Luk Dim Boon Gwan (六點半棍)

Luk Dim Boon Gwan, or six (6) and a half point pole.

 

It is so named as there are six (6) techniques with the last movement being classed as a half technique. The concepts behind the pole more closely mirror the ideas behind the empty hands, than the next form the Baat Jaam Do or eight slash knives.

Actually many movements are modelled originally from the spear and are named Cheung, example Fong Lung Cheung, the thrusting movement involved in the pole.

The concept of the pole is very similar to fighting with one hand, where the Lat Sau Jik Jung is still applied.

There are various drills that are applied prior to learning the pole with the most notable being the Che Gwan Kuen or pull apart pole punches.
