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!
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.
Shipping Costs on 1-4 poles: In 2018 UPS/FedEx changed their rates for items over 96 and 108 inches. Over 96 inches and the package now incurs a max-weight charge + $80 over-length + 19 handling surcharge. A pole that was $40 to ship now cost about $240. Over 108 inches and UPS adds a $500 penalty fee as well. Currently, if you buy 1 pole or 4 poles the cost is a flat $240 in the US (Outside the US it is similar). Contact us to arrange buying multiple poles, or to pick up your poles up from the Ohio Warehouse.
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.]
