The traditional Chinese saying "100 days of bare hand, 1,000 days of spear, 10,000 days of sword" places mastering the sword as the highest achievement in martial art weaponry.

During Tai Chi Sword practise the sword must be viewed as an extension of body not a seperate entity. The practitioner is to balance the sword with the body, to apply power accurately and to follow the sword forms correctly. The  goal of the practitioner is not only to complete the forms correctly but to move the body and sword  as one.

 

This introduction workshop provides participants with insights and practical knowledge required for understanding the jian and includes an introduction to the 32  Sword Form
