Bagua "Needles" Form
The BlackTaoist crew and Brothers of Wudang provide us with a nice Bagua weapons form. Malcom appears to be using two long shanks, or "Needles".
When Bagua Kung Fu rose to prominence around 1900, it was highly regarded as an art used by bodyguards for the elite.
Note how the coiling and turning movements with a knife in each hand would be very effective against multiple attackers.
All in all, a nicely done form!
