Yu Qi created the Niulang staff system about 300 years ago. The staff is about 1-meter long and incorporates techniques from both long and short weapons. The staff always moves in a spiral motion and short explosive power is generated from the waist. The Niulang staff art is a major traditional wushu discipline for preservation and research.
