Tai Chi Sword Sequence

Focus: Movements #15-20 & Basic Techniques (All Levels Welcome)

TCM Time Course | October 9th-November 13th, 2021 | 6-week course | Saturdays 12:00PM-1:30PM EDT

  • Tai Chi Sword is practiced to achieve higher and more profound levels of Qi. The theory of Tai Chi Sword is much deeper than that of barehand Taijiquan, and the techniques are consequently also more difficult to train and master.
  • An ancient Chinese martial arts proverb says: "It takes 100 days to master barehand, 1,000 days the spear, 10,000 days the sword.
  • The Tai Chi Sword Qigong set will be trained in this class as a preparation for the Tai Chi Sword Sequence classes.
  • Students will be introduced to the classical Yang Style Tai Chi Sword (楊氏太極劍, yángshì tàijíjiàn) form, which consists of 54 movements.
  • Note: A sword will not be necessary for this class, but it can be helpful to order a wooden or metal sword for future classes
  • Suggestions: a long umbrella, a long ruler, a toy wand, a long shoe horn, a short rod, or even a paper towel roll would work — anything that gives you an extension of your arm.
  • Recommendation: Wood Training Sword | YMAA - https://ymaa.com/publishing/training-equipment/wood-training-sword

Tai Chi Sword Qigong Set:

  • 1. Tai Chi Peng with Secret Sword
