Quite an uncommun weapon ! The wheels are held with one in each hand, used for defending, slashing and stabbing.

This civilian weapon is associated with the Taoist Chinese martial arts, such as baguazhang and taijiquan.
Some martial art scholars propose that the ring, and its variants equipped with points, arrived to China from Mongolia by the Yuan dynasty [1206-1312]. An alternative origin of these weapons is Central Africa, where many variants of similar large throwing knives equipped with multiple blades mounted on capriciously curved handles [Kulbeda, Pinga or Trombash knives] were then being systematically in use since 1350-1000 BCE. The Ming dynasty Admiral Zheng He reached East Africa around 1421-1422. Himself or his sailors might have come across these african knifes, and brought them to the attention of the Chinese.

The modern forms devoted for the Wind and Fire Wheels and similar weapons are used as double "armes de melée" (weapons for body-to-body combat) using the ring sharpened border & prongs to slash, and stab the adversary, or parry and lock his weapon.
The Wind and Fire Wheels, and similar ring-shaped toothed weapons (Crescent Moon Knives, Sun & Moon Bagua knives, ...) can also be used as efficient throwing knifes.

The weapon is rarely practiced in Western Europe, but quite well known in the Americas.
