    Re: Tai Chi Bang Stick

    First what exactly is a Taiji bang stick, I have never heard of this before.

    What style is this from?

    Re: Tai Chi Bang Stick

    It's a traditional Chinese weapon/training aid that teaches you to emit fa-jing. In the beginning you practice the 22 Long Form and learn to punch holes in paper with your chi from a few yards away.

    As the student progresses he can specialize. Serious practitioners learn several versions. Some of the most popular are the one-hand 'numbered' forms like 17 Tupperware and the 454 Too Small Wang. Some still swear by the classic Large Colt Form which allows you to emit 230 grain energy blasts at 950 feet per second.

    Everyone acknowledges that the greatest power is generated by studying the most Ancient and Esoteric Tibetan Two-Hand Smo Kep Ole system.

    Or you could be ploddingly literal and say that it's actually the "Tai Chi Bang" i,e. Tai Chi Ruler.

    Re: Tai Chi Bang Stick

    Tai chi bang is a short stick:


    It's usually confused with taiji ruler:

    But the exercises are different.

    Taichi bang is likely from shuai jiao, which uses the same device in the same fashion. It increases grip strength and flexibility, making is excellent for qinna. The lineage that does it the most in Feng Zhi-qiang's hun yuan taijiquan.

    More ino on the differences:

    http://www.taichiacademy.com.au/products.php?id=9

    These look to be good DVDs BTW.


    This is an alternate version of the bang as done by Chen Qing-zhou. But he just demos it, he doesn't describe what he's doing.

    Re: Tai Chi Bang Stick

    Tai chi bang is like a dance where you're doing tai chi and holding the stick and twisting the stick as you do a form, I think, anyway thanks for all the posts, I'll look into the sites and dvds recommended. And no it's not for hitting crocs in australia over the head! emily

    The actual bang exercises don't begin until 1:16. Seems to me that Feng's lineage is confusing the exercises somewhat.
