Tai Chi Bang: Eight-Immortal Flute By Jesse Tsao

Tai Chi Bang: 
Eight-Immortal Flute 
By Jesse Tsao

 Also known as Tai Chi Stick or Tai Chi Ruler, the
Tai Chi Bang: Eight-Immortal Flute is an energy 
practice based on characteristic Tai Chi postures 
combined with traditional Chinese self-healing 
meditation and self-defense kung fu. Tai Chi Bang 
provides an object to focus on between the palms, 
bonding the two hands moving together. This makes it 
easy and fun for beginners to feel the qi (energy), 
and gain the benefits of Tai Chi practice. 

Students who find it difficult to quiet their minds 
find this practice especially effective for focusing  
attention. Holding the Bang with both palms helps 
students to concentrate and be in the moment. The 
movements of the Bang imitate the movement of 
the qi inside the body. It relieves stress, gathers
fresh energy, rejuvenates the body and spirit, brings 
inner calm, and promotes qi and blood circulation.
