HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF
TAIJI TRAVELING DRAGON SPEAR
Grandmaster Wong demonstrated the Taiji Traveling Dragon Spear
The Taiji spear is like the Shaolin spear. There are two main types of spears -- the metal spears which were used on horseback fighting, and the flower spear which is now used in demonstration on foot.
As the flower spear is a light, long weapon, two hands held at the tip of the spear-shaft is used, and the main hand slices forward along the spear-shaft to the supportive hand for piercing.
Piercing is the most deadly technique of the spear. Anyone who uses a weapon must know how to defend against or counter a middle-level pierce. Another important technique of the spear is circling.
The Taiji Traveling Dragon Spear was composed by me. In its composition, I researched into many sources. The set must include all important spear techniques, and is not too long for comfort.
