Jian training Re: online academy
Could you advise any tips on any, if there are any, differences I should make in training with my Han Jian? I really like the sword, and have, as I mentioned before, adapted a lot already. However, I don't want to dedicate a great deal of time to training only to find myself having practiced the wrong way. I haven't found much out there by way of resources for training with this type of jian specifically. The blog post is a rare and very helpful one.

Jian training Re: online academy
Along the same lines would it be possible to address the differences (if any) in training with the Han Dynasty style (with the two-handed grip and thicker pommel) vs more modern style jians? I have a number of traditional practice jians, but my high carbon Han sword has obvious differences that I have adapted to in my training.

Jian training Re: online academy
What kind of structure would be recommended for gaining proficiency with the jian? I have gone through the Long Hua Jian form videos and practice it regularly, as well as the other available jian videos. However, I am wondering, since I am also working on/with the other empty hand trainings (daily Zhan Zhuang, taiji 13, quan gong xuan 1&2), how much time, or in what kind of daily order one should dedicate to the various pieces of sword work?

Zhan Zhuang - Standing Like a Post
In the Zhan Zhuang video on the online academy, you note that it should be done in the mornings. If one doesn't have time to get it in before work in the morning, is it still worth it to do Zhan Zhuang in the afternoon? Or would that be somehow counterproductive. I would think doing it at all would be better than skipping completely, but my current schedule only leaves one or two mornings a week with enough time before noon.
