Tai Chi Chuan - Barehanded Tai Chi
T'ai chi ch'uan or Taijiquan, often shortened to t'ai chi, taiji or tai chi
in English usage, is a type of internal Chinese martial art practiced for both
its defense training and its health benefits. It is also typically practiced for
a variety of other personal reasons: its hard and soft martial art technique,
demonstration competitions, and longevity. As a result, a multitude of training
forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims. Some
of t'ai chi ch'uan'straining forms are especially known for being practiced at
what most people categorize as slow movement.
Today, t'ai chi ch'uan has spread worldwide. Most modern styles of t'ai chi
ch'uan trace their development to at least one of the five traditional schools:
Chen, Yang, Wu (Hao), Wu, and Sun.

Tai Chi Jian - Straight Sword Tai Chi
Taijijian (simplified Chinese: 太极剑; traditional Chinese: 太極劍; pinyin: tàijíjiàn;
literally "Taiji Sword") is a straight two-edged sword used in the training of
the Chinese martial art Taijiquan. The straight sword, sometimes with a tassel
and sometimes not, is used for upper body conditioning and martial training in
traditional Taijiquan schools. The different family schools have various
warmups, forms and fencing drills for training with the jian.
