The Chinese fan was used both for dance and for combat.
The Tai Chi Single Fan routine incorporates movements from the Chen,
Yang, Wu, and Sun styles of Tai Chi Chuan. It was created by
Professor Wang, Ju-Rong; the first woman professor of Chinese
martial arts. This routine combines the characteristics of Tai Chi
Chuan with the artistic and martial functions of the fan. Practicing
the Tai Chi Single Fan can help develop your flexibility, strength,
balance, health, and further your Tai Chi training. Whether you
practice Tai Chi as a martial art or for health and enjoyment, you
will find Tai Chi Single Fan a wonderful addition to your overall
Tai Chi regimen.
