     Hadn't made a video in awhile so I figured I'd do one today and start this thread, as not to blow up the forum.

Thanks guys, can't wait to do this at night. Also can't wait for my sentinel v4 staff to arrive with two 32" blades. In this I'm using a 36 on my aeon, and a 32 on the initiate side.

I can definitely tell you've been working on your crossovers as well as you had a little bit of a 3-beat weave in there at one point. So huzzah!
And yeah, you will find(let me know if I'm wrong please) plane control will happen much easier taking those 8 inches off the blade.

Thanks finlay! I honestly have no idea exactly what I'm doing, I just watch a few videos of ray park at some conventions lol.
     My next course of action will be trying to combine by forward motion rotation with my horizontal motion (behind the back) into one fluid, continuous motion. Once I have that down I want to figure how to do that same sequence in the opposite direction, and then figure out how to switch those direction and change them into two sets of sequences into a consistent, constant form.

Thanks infinit and plane control means balance right ? That's definitely one of the biggest challenges with the double sided, keeping your balance under control.

You're welcome. Plane control means that if you're spinning the saber from side to side of your body, keep it side to side. If you're spinning it from front to back of your body, then keep it between that. These are planes

The video below, my saber moves in front or behind my body staying at one plane. You can switch planes but we typically keep it between one plane so it looks good which is what we can plane control

and to piggy back on Infinit, Here's a plane control drill that I do with staff, and can adapt to sword as well

Finally got a day off after 6 days of work, so thought it'd be a good time to practice. I've been trying to work on plane control you guys mentioned, as much as I can grasp anyway lol
