Two extremely sharp daggers nest one on top of the other and fit perfectly within our Tai Chi Daggers Ruler. The blades are professionally made of fine steel and inscribed with a decorative figure or kanji. When closed, our Tai Chi Daggers Rulers measure about 11 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. The blades themselves measure approximately 5 inches each, and are sharpened on both sides, coming to a piercing point.
Hand-Crafted in a Working Martial Arts Temple!
Like all our other products, this bladed martial arts weapon is created by top-ranking martial artists in the Weapons Workshop at Do No Kai Temple. You can read more about the Tai Chi Rulers makers here.
The Tai Chi Daggers Ruler offers a two-fold purpose, as opposed to the regular, one-piece Tai Chi Ruler. The Daggers Ruler may be used exactly as an advanced Tai Chi practitioner would use a Tai Chi Ruler. It may also be wielded as an extremely effective weapon. To that end, Do No Kai Temple incorporates a double-dagger weapons form that teaches students how to most effectively use the Tai Chi Daggers Ruler.

Learn How to Do It Right
Do No Kai Temple recognizes that correct use of both the Tai Chi Ruler and the Tai Chi Daggers Ruler requires a good understanding of not only the hand moves and changes, but also of the proper stances and their smooth transitions. We have produced two complete instructional videos to help martial arts students perfect these arts, one for the regular Tai Chi Ruler, and the other for the Daggers Ruler. With the purchase of our Tai Chi Rulers or a set of our Tai Chi Daggers Rulers, you will receive these teaching DVDs, free of charge.
