The Chaw or Chinese sai is a unique San Soo weapon well suited to the movements of the style.
We teach all the classical kung fu weapons including staff, sword, kwando, daos or sabers sometimes called kung fu knives, butterfly knives and hook swords, as well as knife fighting, and knife and gun disarms.
While not a Chinese kung fu weapon, the double stick style of Phillipino escrima lends itself easily to the motion and flow of San Soo. Master Dinsmore studied under world famous Escrimador Rene Babao.
While there is vigorous debate about which sword fighting style is superior-samurai, jian, dao, saber, medieval or rapier, there is little disagreement that the Japanese Katana is the finest sword ever created. For that reason we teach basic combat applications of the katana. Master Dinsmore studied with Iaidoka Sensei Tanaka.
