Longpoles

The Wing Chun long pole (a.k.a. Luk Dim Boon Kwan, the 6 1/2 point pole, or Dragon Pole) is the first weapon learned in Wing Chun. With it, you not only learn to use the weapon itself, but you also learn to develop power generation for more penetrating and devastating punches. These poles are always in-demand because high-quality properly-tapered long poles made from woods that have the correct combination of strength and flexibility are hard to find.

From the more expensive Qwan Din (the original wood of the long pole, taken from 100-year-old boats) to the economic Oak - we continuously seek out and offer you the best woods for your Luk Dim Boon Kwan training. Scroll down to see which ones are currently in stock and grab a couple while they last!

Important Note on Poles/Warranty/Replacements:

Short version: When you get the pole check it out right then and there to make sure it is okay (not warped and strong). If you don't notify us of an issue immediately the pole is non-replaceable and non-refundable. The makers guarantee the poles, not us, but we will help get you a new one ASAP if there is an issue upon arrival. Please scroll to the bottom and read the full statement for more details.

Length update: As of Jan 2018 ALL of the poles we sell have been cut down to 104 inches to avoid UPS's new $500 over-length fees. UPS now charges $500 fee on top of the max shipping charge for poles over-length, so we must be sure all poles are under that length for both UPS and FedEx. UPDATE (Mar 2018): FedEx and UPS just changed their max length to 96 inches and added a new surcharge. This means any long-pole now incurs a max weight + $80 + $19 handling surcharge - looking at the last 10 pole shipped, it basically it costs around $240 to ship a pole now, up from $40 a year ago. We have updated the shipping prices on the poles. It also means your better off buying multiple poles at once. If you want to do so, please email us for a quote.

Important Note on Poles/Warranty/Replacements:

Long Version: All poles are checked for straightness before shipping and shipped in a narrow tube (warped poles will not fit!). They are also stored properly in the warehouse and most are photographed for evidence of straightness. We are very conscious of the need to keep the poles straight. We consider a pole "warped" if an edge of the tip is not in line with the center of the base - so your pole would not arrive warped where the tip is totally out of alignment of the base. What causes poles to warp is typically changes in humidity. For example, we ship from about a 50-60% humidity environment. If you are in 80% humidity then the wood will absorb the moisture in the surrounding air and expand. It if does not expand uniformly then it warps. The same applies if your humidity is 20% and it sheds moisture in your environment. Being the nature of wood, there is absolutely nothing we can do about that... It is just the way things work. We will work with people to replace a warped or damaged pole, but we have to be notified the day you get the pole and with clear photographic evidence. If you wait, then we can't tell if neglect or another factor (like humidity changes) caused the warp. We also ask that you check the pole for strength the day you receive it. Wood can and does break, but in order to determine if a pole is flawed upon arrival or damaged over time in training (including shocking it in the air) or by environmental changes (gets too brittle) you must test it immediately based on the suggested use for that wood type. We cannot replace a pole after 1 week. Lastly, please note that poles are technically guaranteed by the maker, not by us, but we will get you new ones if there is an issue upon arrival.]
