“Shao” is derived from an agricultural tool. It was used to harvest beans and other harvested food but was gradually incorporated into the Taichi weapons syllabus. “Shao” can be divided into two kinds: one is shao pole, the other is shao stick. As there is male and female for everything in this world, the division between a large pole and a small stick is designed to reflect the masculine and feminine elements of nature. It contains the moves of chopping, pressing, circling, hanging and also shao dancing.
