Broadsword Form

by alex renwick on 2014/04/28

Here is a version of the Broadsword Form that I performed at World Tai Chi Day 2014 in Houston.  I’m posting it because I didn’t find many examples on line when I was looking  for help.  My own criticism is that my stance isn’t low enough or wide enough.  One point I was working on was to have each move coming in, toward the body, or going out, away from the body, and to have smooth transitions between the two where appropriate.  I would welcome what ever comment anyone might have.

Edit: You may notice that I left out one cut at the end. I was busy thinking about what I would need to do to move back to my starting position and forgot it. You can see it both in Carl Lindberg’s version and Steve Chan’s.

Viewed it. You remember the form well. Thanks for presenting it at the World Taiji Day event. We also did an event in Edmonton and I am looking forward to photos from Allan.

Thank you for watching it. I worked hard to make sense of what I remembered of the form. I’m hoping to see you in September for the Cannon Fist workshop in Phoenix.

Hi Alex, I like the nimbleness of your form. I have some thoughts for you and gladly offer them. Please get my email from admin.

I am curious why does it look different than Li Enjiu’s Broadsword form.
