By cosmic coincidence an eyebrow height hickory staff with an octagonal cross section (made by Carmelo Grajales of BujinkanWeapons.com) arrived on the same day as two ProChux (made by Lee Barden of ProChux.com), which are nunchakus with an octagonal cross section. Photos to follow
At the esteemed Plum Publications website if one clicks Books and then Writings one winds up at
among the books is #KH014 The Hidden Metal of T’ai-Chi Ch’üan by Peter Frohlick.
There’s a fine fellow named Péter Fröhlich of Hungary who is a noted sabre coach and was British Olympic coach in 1992, 1996 and 2000. He coached many members of the Hungarian team at Under-20 and senior level in 1999-2001. Fröhlich currently lives and works in Truro (in Cornwall in England), leading Truro Fencing Club’s performance program. He coaches fulltime at the club. Does anyone know if these are two different people? If so, is Peter Frohlick alive and well and in range of an email?

Perhaps agreeing the treaty terms the Emperor suggested is a wise idea. Video coming
單個硬盤的俱樂部 – literally ‘single hard club’; more commonly and more tersely known as 錘 (chui) = mace.
These are 36 inches long so intermediate between the shinai and half-staff.
The maces are quite heavy (solid steel rectangular tapered ‘blade’) and take some skill to move gracefully and effectively.
