Fang Tian Hua Ji is a versatile weapon that combines a spearhead with a crescent-shaped blade. The crescent blade is an effective chopping implement, and can be used to hook, parry or bind opponent's weapon.
In modern martial arts communities, Fang Tian Hua Ji actually refers to a halberd with TWO crescent blades, while halberd with one crescent blade is known as Qing Long Ji (青龍戟, lit. 'Green dragon halberd'). However, this classification is a relatively modern development that does not conform to Ming period definition.
