Do not attempt the exercise shown here, either as it was poorly drawn or as it was executed. Martial artists of any discipline should try to keep their feet attached!

This is the most basic of repetitive exercises, usually done in a group while following the teacher. As the very long weapons are drawn up and down, left and right, and spun through the air, you need a lot of room to practice them. Footwork and basic strikes are also part of usual group practice at the start and end of a lesson.
