Traditionally, Chinese Tiger Fork were reportedly used for hunting big cats in southern China. There are other theories that they may have been used for harvesting crops, similar to a pitch fork in the west. However this doesn’t sound a cool.
Used now mainly by the Southern Chinese Kung Fu styles such as Hung Gar and Lau Gar, to name a few, you will also see these in The Shaolin Temple and modern Wushu. The Chinese Tiger Fork is quite a heavy weight, which makes it perfect for training and building strength. The head is made form steel and the shaft from Wood. At the joint is a fake horsehair, which is traditionally supposed to stop the blood running down the shaft and making it sticky.
The weapon comes with it’s own case so you can carry it around easily and once you have one of these you should never need to buy another one. It’s a solid chucky weapon that will last a lifetime.
“When in it’s case it looks a bit like a bedpan, expect some comments if you’re out carrying it. If you’re taking it by car, make sure it fits in first before you buy it. .”

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:
