Yang Style Tai Chi Dao/Saber/Broadsword
This is a series of classes on the Yang Style Dao or Saber Form.
Reference Materials:
Companion Video »
This class is also offered as a
Studio Class »
 
It consists of 39 movements, many of which are quite similar to the Yang Style Long Solo Form. These lessons will be posted over a period of several months. Please take the time to work through each movement as it is presented. I will do my best to include applications wherever appropriate. I will also be showing the form from two views – front and side – to aid in your understanding.

I highly recommend that you purchase a wooden saber for this class. You will need something. A straight stick would probably be better to use then a double edge sword if a saber is not available.

I wish you the very best in your studies. Feel free to contact me through this web site with any questions or comments.
