An Excerpt from the Kunwu Sword Manual of Li Lingxia

昆吾劍法十字訣/Kunwu Jian Fa Shi Zi Jue – Kunwu Sword Method’s Ten Character Secret


This sword’s Ten Character Secret Maneuver Methods are very simple & convenient. Support, Wipe, Carry, Tap, Roll, Hook, Hang, Break, Stab, Stand.


Kunwu Sword, passed down from time immemorial, is said to completely rely on & attach the most importance to Ten Characters. Supporting, Wiping, & Carrying. Together with Tapping & Rolling. A cold light is emitted, dazzling to people’s eyes, when moving the sword, overturning both Above & Below. Regarding its Maneuver Methods are boundlessly clever. Hooking, Hanging, Breaking, Stabbing, & Standing. Left & Right attacks appear like lightning. Above, the sword Rolls; in the Middle, the sword Winds; below, the sword Breaks. All have Circling within. To use Supporting & Wiping you have to stop revolving. Regarding Body Method, it must be quick & agile. Diagonal Body & Twisted Steps must take precedence. There is Light & Heavy. There is Long & Short. But Military Tactics on paper alone are empty words. If you study the sword you must get the real transmission, for orally transmitted Heart Teaching naturally results in perfected skill.
