O.k., it's not the most macho weapon we learn, to say the least. However, they are part of our system.

Has anyone done any work with fans? I'll start on them after I get my 3rd degree (~3 more yrs).

We also will learn double short sword durring that same level, so it kind of off sets the fans.

I don't work with the fans but I do know that they are a very popular Wushu weapon and the forms done with them are excellent.

The double short sword are a wing chun weapon also, do you study Wing Chun?

Actually, no.

I study Kuk Sool Won (Korean). But I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it migrated over from a Wing Chung influence.

You may not think of them as particularly masculine but I think they look very interesting. And if you need to attain that rank to start working with them there must be a difficulty factor.

Fans are good for grabbing weapons, then you can open up on your opponent with your bare hands.

I think the reason behind them being reserved for after 3rd degree is that you must have obtained enough ambidextrous (sp?) skills before starting. We train in a number of other weapons leading up to it.

Yes, there are extremely interesting to watch. Very deceptive as to their potency.

Don't hold you breath. I have to wait another 2 1/2 yrs before I'm allowed to begin testing for third degree.

I will let you know, however.
