Info about "Shaolin Dan Dao (Single sabre technique) video"
Dan Dao is a single edged weapon. It can vary in length according to the practitioner’s stature but is generally in the region of 90cm long. The blade of the dan dao is quite stiff, unlike some other Chinese single edged swords which can be very flexible. Its origins probably lie in the need for a practical weapon that could be used as a kind of machete should the need arise. Use of the dan dao is characterised by speed and aggression coupled with slashing and whirling movements.
