What is it?   Perhaps, there is no weapon as synonymous to Wudang Martial Arts than the Taiji Jian. Its unique style is fabled among the Chinese martial art schools. It perfectly reflects the culture and philosophy of Daoism; and it aligns with Qigong practices of transforming the energy substance of the body into the spiritual one.  The Taiji Sword elevates your practice in Taiji and Qigong. The grace and fluidity of the jian movements will inspire you. 


剑身合一 - The Sword and body become one.

Is this workshop for me? 
If you are a student of Master Zhou in Taiji, or you have experience in other Taiji styles such as Yang and Chen, we invite you to join us. 

1. Taiji beginners in Shifu's classes (in-person or Zoom students) are welcome to participate in this workshop. 

2. If you are already learning Taiji Jian under Master Zhou,  he will review where you are in your training, continue where you left off, and concentrate on areas you need reviewing and polishing. 

3. Owing to the differing area and levels of skills in the given group, Master Zhou will tailor the lessons individually; but will collectively practice together. 

Weapon:  For a beginner with Taiji background, please secure a straight sword either wooden or aluminum.
