《武藝圖譜通志 - 長槍》
Muye Dobo Tongji - Jang Chang
The Korean Long Spear
From the 1st scroll of the Korean manual, Muye Dobo Tongji, is a chapter on 長槍 (Chn: Chang Qiang, Krn: Jang Chang), Long-Spear. The stances in the manual can be traced to the Chinese Yang Style Pear-Flower Spear.
While this Korean manual did not go into the practical applications of the Spear stances, I've extracted information from the Chinese Yang Style Pear-Flower Spear and included it to make this book more comprehensive.
Available as an English-translated e-Book is the "Long-Spear" chapter found in the Korean manual, Muye Dobo Tongji.

- Introduction & History
