Taiji Sword by Chen Weiming (1929) trans: Scott M. Rodell
Demonstrations of sword matches that focus on (striking) the wrist and arm are used the same in taiji sword. (I’ve) noticed that this has not been passed down.
Generally speaking, those practicing the sword dance today are
like a rolling wind, very fast like a swooping bird, and with an
appearance like a soaring dragon; it looks beautiful but is not
necessarily of any use.
