This is a rare two-handed form from the Emei Taoist Sect that was known only to a minutely small number of masters. It was believed that the master of each generation would transmit it to only 2 disciples of his inner circle in his lifetime.

In the past, Emei Spearmanship had been noted during the early Qing Dynasty for its combat effectiveness as to be mentioned in a Qing martial arts manual; though the present book doesn't state, I estimate this 2-handed jian form to be at least 150 years old or perhaps tracing its origins even much earlier. Prior to this book, it has never been openly published before.
