The Chainwhip
Chainwhip Techniques
Swinging techniques are the primary attack
methods with this weapon, however the
chainwhip may also be used for stabbing
techniques, similar to how a rope dart may be
employed to strike forward.

The chainwhip is also useful in blocking,
deflecting and trapping.

One of the great strengths of the chainwhip  
as an offensive weapon is they are not easy to
block. That inherent property also makes it a
difficult weapon to handle. In order to change
the direction of the weapons momentum, the
user must be able to stop and reverse the
direction of the swing in a manner that does
not cause self-injury.

The weight of this weapon can vary.
Contemporary wushu style, employs incredibly
fast techniques, which necessitates the
weapon to be exceedingly light. These light
weapons do not have great strength and can
quite easily be broken.

Traditional style chainwhips are made of
thicker steel, and are thus much heavier than
their wushu counter-parts. They are far more
robust, and subsequently much more
dangerous to use.
The Chainwhip is categorized as one of the
"flexible" type weapons. Others in this category
include: Rope Dart, Meteor Hammers,
Three-Sectional Staff and Two-Sectional Staff.
Those who have attempted to utilize this type of
weapon, will certainly agree that they are
among the most difficult weapons to handle.
Their difficulty, as well as their strength, arises
from their flexible nature.

The Chainwhip family of weapons are
sub-divided into the number of sections linked
together. Common varieties include three, five,
seven, nine, ten or twelve steel bars chained
together, with a wood or metal handle and a
sharp dart tip head.

Since the Chainwhip is composed of short
linked sections, it is an easily concealable
weapon, that may be quickly unleashed with
deadly force.

The rings on this chainwhip are made of very thin
gauge wire, so the rings deform in shape over time
and over use. For the light weight chainwhips, the
rings can't be too thick, so for thin rings, they need
to be made of softer metal so that they won't snap
or break, but the rings on this chainwhip are a bit
too thin.
This is a relatively lightweight chainwhip, the rings
are of good thickness, the sections though seem a
bit weak where the rings attach, and will likely break
at that point.
This is a really lightweight chainwhip, made solely
for wushu. The sections are very thin, the rings are
of very thin gauge wire, so not very strong at all,
certainly not made for combat, but perfect for flashy
techniques, or for double chainwhip wushu routines.
This is a low quality traditional chainwhip. Very
crude, very heavy, and just too long for an average
sized person.
This is a high quality traditional chainwhip. Notice that
the sections are flattened where the rings attach, this
makes it more dangerous when wrapping around an
opponent's neck or limbs. This has good dimensions
for both combat as well as for flashy techniques, it
just requires more muscle and courage to use for the
flashy techniques.
