Master one of the most exciting and versatile weapons found in kung fu.
Jin Hong Yan, first emperor of the Sung dynasty in China, is credited with inventing the sawm jeet gwun (three-sectional staff). It gave a warrior the versatility to fight at close and longer ranges, to choose a strategy reliant on strength or speed, to aid in executing a submission hold, or to deliver a deathblow.
In Advanced Three Sectional Staff: Kung Fu Weapon of Self-Defense, kung fu luminary Eric Lee leads you through the techniques that will allow you to master a weapon that few can handle effectively. Photographs and detailed captions cover basic to advanced maneuvers, including blocks, stances, spins, figure eights and sparring scenarios against a variety of weapons.
When coupled with the special flowing qualities of kung fu, the practitioner can blend so well with his three-sectional staff that the two appear as one.
