Awesome work. btw is the kind of sword he's using called a Jian? I've seen something like it on tv and in weapons exhibits, that's why i ask ;)
Reply
:iconfong-saiyuk:
fong-saiyuk Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
Thanks! yeah, jian is what they call most types of double-edged straight swords (and then dao for single edged swords or knives)

AceOfKeys72 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh wow. I also noticed some Dao and Jian have a kind of tassel at the hilt that is sometimes held with the opposite hand. Is that design common in old weapons or is it more recent? ;)
Reply
:iconfong-saiyuk:
fong-saiyuk Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
yeah, i think the tassels used to be used as lanyards that the user would put their wrist through so that they wouldn't lose their sword in battle, then over time it just evolved into a decorative thing. so it's more recent i guess.

AceOfKeys72 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
that would make sense. I knew there was a purpose for the tassels other than decoration. It is a lot more practical if I should say so myself. Btw have you any exp with Chinese swordplay. i've seen it's become a form of exercise in certain areas where I live, like Tai Chi ;)

:iconfong-saiyuk:
fong-saiyuk Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
yeah, those kinds of thing usually start out like that. yeah, tai chi is pretty popular, but when i practice kung fu i use a dao cuz i havent learned the jian forms yet.

AceOfKeys72 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
hmm? Can't you substitute a jian in the dao exercises and vice versa? or is there a policy to it, because a side from the number of edges, isn't the dao and jian similar? Or is there a difference of practicality, size, form and use. Also there is a weapons form of kung fu? I suppose because of society and tv I assumed that kung fu was solely a bare hands art ;)

:iconfong-saiyuk:
fong-saiyuk Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
um, usually no, but it would probably depend on the style. some dao forms have the practitioner use their other arm to support the blunt end of the sword when blocking or doing upward slashes, so you couldn't really do something like that w/ a double-edged weapon without cutting your left arm off... also, the movements themselves can be different between the dao and jian, simply because the jian is thinner and double-edged so you use more stabbing and quick slashes, whereas the dao is heavier and single-edged and is almost all slashing and no stabbing moves.

yeah, kung fu has hundreds of different schools and styles, and most schools have weapon forms. there are a lot of weapons too, like swords, staffs,spears, chain whips, meteor hammers, knives, cudgels, even wooden benches. i guess in movies most action would be hand-to-hand, but yeah, kung fu has a lot of weapons too. also, most modern kung fu styles are derived from either shaolin or wudang back in ancient times, both of which have extensive use of weapons.
