HPE* K138 - Tai Chi II °


1 CREDIT HOUR
Prerequisite: HPE* K136  or permission of the instructor.
Tai Chi II, although not a continuation of Tai Chi, is a program designed for students who have taken at least one Tai Chi class or other Tai Chi classes approved by the instructor. This course may cover two sections of learning: a Tai Chi bare-hand routine and/or a Tai Chi weapon routine. For a bare-hand routine in this course, an in-depth explanation of the theory and the applications of each movement will be covered. For a weapon routine, students will be introduced to the use of some Chinese martial arts weapons, which include a fan, sword, a saber, a long staff, or a short staff. Students will learn k274 the basic skills in using the weapon they are going to use in the routine before they start to learn the routine. The weapons to be used in class will be either of a wooden or a blunt and rounded material that is safe to use in the classroom environment. Safe use of the weapon will be stressed. The movements used in all Tai Chi weapon routines taught in this course will be soft, slow and non-explosive, just like its other Tai Chi bare-hand routine counterpart. Since there are so many different styles and kinds of Tai Chi and bare-hand and weapon routines, this course can be repeated by those students who wish to obtain a more in depth learning experience in the Tai Chi art form.
