As an integral part of Pa Kua, the study of swords is critical to martial art development.
Coordination, precision, and discipline are some benefits of studying the art of combat with ancient weapons.
In ancient times, Chinese people developed, out of necessity, the art of combat with these weapons, using common ordinary items.
For example, the stick that accompanied a traveler on his journey turned into a weapon and its use eventually evolved into an art.
Other ancient weapons are actual weapons of war.
Their study is accompanied by a study of the warrior’s discipline, which helps us today in our daily battles of life.
The discipline of mind and body acquired during the study of any of these weapons from the past is an invaluable tool for us today.
Some ancient weapons taught in Pa Kua are a variety of Swords, Jian, Knives, and Night Stick.
