Spear Techniques 2 (기창)

Posted in Martial Arts, Spear, video by 노강호 on May 7, 2012

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.

When the pennant is attached the spear is called a ‘ki-ch’ang’ (기창) which basically means ‘flag spear.’

 For the other parts of the form see:
