#PhilosophicalFriday is the Taiji Forum blog on philosophy and theory of the Chinese arts. It works with expressions and calligraphies from East and West to explore parallels and differences between Chinese and „Western“ culture and thought. – And it gives you a little something to chew on for your weekend.
At the moment, we are publishing a section of Ken van Sickle’s book „Tai Chi Sword“ every week. Simultaneously, Gabi’s German translation will be published on our German sister page. Be prepared for some unique insights into the philosophy and practice of the way of the sword in the Cheng Man Ching tradition!
Tai Chi principles lead us to moving the point by moving our grip / hand in the opposite direction, leaving the centre of the ‘stick’ relatively still like a lever, with little wrist strength required.
