The Odd East Asian Sai

By Robert E. Dohrenwend, Ph.D.

The Odd East Asian Sai

It is likely that the sai developed from a very old weapon, the trident spear, which was distributed throughout East Asia in antiquity. This highly researched article explores various theories about the nature of the weapon itself, instructional lineages, sai techniques, and its current and historical distribution.
