I want to point something out here.
That thing Mulan did is almost a staple in most of the weapon disarms that I know. See in the fifth gif where the dudes hand almost rotates 360 degrees? Well if he had not released the weapon, his options would have been to fall off the roof, or break his wrist.
Go on and rotate your wrist in the same way, I’ll wait. It doesn’t turn that far, does it? Now, the sword is acting like a giant lever attached to the guy’s wrist and Mulan is turning that lever rapidly, essentially accelerating his hand to the point where the wrist and elbow lock. If mulan were more sensitive, she’d have locked his shoulder up too.
Now, he lets go because hanging on means the rest of his body goes with the rotation, or the rotation is fast enough to damage his wrist: this is a principle some of us at my Aikido dojo like to call the Aikido screwdriver. It is also the building block of Hijinage, some variations of Ikkyo and, when the focus is specifically the wrist, kote-gaeshi.
Interesting note: some fans were metal boned or reinforced to be used as weapons. In Japan, they’re called Tessen.
Abandoned Disneyland in Beijing China.
It’s as if you hopped off of your flying elephant and walked straight into an apocalyptic wasteland, surrounded by scrubby grass, empty buildings, and the shell of a Magic Kingdom. This is the ghost of a Disney World-style amusement park in China, abandoned partway through construction, and now a hauntingly beautiful scene of decay.
