Welcome to Tai Chi Sword Form with Elaine Waters.
Here you will find the secrets of Tai Chi explained through the dynamics of Body Mechanics. The Body Mechanics of Tai Chi provide the link between the esoteric Tai Chi principles and modern physical fitness, resulting in movement which
uses minimum effort to achieve maximum results.
Elaine Waters takes complex and potentially esoteric concepts, and delineates them into simple, easy to understand ideas.
Elaine Waters shares her deep understanding of Tai Chi principles, and tai chi body mechanics, aided by years of study
with her famous Master, William C.C. Chen, who taught
her this tai chi sword form in 1987.
This lineage of Tai Chi follows the training pattern set by Master Chen Man Cheng: training in Form, Sword and Push Hands. Master William C C Chen learned from Chen Man Cheng and added a clear description of Tai Chi Body mechanics and Form Applications. Master William C C Chen taught Elaine Waters starting in 1980.

Tai Chi Push Hands brings players together to share
neutralize, adhere, connect and push!
Learn how to apply tai chi body mechanics in pushing hands.
In Tai Chi, the upper body is trained in softness, so we can stick
and initially blend with opponents direction. The upper body movements are not generated using muscle tension!
Be as still as a mountain, and move like a great river...
in tai chi push hands!
Tai Chi is based on a system of non-aggression. Tai chi uses leverage, yielding, and softness to allow the opponent to lose their own balance!
As an International Push Hands tournament
champion in 1990, Master Elaine Waters has proven the effectiveness of these concepts.
In tai chi push hands, we attempt to put into action,
the strategies of the Taoist classics.
Softness overcomes hardness, doing less is more,
and we use minimum effort to attain maximum effect.
Push hands emphasizes the value of yielding and relaxing,
and the disadvantage of resisting and using tension.
Push hands trains the ability to read and interpret external force.
