Ancient Art of Chinese Long Straight Sword

ByJack Chen

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Chinese Straight Sword, or Jian, is perhaps the weapon that represents Chinese swordsmanship the most. Rarely seen nowadays in Chinese martial arts is the practice of a 2-handed Long Straight Sword. In this book, I've translated the Straight Sword chapter in 武備志 (Wu Bei Zhi), a 400 years old Chinese military manual, as well as offer my own interpretation. I hope my work will help you in practicing this art, as well as preserve and promote it for further generations to appreciate. Jack Chen
