Vol-5 - Kwan Dao is probably the most interesting of all the Shaolin Weapons with its large heavy blade make
it perfect for any large person to practise and gain skill with. Lots of twirling and jumping but the Kwan Dao
is meant to blast thru attacks and strike others. The Japanese equivalent to the Kwan Dao was the naginata and
it was used to take down a horses as they attacked in battle.
The back edge of the Kwan Dao has a notch in it meant to catch a flying blade. The other end of the 6' Halbred
has a counter weight on it used to counter balance the weapon and as well could be used to stab someone.
