During the early Qing Dynasty, 程眞如 (Cheng Zhen Ru) travelled to the E'mei Mountain to learn the art of the Spear from Monk Pu-En. After visiting various other Spear arts, Cheng found that what he learnt was the best by far, and named it "Art of E'mei Spear" to honour his teacher.
Cheng authored the E'mei Spear manual to share the art's invaluable strategies and tactics. There are no pictures in the manual.
This book is recommended for the advanced martial arts practitioners. It will be easier for you to understand the principles described in this manual if you have some prior experience in practicing with the Spear.

"As the Chinese say, 'hand techniques came from spear techniques', so, as a teacher I think students should start learning from spear. Through "The Art of E'mei Spear", my favorite ChineseLongsword's manual, I could develop a comprehensive way of learning and teaching starting from the spear, going through the swords and sabers and finally reaching hand techniques.
I am very thankful to Mr. Jack Chen for sharing all these valuable documents with the world. I've been searching for it for a long time, and thanks to him this knowledge can start being spread in Brazil!"
