Referred to as the "Pear Flower & White Ape Staff", the form combines both weapons.

 

Chen Wangting formulated the routine, making it one of the most ancient Taiji forms based on a 24 movement spear form made famous in the Song dynasty. 

 

The spear is recognised as the "King of Weapons" It helps develop stronger energy flows. It enhances practice of other forms.

A widely qoted expression is "one hundred days  to practice broadsword, one thousand days to practice spear"
