Spear Techniques 2 (기창)
This is the second video of the Korean ‘Flag Spear Form’. The Flag Spear is a 2.7 meter spear with a flat blade, capable of slicing and piercing and to which traditionally, a small flag was attached. This form is cited in the military treatise known as the Mu-ye-do-bo-tong-ji (무예도보통지 – 武藝圖譜通志) which was commissioned in 1790, by King Jeongjo.
