Northern Shaolin 2 Man Long Shaft
Gun ~ Long Shaft
The Shaolin Staff or Long Shaft is considered the "Grandfather Of Weapons" and
usually comes to the top of your head or slightly higher. Made of
rattan, the Staff is firm but still flexible when used. The Chinese
name for the Staff is
Gun and literally translated to Long Rod. The Staff is one of the
oldest and most convienent weapons because long pieces of wood could be
found anywhere. It uses sweeping, striking, thrusting and spinning
techniques and by sliding the Staff through one hand to use the other
brings the Staff alive.
This form was created by Grandmaster Mark Gates. It uses the
techniques of the staff combined with the feeling and sensitivity of Tai
Chi Spear to teach its' use.
