  • Tai Chi Sword - The 32 Forms - by gold medal winner Dr. Paul Lam. The Tai Chi Sword 32 form. Also includes demonstration of the combined 48 form.
  • Tai Chi Sword Forms - by Bob Klein. "There are two forms on this tape 1) the Chen Man-Ching form and 2) a fighting form. The first uses slow, relaxing movements similar to the open hand Yang form. The second is more energetic with intricate movements and spinning of the sword around the body. With each form, you see it straight through at regular pace and then the form is shown with stops between each movement and voice over instructions. Then the self defense applications are demonstrated, one and two person sword exercises are taught and at the end, some sword sparring shown." Bob Klein

    • The Art of Chinese Swordsmanship: The Manual of Taiji Jian - by Zhang Yun. Ever wonder about the martial applications of the jianpao (the tassel) of the double edged Taiji sword... It has several... and the jianpao affects proper Taiji sword form. The Art of Chinese Swordsmanship has this information and everything else you could ever want to know about Taiji swordsmanship. Includes specific info about the 32 posture Wu form with pictures and detailed explanations... but the book is applicable to all styles of Tai Chi sword. If you practice a sword form this one is a necessity... unfortunately it's a book not a Video but get it anyway.
    • Taiji Sword - by Chen Wei-Ming with Barbara Davis as translator. Yang Style Tai Chi Sword. This is the classic text on Tai Chi sword. Chen Wei-Ming was a longtime student of the taiji grand master Yang Cheng-Fu. Chen Wei-Ming eventually became famous himself as a scholar, martial artist, and proponent of the Yang style Tai Chi. In the 1920s he wrote a number of influential books on Tai Chi, including Taiji Sword (1927). Includes pictures of each of the postures of the form. The translation is scholarly, and Barbara Davis added a lot of useful information with her footnotes and commentary. This one is also a book as opposed to a video.
