I'm in taikwando and am now confused about something I dont think is even taikwando?

I was on Century, buying weapons for training for taikwando, and found tai chi swords. I have loved tai chi for as long as I can remember, and have wanted to take it for the same length. I know weapons, because that is my favorite part about it, but I have never heard of useing tai chi in taikwando. Why was it there, and where can I learn it? Is there an association that teaches it?

Tai Chi Chuan is an entirely different ball game than Tae Kwon Do. Your confusion might stem from the words themselves sounding similar.

Since you are a TKD practitioner, I don't think I need to explain the concepts to you, save the fact that it is what is categorized as an "external" system; that is, you work hard physically, then the mental prowess comes in time thereafter.

Tai Chi Chuan is an "internal" system, which first focuses on slow, fluid movements and forces you to be aware of your physical state at all times. Once this awareness is attained (which usually takes years of practice) and one feels the flow, the movements are sped up, and can actually be very devastating. The words themselves roughly translate to "Supreme Ultimate Fist". Beyond that, as what I assume is the case in your TKD class, weapons come after learning with empty hands. Furthermore, many people never progress beyond the slow fluid movements since the motions massage the internal organs and this results in benefits to all around health. Some even dub Tai Chi Chuan as "moving meditation".

Also, TKD is from Korea, and Tai Chi Chuan is from China. If you wish to learn Tai Chi Chuan, seek out a kung fu school ("kwoon"), but be careful as there are a lot of bad schools out there. Just do some research as to what is in your area, and you may find something that benefits you.

I used to take TKD, and was in it for about 9 years, got my 2nd degree black belt, then moved on the Chinese Martial arts to continue being challenged. Some of my training over-lapped, and I was able to use some Tai Chi Chuan concepts during sparring exercises, much to my delight! They are physically, though, quite different, so mind the fact your training will grow more difficult should you take both simultaneously.

By the way "Tai Chi" is philosophy, and has been around for roughly 4,000 years. "T'ai Chi Chu'an" is the martial art, and has been around for a considerably shorter amount of time, about 500 years or so.

I hope I helped!
