There are many styles and forms of tai chi
practiced today, some of which use weaponry to reflect its origins as a
form of martial art training.
Throughout Chinese history, the sword has
been the most revered weapon for combat, but today its use is restricted
to non-combat situations in the martial arts and also in the performing
arts. It is the most graceful and popular of all weaponry used in tai
chi, and is an extension of expression of its essential principles.
Sword playing is fun and entertaining.
Although the sword edges are not sharpened there is a degree of danger.
Adult participants only. They must do pre-sword classes
Players who have been studying tai chi for
one year or more, have had martial art background, or can demonstrate
