Taiji Sabre

Grandmaster Wong demonstrating the Taiji Sabre

As the sabre is likened to a tiger, does practicing the sabre make one's Taijiquan hard? Such a concern is derived from a mistaken concept that Taijiquan is only soft. Like all great kungfu, Taijiquan is both hard and soft, forceful and gentle. Practicing the Taiji Sabre will enhance the forceful aspect of Taijiquan.
