Tai Chi is a sequence of postures connected by flowing movement, practiced with focused breathing and a calm mind—a type of moving meditation. Practicing Tai Chi regularly can reduce stress, increase energy, balance, and flexibility, and ease symptoms of many health problems such as high blood pressure, asthma, back pain, and arthritis.

Tai Chi Silk Reeling: Yin-Yang Symbol is an ancient art known for training soft and flowing movements like silk reeling following the Tai Chi Yin-Yang Symbol to develop your sticking hands, body connection, coordination, and whipping power (Jin).

Tai Chi Sword Sequence

Focus: Movements #10-15 & Basic Techniques (All Levels Welcome)

TCM Time Course | August 7th-September 11th, 2021 | 6-week course | Saturdays 11:30AM-12:30PM 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

  • 1. Tai Chi Peng with Secret Sword
