Wu Style Sword

The Sword of Tai Chi Chuan is straight and double-edged, is distinguished by its fine, elegant, and flowing movement and its distinctive features are delicacy and finesse. That’s why it’s also regarded as a weapon for officers and Grand Masters.

 

As a fighting means, the Sword is considered to be more as a combat weapon rather than an arm to confront many opponents, and it emphasizes to nailings, cuts and other subtle blows, yet destructive, as they are always striking critical and vulnerable parts of the opponent’s body. At the same time, as a doubled-edged weapon, it allows for a direct change of direction of the strike, an ability which is very important for the weaponless close combat.

The practice of the Sword cultivates flexibility, a deeply coordinated movement of the whole body, the connection of the pelvis and the legs with the upper part of the body, and also increases the fluidity and sensitivity of the joints of the hands.

As is the case with all weapons, the sword is an art by itself for the serious student who seeks competence. Apart from the corresponding forms that are highly detailed and demanding, the sword practice also includes individual exercises to understand the weapon’s technique, special exercises that cultivate sensitivity similar to Pushing Hands (Sticking Sword), as well as some very demanding fighting applications.
