Gora Fei Cha Contact Staff

Gora Fei Cha Contact Staff Zoom

Gora Fei Cha Contact Staff

The Feicha, or sometimes spelt Fei-Cha is an ancient martial arts weapon from the Kung Fu tradition of China.

This Feicha is a masterpiece for professional performers. The name means flying fork or flying spear. It has been used with contact staff techniques since thousands of years and is the origin of the contact staff as we know it today. An important difference however is that the Feicha acts as an off-centered contact staff, therefore playing with it feels more similar to a Contact Sword.

The original version has two bells attached which are used to make a loud noise to attract an audience during demonstrations for celebrations. Our Feicha is constructed so you can attach or remove the two bell discs, which is a very practical feature if you don’t want to drive your friends crazy  With bells attached, the very loud jingle sound makes your act very impressive on stage! In quiet mode, you can prevent your friends from becoming your enemies

In the default setting, the core is made of the same 7075 duraluminum alloy (22 x 1,5 mm) as our Fire Contact Staff, so it is extremely durable, doesn’t break or bend, but is light at the same time. Alternatively, we can create your Feicha from carbon which will make it even lighter.

The fork is made of mirror polished stainless steel, so it is shining and reflecting back the stage lights. The fork also removable, so you can use it as a practice contact staff too. The original feicha has only one fork on one end (Classic – One sided), but you can also select a Double (Two sided) feicha, which means your feicha will have a fork on both ends. This Double Feicha is symmetrical and therefore makes playing more similar to a contact staff. The handling surface is covered with our 3.2 mm thick SuperGrip©. It has a soft spongy underlayer and a sticky, dotted overlayer which does not get slippery when wet. Over the years we have tested many versions and this by far provides the best hold even when your body sweats, and is also suitable for feicha players with sensitive skin or allergies. The weight middle-point is clearly marked.

You can select a pair of flowers, which slow down the rolling movement of the feicha a bit while providing some extra weight for the spin. You can remove and reattach them as you like.

The full weight of the Feicha is 1330 g. We recommend the Feicha for all contact warriors.

Usage recommendations specific to our Feicha:

- Assembling / disassembling the feicha: When closing the connector, 2-3 turns are sufficient. Once you feel the connection is in place, do not force further – simply check that the connector holds. If you tighten too strongly, the nut may break off from the rubber joint. If this happens, you can easily replace it from our accessories section – but best to not break it! For opening the connector, 2-3 turns should be sufficient as well.

- If the connection is turning but not getting strong, it means that the rubber became slippery. This can be caused by oily dirt or cold. In this case you need to clean the top of the rubber joint or just get it wet – it will work again perfectly.

Note: this product is over 1.2m long and a £9.95 shipping surcharge will be added in the checkout.
