During the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912), schools specializing in the handling of the Dao were established, marking the beginning of its formal incorporation into Chinese martial arts.

One of the most distinctive features of Dao Swords is their curved blade, designed to make clean and precise cuts. Over the centuries, numerous styles and techniques were developed to make the most of this curved blade and the skill of the practitioners. Today, these swords remain an essential part of the practice of Tai Chi, Kung Fu and other Chinese martial disciplines.

Wielding the Sword Dao requires a perfect balance between strength and grace.
