(BTW, how can be Baduanjin be translated?)
(in fact, there are a few more "warm up/breathing/solo" exercises which are not shown here)
"Eight stage (or step) brocade".
"Brocade" as in a high quality piece of cloth.
I believe that Tamura added those exercises to his training at some point after he left Japan (one of the European folks may have more information).
