TAIJIQIANG – Taiji Spear

P1020735

 Tai Chi Spear Ode

If your spear pierces, my spear seizes.

If your spear pauses, my spear thrusts.

If your spear comes in like an arrow, my spear removes it like lightening.

If your spear acts like a Golden Rooster Recklessly Nodding His Head,

Then my spear removes it like Poking Grass to Search for a Snake.

And still this type of skill is not considered as expertise as Tai Chi Spear.
