The Kung Fu Pudao has a slightly gruesome purpose, it is widely believed to cut at the legs of horses in battlefields. Because of this, it is also known as the horse cutting knife. It is one of the Chinese Kung Fu long weapons and is now used by many styles in China including Wushu, Shaolin Temple Kung Fu and many more.
The blade is similar to that of a Chinese broadsword although on this one it isn’t quite the same, it’s slightly shorter. The blade is made from a flexible sprung steel and can bend 180 degrees. This makes a great whipping sound when thrusted out hard. Perfect for making forms more dramatic. Attached to this is a wooden staff with a metal loop on the other end. Apparently for disarming swords.
A lightweight, long weapon with fantastic forms that look great and are fun to do. Happy training.
“This is not a small weapon, it’s a bit of a slog getting it around the place. The forms are great and have some fantastic moves to learn. Have fun with this.”

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:
