Practising the spear is said to promote wisdom.
Just like open hand tai chi combat, there are eight uses of force with the spear. The first four are the same as open hand, but the final four are slightly different.
In addition to the 8 methods of force, the spear can be used with the butt or body of the spear to strike or push an opponent.
The object is to keep the opponent at spear’s length; at the point of the spear ideally. Once an attacker comes inside this range, the spearman is at a disadvantage, which is when the above comes into play.
