Taiji Kun (staff)

Typically the staff is about 6 feet (2 metres) long, although this is an ‘average’ that does not

suit everyone. Shorter people may find a shorter staff easier to use, and taller people a longer staff.

 

The staff is generally the first weapon to be taught in our system.  Utilising both hands helps to build a balanced movement encouraging mobility inn the shoulder joints and requiring both sides of the body to be engaged.
