Wish I could answer your questions. Nobody on this board is much of a shun fan apparently. Have you seen the shun di clips as played by akira kid? If not, maybe you can find some pointers in those. You can download the clips from www.tbzone.co.kr/vf4/ or ftp://22.214.171.124 (go to the New TBZone movies directory) ... they're also available in the media section www.feixaq.com Good luck learning the ancient reamer.
