Shuang Gou (Chinese Hook Swords) - Chinese Martial Arts Weapon
Shuang Gou is a hooked sword used in Chinese martial arts such as Kung Fu. This weapon could clinch an opponent's weapon with its hook, cut with its long blade, stab with its pointed end, etc. In modern days, hook swords are used mainly for demonstrations given the weapon's unique look and the ability to link & swing the two swords during routines (see video below).
For other traditional Chinese martial arts weapons, please visit the main Martial Arts Weapons section.
