This is a short, two-person form that can be practiced as a solo form.
It explains the basic principles of the Tai Chi Saber or Dao. I hope you enjoy this class as well as the other classes I offer at this site. There will soon be a reference video to compliment this class. Please check the On-Line Store for products to help your study and practice of this form and other Tai Chi activities.
