Master Benson Lee describes the theory behind short stick techniques and application 

Defending against a short stick, as with any attack, requires timing, speed and accuracy. The strategy of Eagle Claw Kung Fu is based on quickly neutralizing an attack through moving, blocking, and disarming or locking the opponent. Below, students practice striking the wrist joint to disarm an attacker.
