Hats for Chinese martial arts
|We use the modern baseball cap and cool
wrap for keeping heads from overheating when training outdoors.
Sometimes there is particularly attractive scenery (like a
beach) where you just have to be there as opposed to in front of
a green screen. Other times, when we are working with the long
staffs (lau gar) or doing archery, atlatls and javelins, indoors
is just not practical.
|There are three different hats (usually
translated as hat-scarves) worn by different Taoist sects.
|You will want to measure the diameter of
your head - easiest if someone helps - with a tape measure.
Usually, the maximum diameter is just above the eyebrows. Make
sure to account for hair!
