Here’s a little clip of the beginning of an empty hand sayaw (form) I came up with.
A sayaw or form is a great way to train when you have no partner to practice with.
Many of the benefits found in practicing a sayaw include:
- Practicing gross movements found in your style
- Training proper biomechanics
- Reinforcing technique application
- Low impact training
I find it best when you go at it with a certain intention, whether it’s to find errors in your movement, exploring the way your body moves, or using it to relax.
Whatever it is, make sure you keep that intention throughout the entire form.
