of weapon that is use in Shaolin. Now let me introduce you the different parts of the
Broadsword. Okay, right here, this part is considered the blade of the Broadsword. It
is often use to chop. Use to chop stuff. This part is considered the back. This one here’s
the edge or the tip of the Broadsword. This whole thing right here, including the back,
the blade, the tip is called the body of the Broadsword. Right here, we have the handle,
right here we have the handle where we grab, and this one is the handle that protects our
hands. And some Broadswords, we got the cotton around this area, which I don’t have right

  1. The thin blades are used because they're quicker, and they stay sharp longer. Good for killing people without good armor. Heavy swords are for crushing bones through plate and chainmail, not for slicing.
