Chain

The chain whip is heavy but flexible, allowing it to be literally used as a whip to hit, hook and bind an opponent, restrict his/her movement, and to deflect blows from other weapons. The dart is used for slashing or piercing an opponent.  Because the whip is flexible, it can be used to strike around obstacles, including an opponent's block. The whip chain can be folded and hidden from view, making it an easy weapon to carry and conceal.

Chain whip uses techniques which many times wrap around the users body to change it's direction and confuse the opponent.  Common types of wrapping go around the arms, legs, neck, and torso. 

As with all flexible weapons the whip chain is hard to control without practice. The chain whip is sometimes considered one of the hardest weapons in martial arts.  t

In Chinese it is referred to as the Bian in Chinese.
