The nine-section whip is one of the Shaolin soft weapons. It has a great fame of the "dragon in weapons." Most of Shaolin fighting monks practice this weapon. During the training, lay stress on the route of hands, eyes, steps, body and the whip which mean flexing the wrist nimbly, watching the whip's tip carefully, stepping forward evenly and turning the body freely.

Shaolin weapons have a great variety. According to the legend that after the thirteen cudgel-bearing monk soldiers rescued the Qin Prince Li Shimin in the fighting against the Sui general Wang Sichong, the relations between the Shaolin Monastery and the Imperial Court became gradually close. The imperial Court often sent their generals and officers to Shaolin Monastery to learn the kungfu from the monk soldiers. At the same time, the Imperial generals and officers also brought with their own specialties of wushu skills to Shaolin Monastery. General Guan Yunchang, Cheng Yaojin, Luo Cheng, Gao Huide and the Yang family members, for instance, taught the Shaolin monks their characteristic fighting skills with the broadsword, the crescent axe, the plum-blossom spear and black-tiger hammer. All these weapons were skillfully mastered by the Shaolin fighting monks. After repeated practice and research, Shaolin fighting monks were able to develop many different types of weapons and form their own unique styles. The variety of Shaolin weapons eventually increased to over 120 after the Song Dynasty. Now the spear, sword, cudgel, broadsword, shovel, halberd, hook, hammer and nine-section whip are in common use.
