TriviaEdit

  • Guandao is a type of Chinese pole weapon that is used in some forms of Chinese martial arts and is used quite frequently in the part of contemporary Wushu derived from the Shaolin or Wudangquan form of martial arts in modern times. In Chinese, it is properly called a yanyuedao (偃月刀; lit. "reclining moon blade").
    • According to legend, the guandao was invented by the famous general Guan Yu during the early 3rd century AD, hence the name. It is said that he specified its form and size to be made by a smithy, and was uniquely able to wield such an imposing weapon due to his large stature and legendary strength.
