The Bamboo Tai Chi Fan is a common sight in China and, especially on a hot day, you’ll see people with them everywhere. Chinese Kung Fu and Tai Chi has weapons that started of as everyday items and got slowly developed into training weapons. The fan is no exception and nowadays people across the world use these simple items to practice their chosen arts with.
Bamboo is a common building material in China partly due to it’s abundance but also because of it strength to weight ratio. It’s equal to steel. This Bamboo Tai Chi Fan has ribs that are made entirely of bamboo with the end ribs being round to fit well with your hand and make it comfortable to hold. The material fixed to the ribs is a nylon / polyester. When closed it can make a hard baton like implement and open a perfect fan. It also comes with a silk style satin case to hold it in.
The nylon material is decorated with a green Chinese dragon riding the clouds with some Chinese calligraphy. The fan is great for all Tai Chi practice but will also suit all styles of Chinese Kung Fu that use them.
“Those looking for a natural material for the fan will be sorely disappointed, they all come with a nylon / polyester covering. They are lightweight which is great for training, but many try the Red Tai Chi Fan if you want it to be a bit heavier.”

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
