《鞭 / 𨰝》
Chinese Whip / Truncheon
The Chinese Whip 鞭 (Bian) or Truncheon 𨰝 (Jian) is a brute bludgeoning weapon. It can be used to break bones, delivers a mean thrust, and snap blades in half.
This manual was written by 程子頤 (Cheng Zi Yi). He is the nephew of Master Cheng Zong You, who famously wrote manuals on the Spear, Long-Saber, Crossbow and Shaolin Staff.
According to the manual, Cheng Zi Yi found that the techniques of the Whip and the Long-Saber are very similar, and adapted the Long-Saber techniques into the practice of the Whip.
If you're already familiar with the Long Saber techniques, you may find that this manual on the Whip is very similar.

Spreading The Whip / Truncheon Legacy
The Chinese Whip / Truncheon is one of the less commonly practiced weapon in Chinese martial arts. Since there is also a Routine, or "Tao Lu", I hope this English translation can help you in practicing this weapon.
If you ever perform the Routine in this manual at some kind of Wushu competition, please send me the video. I will be sure to feature it here!
