Taiji Sword has long been considered the highest achievement in Taijiquan training. Mainly used as a defensive weapon, Taiji Sword requires a strategy of ‘calmness in action’. To achieve this calmness, the student must develop patience, peace of mind, and bravery.
This comprehensive DVD contains:
- The complete 54-Posture Taiji Sword Form
- The Taiji Sword Qigong Set
- Taiji Qigong Breathing
- Fundamental Sword Techniques

The ultimate or final goal of Taiji Sword training is to gain a deep understanding of yourself in order to lead a more enlightened life. – Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming
Language: English, French
Dr. Yang's performance is pretty good and the disc has applications and qigong associated with the sword. A good disc but it has no narration, making it difficult to pick up the key points. Yang has a book on taiji sword, a must buy if you get this DVD so you'll have more detail that the disc lacks.
