There are 35 movements in this routine, which is reasonably and cohesively arranged. Its main movements include hack, chop, parry, thrust, intercept, press, push, slice, block and swing in figure-8 form. With smooth and round body movements and agile and stable footwork, the two broadswords are wonderfully played, fully embodying Chen style Tai Chi Chuan features of hardness and softness in harmony, fastness and slowness in interval and looseness, activeness and explosiveness in force application.. Exercise requirements: the broadswords should cooperate well with the steps, as the saying goes that "Looking at your hands when using single broadsword and watch your steps when using double broadsword which emphasizes the importance of your footwork when practicing two broadswords.
