How to choose the right length of Tai Chi Sword

Select the size of the Tai Chi Sword according to your height. For example, the shortest 71cm (28 inch) blade is suitable for men up to 169cm tall. The size of the tai-chi sword grows 2 inches every 10cm of body size.

  • 28 inches ... up to about 169cm (5′ 6.5″)
  • 30 inches ... from about 170-179cm (5′ 7″ to 5′ 10.5″)
  • 32 inches ... from about 180cm (5′ 10.9″)

The appropriate length depends on individual body type, musculature and gender. Women should choose one size smaller.

If you want to be sure that you have chosen the correct length of the Tai-Chi Sword, we will tell you a little trick. Hold the sword in Tai Chi initial posture and place its blade on the back of your arm as close as possible. The tip of the sword blade should ideally reach the top edge of your ear with tolerance +/- 1cm (1/2″).
