The T'ai Chi Centre

SWORD FORMS

When practising with a weapon one's intrinsic energy is projected into that weapon, transforming the essentially inanimate object into a lively and natural extension of our energy. Straight-sword, sabre and staff are all part of 'The T'ai Chi Centre' syllabus, practice with each weapon cultivates a particular disposition of spirit associated with that weapon. Weapons training begins when students are proficient in the empty-hand forms. more >
