Gow Jit Gwun

This is the name of the long pole in Chu Gar Kuen, it does not have any forms just techniques aimed at breaking joints and disabling an opponent.

The training to develop the correct power is difficult to do correctly, but simple in concepts. Once the power has been developed it is refined utilising the wooden dummy, and the emphasis changes from power to subtlety, using sticking, lifting, pressing and thrusting as keywords to develop the correct sensitivity.

This training along with the power development can take many months to get to a high level, but with consistent training it is achievable by everyone.
