Here's Tythos Ridge Saber Academy's tutorial for the plum blossom flourish. People often struggle with this technique. Here we try to break it down and simplify it... enjoy!

TRSA Plum Blossom Tutorial:
"This challenge you will not overcome. Your lightsaber is nothing against the power of the dark side."
"That's why I always carry two."

It's a really fun spin once you learn it, and it's also a key into connecting a lot of your flourishing.

Thanks for doing this video. Can't wait to try it out and get the hang of it.
When you ask for trouble, you should not be surprised when it finds you.

I tried a couple of other tutorials on this spin and while they were perfectly clear, I'm a real slow learner. However, I think your tutorial might be the breakthrough I need!
Thank you, on to practising (and back to hitting myself in the back of the head!)

Hello Master Lucien Kane, Everyone,

I have finally reached the point in my Saber ownership where I have to start using it as I had been protective of it before.
I have learnt some Soresu Orbits and basic blocks and strikes. I decided I wanted to learn the Obi-Ani, and after watching your tutorial and a few from other sources I finally began to get the hang of it. The strange thing is though, I am right handed yet I can perform the flourish better with my left hand! Is this a common phenomenon or is it just me?

kind regards and thanks for the video,

For Tyeth

I'm exactly the same. I can do it right handed, but it seems to flow better with the left. Strange.

Hi Darth Nelo Angelo,

Thanks for letting me know it's not just me. I guess I need to practise, practise, practise with both hands.

kind regards,

No problem. There's loads of tutorial videos on YouTube. I watched as many as I could find. All very similar in technique. I found doing it slowly then ramping up the speed helped. Muscle memory and all that..

Soon you'll be doing like the best of them.. B)

Hi Darth Nelo Angelo,

Thanks for the encouragement, I have already blistered my hands practising and I have a few YT channels bookmarked for the tutorials. (I still look like a preying mantis waving a glowing stick though ) :lol:

Thanks again,

For Tyeth

I fear that The Plum Blossom will be forever beyond my limited dexterity. But I don't even have my saber to practice with yet, and I need to practice, and master more basic techniques first, so maybe I'm selling myself short.
I am chaos in order's guise.

Thanks! The wind makes it hard to hear you at times but I've always wondering how they swing the saber like that in the movie!
