Yang Style Fan
18 Forms

The Chinese have a saying regarding weapons;   "The shorter it is – the more dangerous.  The more ordinary looking – the deadlier it is."  


The fan may conjure up images of romance and grace, but what many people are unaware of, is the history of the versatile fan as a lethal martial weapon.

The innocent looking fan could be hidden in a sleeve and carried closed to conceal daggers or darts and opened to hide one's movements. "Fighting Fans" had ribs made of honed metal and carried folded, it was recognised as a weapon. Even when opened the fan could still appear harmless; however, in the hands of an expert, a fan  could  become suddenly lethal.

All movements within this form are practical, useful techniques for self-healing and self-defense..
