English translation of the 400 years old manual written by Ming Dynasty General Yu Da-you. More information:


If there is only 1 book that you'd ever get on, get this Sword Treatise. This is currently the most advanced book on this website, and it will help you to become proficient with ANY weapon.


Sword Treatise is also the 1st book that I specially paid extra money to publish it using traditional Chinese stitch-binding, which is to tie the pages together like how they did in ancient China.

     I hope when you flip open this book, you'll get inspired by the wisdom of General Yu Da-you and past warriors, and pass on their martial arts legacy.
