I like that one. Personally I specialize in use of the bo staff but I've trained extensively with a kwan dao. People, a thirty pound kwan dao..beleive it..those things are damn heavy when you first start. I've seen utterly massive weapons of this nature but it is true that the heavy ones are mostly used for conditioning but I've used some pretty absurd ones too. Also, a previous post saying something along the lines of "110 pound kwan dao, impossible and useless" there are some people out there who make me wonder just how impossible it really is. I mean consider that whenever this legend would have taken place, there were some people who had done ACTUAL training all their lives, for instance: say you're so cherished and invincible master would be average by their standards. Don't dismiss things so quickly now, legends are typically elaborations of truth. Happy happy joy joy
