Are there plans to...

Postby Shen » Sat Oct 22, 2011 11:32 am

Are there any plans to release the Tai Chi Staff Form on DVD in the near future?, I know you have the basics and the Southern Staff already, but still I wonder as that would be truly an interesting one to learn.

Warmest Regards,

Which taiji form specifically are you referring to please?

This DVD does cover Taiji Staff Fundamentals:

Taiji traditionally had it's own staff form and I was wondering about that.

Hi Shen:

In the introduction of the Taiji/Shaolin Staff DVD (linked above), Dr. Yang mentions that he is not aware of any Yang-style Taiji Staff forms, only basic drills. I have also never seen a standard Taiji staff form myself. It seems that a lot of people create their own Taiji staff forms for practice. If you are able to trace back any Taiji forms to their original lineages and masters, I'd be interesting in knowing learning about it, too :)

Ah I see, well that's alright then... Truth is I found something on it sometime ago but I can't quite remember where it was, if I find it again I'll be more than happy to give you the link and see what you think... I believe someone I ran across in my extensive net surfing had put out a DVD on it sometime ago. :)

Edit!, I found the links to a preview and the DVD itself. :D
