Tai Chi Ball: Wooden Beginner Ball - BEE's Wax Finish

 

Chi energy is not reserved for the "Greatest Generation". Today, here in the West, we are beginning to understand that Tai Chi is not just slow motion movements. In fact, the Shaolin Monks practice tai chi and it can be awesome! The power and strength demonstrated with Tai Chi Ball training is something to behold. At Atomic Athletic we have both wooden and granite tai chi balls. These solid kiln dried hardwood balls have been designed specifically for Tai Chi Ball Training. 

This size ball would be considered the beginner's size (6" Dia.), but still used at the start of the workout for warm-ups, cool-downs and any marathon length sessions. Ball weighs approximately 2-3 lbs.

New BEE'S  WAX & Mineral Oil coating: This is a perfect ball for the home tai chi practitioner who is aware of the Chi Flow Energy issues associated with the various wood protection finishes.  

 

Atomic Athletic Tai Chi Balls are made in the USA of kiln dried hard wood. Sifu Yang of YMAA with Beginner Tai Chi Ball & Intermediate Tai Chi Ball

 

The BEE'S WAX Coating is sometimes preferred when the tai chi practitioner is not concerned about the durability of the finish on the wood, but also very cognizant of Chi Flow associated with those finishes. Maintenance required: the Bee's Wax & Mineral Oil coated Tai Chi Balls need to be re-waxed periodically, but less often than the standard paste wax we use on the cheaper paste WAX coated tai chi balls.  We are often asked how often this needs to be done.  The answer is, "It depends."  It depends on how often the ball is used.  Is the tai chi ball being sweated on and regularly wiped dry with a towel?  Essentially, the salts and acids in human sweat are hard on wood.  Our Bee's Wax & Mineral Oil Finish is applied with heat after the first coat then a second coat is applied after the first dries.  Bee's Wax is an awesome finish when applied this way, because the heating process we use allows the wood to actually suck up this all natural finish.

Tai Chi Wooden Ball Finish Options:

All Atomic Athletic Wooden Tai Chi balls include an Industrial Grade finish for durability and longevity. We offer 3 choices of finish.

Industrial Grade Wax Finish:
A durable hard wax coating that seals the ball from moisture and protects the surface. This finish offers a slight sheen. 


All Natural Bee's Wax & Mineral Oil:

This Tai Chi Ball has the all Natural Bee's Wax & Mineral Oil Finish.  This is a "food grade" coating that would be acceptable for use with tools like cutting boards, in a kitchen.  It has a wonderful velvetty feel, with a slight honey smell.
Industrial Grade Polyurethane Finish:
A harder polyurethane coating that seals the ball from moisture and protects the surface. This finish is more durable and more resilient to popular cleaning solutions. This finish is semi-gloss. Please choose SKU # TAICHI4P if you want to order the Polyurethane Finish.
