kung-fu-killersThis documentary is counting down the top 10 deadliest Kung Fu weapons and fighting techniques. The Kung Fu documentary shows uses of famous Chinese weapons, including rare and unconfirmed weapons like the flying guillotine.

In Chinese, Kung Fu can be used in contexts completely unrelated to martial arts, and refers colloquially to any individual accomplishment or skill cultivated through long and hard work. The origins of Chinese martial arts can be traced over 6,000 years ago to self-defense needs, hunting activities and military training in ancient China. Hand-to-hand combat and weapons practice were important components in the training of Chinese soldiers.

Kung Fu Killers



  1. Right……sword is 10 and a chop stick is 5…hhhhm ? I tell you what; you take a chop stick, and I’ll take the sword we’ll see who wins.

  2. Interesting but not very well done. They should have ranked the weapons individually, not in groups. The #1 choice was pretty much a joke. It is probably the least practical weapon of all time. Too much Hollywood and not enough reality. Watch the episode of Deadliest Warrior: Shaolin vs Maori for a better understanding on what was deadly.

  3. As much as I do love Chinese and unique weaponry, I have to say that the numbers were off. Had the list been about the most unique killing devices of the time I may have agreed, but to say that a fan can kill better than a saber is a little too much. I’m actually studying tessenjutsu (Fighting fan technique) and I know that should someone attack me with a sword or saber, I’m dead.

  4. This doc would be so much better if they didn’t input that slashing noise during visual demonstrations while the narrator explains the weapon.

  5. lol!!
    at 14:34 the horses just start grazing wile the humans kill themselves
    i laughed soo hard

  6. A look at ten weapons China developed, most of which are impressive.
    I study polearm use, and while someone with a chain whip could easily kill me on my own, all I need to do is back up and get one good thrust or slash with my polearm and that’s it for them.
    I really love the number one weapon. How about for the future, documentaries stick to weapons that existed, not just as the props in a terrible movie?
    Meteor hammers are cool, but sadly, rather easy to dodge. The ji is probably the most effective on that list, being able to take on several different weapon roles without losing its effectiveness.

  7. Also, did anyone else think to look up some of the facts? That 40 kg weapon they reference is the Green Dragon Crescent Blade, and weighs 40 lbs. Not 40 kg. There is a weapon on display that is said to be the Green Dragon, but it weights 48 kg. Plus, it isn’t the Green Dragon.
    How many other facts did this ‘documentary get wrong?
