Ideas for a kid's dao

Post by Linda Heenan » Wed May 27, 2009 12:11 am

Hello everyone. A few years back, Tashi and I developed a padded training jian for beginner kids. It has been pretty successful and we still use them a lot, even though many also use wooden jian under the right conditions.

Now, I'd like to develop a dao in similar style for kids to train with, but I need good ideas. they have to be easy to make without cutting out shaped wood, etc. Here are the instructions for making the jian, so interested people can have a look:

Then, if you get a good idea about how to make dao in a similar easy way, please would you let me know.

Thanks everyone.
