Dao or cutlass Tai Chi

Slow Dao or cutlass Yang style Tai Chi
Gerard Menzel

this is a excerpt from the form.

The Dao or cutlass is the spirit of the tiger. Mr Kay taught me this form also in the '80's.

This form is very dynamic and has the spirit of the tiger inherent in it.  It is very  martial in feeling with turns kicks and strikes.

Usually we learn these faster sword forms after a slow form . they develop power and agility and chi.

Its imperative that the teacher is good. The form is as  good as the teacher. Mr Kay was a great one.
He is an acupunturist and runs the Yang academy of Tai Chi in Melbourne.
