"The Taiji Sword form never fails to delight audiences. Its dramatic leaps and turns, its shining blade sweeping through the air, and swirling red tassel capture the attention of young and old alike. Taiji Sword, a subset of Taijiquan, is based on the principles of relaxation, yielding, and use of softness to overcome force. Taijiqua practitioners cherish the Taiji Sword for its unique exploration of body-mind focus and powerful lessons for Taijiquan practice." -Translator's IntroductionWei-Ming, Chen is the author of 'Taiji Sword', published 2000 under ISBN 9781556433337 and ISBN 1556433336.
