There are two versions of this chain, a lighter one (usually used in wushu exibithions) and a heavier one used to all effects as a weapon.
It is an extremely dangerous weapon and can be handled only after a long workout with the elastic rope (first free and then with a light weight).
In 6DKF the first thing we learn is its “soft swinging”, then we switch to rigid rotations, to stopping, to achieve a static target (without getting hit bounce), a moving target… and gradually we come to the last stage, the motion of the dragon (but only after years of training).
