Taiji Sabre & 24 Taijiquan (review) with Sam Masich - Gatineau QC Canada
Master the traditional Yang-style Taijiquan Weapons Full Curriculum!
This unique three year long series covers the weapons curriculum of Yang-style Taijiquan and includes Taiji Sabre (Dao), Taiji Straight-sword (Jian), and Taiji Spear (Qiang). Learn the traditional forms and the thirteen power concept for each weapon. Sam's approach to this subject will provide students with deeper insights into taijiquan's concepts of health, self defence and self-cultivation.
Saturday/Sunday Taiji Sabre
This weekend we will study the solo sabre form popularized by Fu Zhongwen in his 1959 co-authored book 'Taijidao.' The form follows the rhythm of a thirteen line poem (Taijidao Jue) and is therefore known as 'Thirteen Taiji Sabre.' The sabre is a relatively simple weapon, the mastery of which, prepares students for complexities of the straight-sword and spear. Please bring a wooden or metal taiji sabre. A Japanese style 'katana' will work. Excellent taiji sabres can be purchased from the Yang Family website here.
Friday evening 24 Movement Taijiquan
24 Movement Taijiquan is also known as 'Simplified Taijiquan' as it provides a stepping stone between novice and more advanced traditional forms. Created in 1954, the 24 is part of a standard introductory program taught in schools, parks and institutions throughout mainland China and around the world. Tonight we will look at difficult movements and common problems. Bring questions!
