Weapons - Sai 釵
Other names: Gen (Chinese), Iron rulers, chabang or tjabang (Indonesia), trisula (India), tekpi (Malaysia)
taught: Hung Gar (Grandmaster Wing Lam); Fukien White Crane (Su
Ying Han); Mei Shan (Yan Xi Zheng). We currently do NOT
teach karate katas for sai. Mounting a sai on a long handle
(like a staff)
produces a weapon known in Europe as a ranseur. Among the variations are the partisan and the spetum.
Recommendations: a good early weapon. Cost: varies from $16 to $50 per pair.
