Rigid or Solid Chinese Broadswords are quite hard to find these days, especially ones with a bit of weight. For those wanting something substantial to train rather than a lightweight flexible blade this Aluminium Chinese Broadsword is a very good option. In fact it is one of the only solid Chinese broadswords on the market these days. Favoured by many traditional kung fu styles, the weight will give you a good workout and really help you with balance, coordination and strength.
Cast into a single piece of a aluminium this Chinese Broadsword is the perfect practice sword and gets you used to training with metal. It is a standard length of most Chinese Broadswords and has a faux leather bound handle for good grip. Although these can vary so check the photos on this page. Because this Aluminium Chinese Broadsword in rigid it can be used for Tai Chi Sticking sword practice and help you get used to the feel of the sword. However because Aluminium is a soft metal they can self sharpen over time so watch out for that and dull it if needs be.
The weight although not to heavy gives your arm a good workout and builds up strength and power. Something that is hard to find with Broadswords on the market these days. Enjoy your training
