The staff, (Gun in Chinese), is literally a rod or stick. It is one of the four major weapons in Chinese martial arts. Chinese folklore calls the staff, “The Grandfather of all Weapons.”

Made from wax wood or rattan, in most instances, the staff is strong yet flexible and an effective fighting weapon.

The School of Shaolin Kung Fu teaches multiple staff forms.
