IWuF Heaven and Earth taiji sword



The international governing body for Chinese Martial Arts competition, the International Wushu Federation (IWuF), has established standards for swords in competition. The hollow-ground blade design strengthens the spine of the blade while keeping the tip flexible. This makes for a light, yet sturdy weapon with a balance that’s ideal for competition or every day practice. Each weapon comes with a special tag that certifies that they have met the rigorous new standards for competition. Tai Chi swords use a flattened-diamond blade design. Comes in multiple sizes for a perfect fit. Comes with scabbard made from beautiful "huali" wood.
