Shashoujian

In general, shashoujian refers to a means or way one can overcome a seemingly insurmountable obstacle. In planning, shashoujian is sought to change the dynamics in a situation. According to Bruzdzinski (2004), shashoujian "implies an action or quality that offers strategic advantage when employed in a particular way, at a key moment of opportunity for the accomplishment of a specific goal." Shashoujian exploits inherent weaknesses in an enemy and the term has its origin in the Tang dynasty (618-907 A.D.). The term shashoujian is translated in English as "assassin's mace", “magic weapon” or "killing maze". Shashoujian is the "perfect weapon" that serves as a "trump card".
