Description

This video shows Daoist monk and martial arts teacher Zhou Xuan Yun using the horse-tail whisk. Originally used by Daoist monks to swat away flies during meditation, and to banish spirits during Daoist rituals, the horse tail whisk slowly evolved as a martial weapon. The horsetail whisk is a versatile weapon. Like a whip, it can strike and wrap around the opponent. Like the sword and saber, it can also strike with the handle. The Wudang martial arts are considered internal martial arts because they focus on whole body movements, redirecting incoming force, and teach cultivation of the body's "Qi" (vital energy).
