The Ultimate Qwan Din Long Pole (Luk Dim Boon Quan)

EWC Note: Please keep in mind the age of the wood can be 100 years+. A few poles have small cosmetic imperfections - but these are not a need for concern - your pole will be strong. If your pole snaps due to internal rot or some sort of defect we will replace it or refund your money. That said - please test your pole for any issues within 48 hours of receiving it - after that, they are not warranted.

The tip is 1" Base varies from 1 1/4 inch to 1 3/4 inch. As the poles are hand made from limited wood sources the length does vary.

These poles come from Qwan Dim (Quan Dim) that was used on an old boat. The wood is can be 100 years old! These are one-of-a-kind poles!

For real Wing Chun practitioners, this is a dream pole! You should order this pole immediately if you want one, they are very rare and never last long once in stock! On average, less than 20 a year are available.

Qwan Dim (Quan Dim) is a heavy dense wood that is commonly used in making oars, like the long oars in the sampan, and it can be put into water permanently and will not rot. They are also heavy and flexible (imagine the long oars rowing against water constantly).

According to Wing Chun legends, the martial art was partially updated during the time its practitioners were part of the Red Boat Operas. This is the period of time in which the long pole was added as a weapon into the Wing Chun system. Considering these boats used long poles made from Qwan Dim to help with their movement and navigation, we believe this is the wood of the original Wing Chun Lum Dim Boon Kwan (Six and a Half Point Pole, Dragon Pole, or Long pole).

This pole is a little under 104 inches (2.64 m) and is slightly tapered. Technically, the poles should be longer than this - up to 15 feet according to Yip Man - but due to the scarcity of the wood and current UPS, FedEx, DHL, and USPS shipping regulations, we can only make and ship foot poles that are this length.

When we first starting carrying these poles, we smashed them repeatedly on concrete floors to verify that they do not break. (We'd never recommend abusing your pole needlessly like we did, especially if you want it to last a long time). Many poles on the market today snap upon impact (especially at these lengths) and can be very dangerous to training partners and yourself. You should never have this problem with your pole.

Poles should be stored vertically (do not lean your pole against a wall or let it lie flat or it could warp).

Qwan Din turns from a medium brown color to a dark color fairly quickly. This is normal and you can see the change happening in the pictures. This effect is quickened by the oils in your hands when you use the pole.

Note on Availability: Qwan Din is a very hard wood to obtain for long poles and currently, there are no good sources of wood available. As soon as the trees grow and mature we'll be able to offer these poles again, but that may take a while! So if the poles are available and you want one order it right away!
