Vintage Dadao Training Video

I just came across this vintage video of Chinese WWII-era Dadao training. Check out the video below:

Although the Dadao is supposed to be a 2-handed weapon, but interestingly the practice shown in the video were done with 1-hand instead, and closely resembles modern Wushu forms.

A real Dadao is a heavy weapon, due to its broad mass. So to wield it effectively with only 1 hand requires much skill.

Check out the WWII Dadao training manual here:
