Because the original Tai Ji 13 Dao was a short performing routine set, it was under 3 minutes when performed with normal speed.
To meet time limit (between 3~4 minutes) of traditional routine Tao Lu performance in competition or assessment, many schools in Northern
Wu style Tai Chi lineage have put more or less extra movements in the original set. Examples can be found in various Wu Style Tai Ji
13 Dao VCDs or DVDs from different school teachings.
Like others, we put two or three extra movements in the original set too. One of these extra movements is adopted from the Tai Ji 13 Dao
Tao Lu taught by Master Ma Jin Long who is a disciple of grand master Wang Pei Sheng. The name of this extra movement is called:
<金钱代镖连珠发> - throwing 12 coins as 12 darts.
In Chinese martial arts history, the edge sharpened ancient Chinese coins were well used as concealed weapons for fighting or assassinating.
So it is understood that these kinds of techniques are not commonly or publicly taught in history. Today, we can only be able to learn the
movements of their throwing; the techniques of the throwing for targets are unknown.
The 12 coins are launched in four times, each time, there are 3 coins used as one bundle being picked up from launcherís pocket in waist area
and then thrown by launcher's right hand. The throwing movements are consistent, vivid and unique.
This DVD will show you a† Northern Wu Style Tai Chi sabre with the 12 coins throwing.
