T'ai Chi Sword makes full use of the combined techniques of Whirling Hands and Whirling Arms, but these are made more difficult by the weight and length of the sword. Greater mental concentration is required to retain complete control of the arms, wrists and hands, while maintaining perfect balance, especially in a few sequences where the whole body makes a complete whirl to demonstrate the 'order of the universe'. These techniques are not easy, but nothing is really easy in the full art of T'ai Chi, because there is so much to remember and so many movements have to be practised in order to understand the essence of energy and force, and expand self-awareness and mental control.

Asking questions might seem quite an ordinary thing to do, but it is a very responsible job, and not always that easy to do with shy or reticent patients. However, it is necessary to fully understand the person's complaint, its development, how long it has gone on for, the person's eating and drinking habits, any accompanying aches or pains and how long they last, and whether it is painful at a specific time of the day. It is also sometimes useful to know the area of the world that they were born in, also the eating habits of the parents, and whether there are any hereditary tendencies in the family, and if so, how far back in time these inclinations seem to go....

T'ai Chi Chien

T'ai Chi Sword makes full use of the combined techniques of Whirling Hands and Whirling Arms, but these are made more difficult by the weight and length of the sword. Greater mental concentration is required to retain complete control of the arms, wrists and hands, while maintaining perfect balance, especially in a few sequences where the whole body makes a complete whirl to demonstrate the 'order of the universe'. These techniques are not easy, but nothing is really easy in the full art of T'ai Chi, because there is so much to remember and so many movements have to be practised in order to understand the essence of energy and force, and expand self-awareness and mental control.
