Guan Dao

Added 02-Jul-2006


The Guan Dao is the heaviest long range weapon in the Chinese arsenal and this weight, which can get to as much as 100 kilos, is used to move and power the weapon. Momentum is built up in large circular swings and strikes and, if you notice, the weapon never quite stops moving throughout the pattern, the energy of one swing is just converted into another, directions are changed smoothly, seamlessly. It takes a very strong person to wield this weapon properly, which is why a giant Guan Dao often served as a badge of rank for a general in the Chinese Army and it was the weapon of the God of War, Guan Yu. Performed by Master Zhao Rong Fu in Hangzhou.
