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 13 Power Taiji Sabre
This weekend we will study of the 13 Power Taiji Sabre (Shisanshi Taijidao). This is one of the least known components of Yang-style Taijiquan. We will use solo and partner work, including some light fencing, to illuminate the concepts of this fascinating work. As well, we will review the 13 Yang-style Taiji Sabre form we learned last October. Recommended equipment is listed below. The class will be adapted to how participants are outfitted.
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!
