Tai Chi Sword ( Jian )is a weaponry form of Tai Chi practice, in which the sword is viewed as an extension of the body, not a separate part of Tai Chi practice.
All Tai Chi weaponry forms preserve the same principles of Tai Chi Chuan (the hand form of Tai Chi).
The practice of Tai Chi sword requires a person to follow the sword forms correctly, by balancing the sword along with the body, and to apply power to the point of force.
The ultimate goal is to move the body and sword in unity with balance and rhythm.
In addition to the obvious self-defense application, swords were commonly carried by scholars for their elegance. Because of its beauty, the sword has always been popular for use in dance performances.
