Further, General Qi identified the role of unarmed training by stipulating three outcomes.
The first was Conditioning of the soldiers' body wherein the observation was made that "This craft does not really concern itself with military weapons, but acquiring excess strength is also something which those in the military field ought to practice".
That said, General Qi went on to acknowledge that the relationship between the use of weapons and those skills of unarmed training ought not be discounted.
Lastly, a strong spirit through the cultivation of self-confidence is understood from the General's advocacy for matching his soldiers against one another. As stated towards the end of his introduction, "If you are afraid of your opponent then your skill is still shallow.
If you are good at contests it must be that the art is refined. Dang Pa The dang pa is a triple bladed spear, sometimes called a trident. It is between seven feet, six inches and eighteen feet long and has either an iron or wooden tip. The dang pa was a fundamental defensive weapon that was sometimes used to launch fire at enemy troops.
Nang Sun The nang sun is a fifteen foot long spear made of either bamboo or iron. It has nine to eleven branches extending out from the main shaft, each studded with small metal hooks.
This deadly weapon was invented by Chuk Kye-kwang during the war with Japan. Ssang Soo Do The ssang so do is a six foot five inch long sword from Japan. It is so powerful, that it can cut or break another sword upon striking it. Japanese gunmen also used this sword as a sidearm for close range combat.
The ssang so do is also known as the jang do, yong gum or pyung gum. Ye Do The ye do is a short sword, four feet four inches in length, that is also known as a dan do. It was used for training soldiers in swordsmanship. Wae Gum Japanese swordsmanship was clearly recognized as superior to that of the sword techniques of China or Chosun in the 16th century, so King Sukjong ordered Kim Che-gun to acquire the techniques and text books of the Japanese.
Kyo Jun Kyo jun is a Japanese method of practicing swordsmanship with a training partner. In the original Japanese text book, techniques were documented with a double bladed sword, but Chosun soldiers practiced with the single bladed sword to prevent injury. The je dok gum was characterized by spinning movements, which were used to break free when a soldier was encircled on the battlefield.
Bon Kuk Gum The bon kuk gum is a native Chosun sword style as proven by its mention in the legend of Hwang-chang, a Shilla Hwarang warrior. There is evidence that both Japan and China adapted some of the techniques of the bon kuk gum.
Ssang Gum The ssang gum are single-bladed twin swords of any length most commonly short swords, like the yo do. The original swords were two feet, ten inches long, but in later years, there was not a specific type of sword prescribed for practice.
Wol Do The wol do is a nine foot long crescent sword. Its blade is moon shaped, with a small blade projecting below the main blade.
The smaller blade has a feather tied to it. Although a fearsome looking weapon, it was used primarily for practice among infantry soldiers, having been considered too weak for use in battle.
Hyup Do The hyup do is a spear sword with a three foot long handle.
It resembles the wol do but with a single, thinner blade. It was rarely used in battle, because it was considered, like the wol do, to be too weak. Deung Pae The deung pae is the sword and shield art. The sword, used for attacking, was primarily a short sword, such as the yo do. The shield was three feet seven inches in diameter and was most commonly made of woven wisteria branches in the south or willow branches wrapped in leather in the north.
It was used by the infantry to defend against a variety of weapons including the dart spear and bird gun. Kwon Bup Kwon bup is the only empty handed fighting method of the twenty-four.
It was practiced as both an empty handed self-defense skill and as preparation for learning the more complicated sword arts.
There were both external and internal styles of practice. Kon Bang The kon bang is a seven foot long stick with a two inch wide duck bill shaped blade at the end.
It was used to stab like a spear or strike like a stick enemies and was especially effective against the deung pae.
