Long Pole - Wing Tsun Traditional - Teak Wood 9'

This is the official Wing Tsun traditional rat-tail long pole made of teak wood.

This pole is well suited for training because of its weight. However, the staff can splinter if struck too hard upon the ground. Train with care.

Length: 9
Weight: 5 lbs
Approximate diameter: 1.5" bottom pole and 1" top pole.

Reminder:
Wood is not indestructible. Poles will always break if hit hard enough.

Smash Training:
"Smash Training" is (basically speaking) where you are slamming the tip of the pole into the ground as hard as you can - usually in an attempt to hit something (walnuts, coins, chalk, etc) It is a form of training accuracy and power that some lineages perform. Of course, such training quite often breaks poles. We test all of our poles for smash training to see how easily they break. In order for us to recommend a pole for smash training we have determined that it needs to be very strong (have a high Janka rating usually), but still with some flexibility so it does not snap, and it needs to be a little thicker than the typical pole. That extra thickness makes a huge difference. For the test we simply smash the pole 20 times into the ground with as much force as possible - rotating it slightly with each hit so any structural weakness are tested...
Suitability: This pole is a normal thickness, so it is not thick enough (we recommend 1/2 inch thicker poles all the way around) for this training. It is okay for form work, partner pole work, work with swords, exercises, etc. We found these teak poles to be the most flexible of the woods currently offered. So much so that we were often afraid that they would break. However, they did not, so that is nice - they are good overall poles.

Slightly Warped July 29, 2013
Reviewer: Ryan Ward from Shepherdsville, KY United States  
This is a great pole; however, I have ordered 4 of these already and ALL of them have arrived to me slightly warped. To correct this, I had to drill holes in the thick end and hang them vertically. This process takes an inordinate amount of time. If you want a good pole for practice, this is it. If you want a high quality pole go for the chow wood or Quan Din.

Long Pole - Wing Tsun Traditional - Teak Wood 9' January 9, 2013
Reviewer: Mark Moore from Morinville, AB Canada  
Bought it for a friend of mine.  He likes it a lot.  The price seemed right for this good quality pole.

For the ordering.  It was quick and fast with precision like the forms are in, Wing Chun.  Cause if you blink, you might miss it and get hit with a whack to the head or wherever.  So stay focused.

Within about a week received the goods.  Yes I would buy here again for other things in the art I am looking for from, www.everythingwingchun.com

Thank you.
