Introduction to Yang 32 Sword Workshop
SpringHill Suites by Marriott
110 N Myers St, Oceanside, CA 92054, USA
Friday to Sunday, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
The Sword is a beautiful extension of the essential Tai Chi
principles. Very few sword workshops are offered because very few tai chi instructors are qualified to teach sword. Hong Yang has a very special 3 days planned. She will go into depth on details and help you feel comfortable with the sword as an extension of your body. This workshop will improve your open hand tai chi and the flow of your chi in addition to improving your sword form. During the workshop Hong will review the first 12 movements of the
32 form that you have learned. It is important that you learn these movements
before the workshop so Hong can focus on depth.
This will be an excellent workshop for those new to sword but will also include depth for those who are already practicing. Because of the detail involved in teaching sword, the workshop will be limited in size. We encourage you to register early.
