    I was working on a double dove axe form until I injured my shoulder. **** things are heavy, none of that hollow stuff in our school! Couple weeks hopefully I will be able to take it back up and finish it. See if I can video it for y'all, you can watch the fat man move!

    THe line of Hung Fut I study has both long double axe and short double axe forms (length of the poles/handles). My sifu said he derived a form combining the two to something in-between with a handle of length a little longer than the short axes, but I have never seen any of the forms nor know any of my classmates that have learned any.

    heavy weapons dont have a lot of forms. they dont have complicated techniques. even if there is a form its mostly flower.

    good point. Heavy long weapons are a variation of the staff.

    fine..turn it this way when you cut..
    "This one is a trident.."
    okay, twirl it a little...
    'This has a crescent shaped blade and a bell shaped one on the other end.."
    "yeah, ok..stab, and..ok, stab."

    Choy lee Fut wasn't the only one designing exotic weapons

    That's the beauty of Jackie Chan. He always used weapons that were handy at the time...I could see him using either one.
