Traveling Dragon Thirteen-Technique Spear

Grandmaster Wong demonstrating a spear pattern called “Traveling Dragon Rolls Water” from the Traveling Dragon Thirteen-Technique Spear Set

The spear was the most favorite weapon of army generals in Chinese martial history. As it is both light and long, it has the rare combined advantages of both speed and distance. The “shoot” of the spear, taking advantages of both speed and distance, is very deadly, and was considered by kungfu masters as technically the most difficult weapon attack to counter. Hence, in the past no one could be considered proficient in his weapon, regardless of what weapon it was, until he could use it to counter a “spear-shoot”.

The “Traveling Dragon Thirteen-Technique Spear” presented here in picture series is a combination of the “Traveling Dragon Spear” from Uncle Righteousness lineage, and of “Thirteen-Technique Spear” from the Choe Family Wing Choon lineage. The “Traveling Dragon Spear” is so-called because its movements resemble those of a traveling dragon. The “Thirteen-Technique Spear” is so-called because it is built upon thirteen main techniques.

The names of the patterns in Chinese pronunciation and Chinese characters are given below.
