Foshan Wing Chun Double Swords

The double swords (Yee Jee Dao) are certainly unfamiliar to most Wing Chun practitioners outside Foshan, China. According to Great Grandmaster Yui Kil, the double swords are Wing Chun traditional weapons dating back to its originators Ng Mui and Yim Wing Chun.

It was very surprising to acknowledge that the conventional Wing Chun Butterfly Knives (Baart Jaarm Dao) was a later integration into the Wing Chun system. Although the butterfly knives are distinctly different to the double swords, the Master Wai-Po Tang  executing downward neck sliceprinciples and theories that underpin attack and defensive techniques are, to a great extent very similar.

The accuracy of Wing Chun history has always been ambiguous, so the importance of dates is seen to be less relevant than its forms and applications.

The double swords form contains very effective and simple strokes and blocks, but also includes kicking and double-cuts. Generally, the movements are very small especially with blocking or parrying opponent's attacks. Hence, highly skilled in grips and wrist strength-agility is paramount. This will increase the ability to first cut/stab.

There are also long range strokes (thrust, slice), which focuses on clean-cuts through the target. The blocks are very similar to those of Tan Sau, Bong Sau, Huen Sau. However, position of swords is not good enough without the understanding of tactical combat approaches.

One of the most common mistakes of swordplay is to use the swords tactically as though they were hand-strikes or hand-blocks. The tactical approach of swords rely heavily on making fast first-contact, the effects of first-contact can result in fatality. Whereas, quick fast first contact of unarmed movements will often result in minute impact force, and at best a knockout, and rarely fatality.

Therefore, the training methodologies and tactical approaches should have very fundamental differences. It is without a doubt that notions or principles of unarmed combat can be used as analogies for sword-combat. But the crucial differences must be realised at the infancy stage of learning.

Metal practice swords

Until now, the double swords have been a secret of Foshan Wing Chun. Hopefully, in the near future members of the M.A.I. will produce many excellent swordsmen and pole-fighters. The tradition of double swords will elevate to higher level of aesthetic swordplay as well as combat-effective swordsmanship.
