Tai Chi Weapons—When Hands Are Not Empty

Taught by Professor David-Dorian Ross | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Health,Fitness & Nutrition Courses

Try out this ancient martial art, seeing how even everyday objects can be used for practice. Then master a new movement in the short form: Rooster Stands on One Leg.
