Handheld Fighting Fans (Tessen)
Fighting fans are made from a variety of woods and metals, and usually feature beautiful designs to help distract an unsuspecting opponent. These designs were also useful in battle, when battle commanders would use Japanese war fans (gunsen, tessen, and gunbai) to signal orders to large groups of soldiers and even block arrows. Due to their weight and flexibility, Bamboo Kung Fu Fans are very popular with women or martial artists performing form demonstrations. If you're so inclined, you can even use a bamboo fan for Kitana cosplay. The heavier aluminum or steel fans are popular for practicing offensive weapon techniques and can be used for joint locks, striking, and even deflecting attacks from other kinds of weapons. KarateMart carries a variety of fighting fans, which are perfect for weapons demos, dojo decorating, or just keeping yourself cool in the summer.
