flames are feeding on everything in and around to advance further, to spread higher and wider. In the core there's the essence of expansion, the hunger to transform, the power to overcome. It's still a dance: a definite, irreversible touch delivered by a scorching rhythm, the flames.
    The Form of the Fire lights up the inner spark and lets the upcoming energy loose. The techniques are straight forward, they do not try to conceal anything nor to give doubts about their whatabouts. There are series of attacks in between the regrouping defensive moves with the intention to become clearly decisive and overwhelming. As the flames spread out in the fire, the slashes, stabs and strikes of this form reach out to all zones the opponents may occupy leaving the least chances to escape the outbursts. At the same time there's control over the blade to keep the concentrated movement, the "heat" within a certain barrier - it creates a focus as well as prevents the energy to overspread and lose the momentum. The stances of the form are strong to support the power delivered by the blade and also flexible enough to provide the mobility to gain control over a wider space around.
    The Form of the Fire is a way to excercise the extremes of the conditions "burn" and "extinguished" while gives the opportunity to find and embrace the rhythm which connects the two. There's harmony in the fire as long as it's focused within its own boundaries and exclusively controls its own space and pontential."

From what the video showed this is almost exactly how I fight. I do light that it is fire too.
