Inside the Tai Chi Daggers Ruler

Double Tai Chi DaggersDo No Kai Martial Arts Temple‘s beautiful Tai Chi Rulers come in two forms: solid and hollow with a surprise. It’s the ruler with the surprise inside that is the subject of this brief article.

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.

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.
