The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Xingyiquan Qiang (Spear)

I previously made a post on The King of Chinese Weapons, the spear. 


A friend of mine is a practitioner of Xingyi Qiang.  He recently purchased a customized qiang (spear) from Brendan Lai Kung Fu Supplies.

Photo 1 to photo 3 showed how the spear was being manufactured.









The spear weighs about 3 pounds and about 88 inch long. There is no chance that it will not be employed for any fishing or hunting exploration.

If you're interested in getting "a customized qiang" or any other unique training weapons, please contact Brendan Lai Kung Fu Supply.,

The availability of certain customized items are greatly depended  on the supply  of available items imported from China.  The quality of the customized item determines the price. 



Their address is: 3581 Mission St., San Francisco, CA 94110 U.S.A
They are very nice people.
