Traditional weapons of Wing Chun consist of:
Butterfly Swords / Baat Cham Dao:
Baat Cham Do / Butterfly Swords Form:
6 1/2 Point Dragon Pole Form / Luk Dim Boon Kwun:
Luk Dim Boon Kwun / 6 1/2 Point Dragon Pole Form:
The Wing Chun Single Fighting Cane Form & The Wing Chun Double Fighting Cane Form:
- Since Butterfly Swords and the Dragon Cane are antiquated weapons which are no longer legal or practical to carry around with one, and sense I am teaching “PROGRESSIVE” Wing Chun, I practice two weapon forms which use Martial Arts Fighting Canes that are made of VERY SOLID, HEAVY STEEL, but are still PERFECTLY LEGAL to carry around on one’s hips for use as “walking canes.”
- Both of these Wing Chun Fighting Cane Forms are in perfect keeping with the close-range attack principles of traditional Wing Chun and therefore seem to be a much more logical fit than the SIXTEEN FOOT, “6 1/2 Point Dragon Pole” (Luk Dim Boon Kwun).
[Ideal Fighting Canes]
- Believe it or not, the very best fighting canes one can possibly buy do not come from a martial arts store of any kind. The best fighting cane is actually the “Nova Bariatric Aluminum Cane with Strap in Black” from Walgreen’s pharmacy [CLICK HERE TO SEE].
- I recommend using electrical tape to create a ball-shaped “holding position.” During some sets you will hold the cane below the “holding position,” in other sets you will hold the “ball” at the “holding position,” and in sets such as those which require flipping and rotating the canes in your hands you will need to hold the cane immediately above the ball-shaped “holding position.” This brings up an important point: The ball-shaped “holding position” needs to be placed on the cane such that you can balance the cane on one finger right above the ball-shaped “holding position.”
