24 Taiji Jian

A friend in my practice group comes back from Beijing with the most interesting forms. This time it’s 24-sword. I haven’t been able to find out much about it, except that it seems to be relatively new (2001?) and allegedly contains 16 sword techniques (jianfa)(I count 12) and 10 kinds of step. I’m using this video:

I’ve come up with a list of the 24 movements. Some of them sound simple (#13 gong bu ci jian, for example) but involve quite complicated transitions. According to one page, it’s a Yang-style form, but it looks combined to me.

Here’s the list:

  1. 起势 Qǐshì
  2. 白鹤亮翅 Bái hè lìang chì
  3. 并步点剑 Bìng bù diǎn jiàn
  4. 野马跳剑 Yé mǎ tiào jiàn
  5. 歇步刺剑 Xiē bù cì jiàn
  6. 勾腿劈剑 Gōu tuǐ pī jiàn
  7. 虚步点剑 Xū bù diǎn jiàn
  8. 上步搅剑 Shàng bù jiǎo jiàn
  9. 弓步刺剑 Gōng bù cì jiàn
