Tai Chi cultivates the wisdom of the senses, body, mind, and spirit together. Practice develops ones’ ability to connect to the moment, thereby increasing the quality of life. It teaches us to tap into our chi or life force and achieve harmony. The principles of tai chi not only teach a fluid and dynamic system of movement for health and self-defense, but also, when applied to daily life situations, provide a guide for appropriate action. Maximum effect is achieved with minimum effort. Understanding the principles of tai chi makes personal application in ones’ life possible.
Elaine Waters began practicing tai chi in 1976 with Michael Gilman. In 1982 she began to train with Master Wm C C Chen, (author of Body Mechanics of Tai Chi Chuan), and Master Jou Tsung Hwa (author of The Tao of Tai Chi Chuan) She trained regularly in tai chi body mechanics, form applications, push hands, and free fighting with Master Wm C C Chen at Bloomington, IN workshops. She was certified to teach tai chi by Master Wm C C Chen in 1988, and began teaching in Springfield, MO.
From[masked] Elaine spent 4 months each summer living and training with master Jou Tsung Hwa at the Tai Chi Farm in Warwick New York. At the Tai Chi Farm Elaine had the opportunity to train and visit with the many famous tai chi teachers who taught there all summer. Jou Tsung Hwa taught Elaine Chen style tai chi forms, chi kung and push hands.
Elaine began competition at the national tai chi tournament in Winchester, VA. In 1989 Elaine won first place in tai chi push hands, in 1990 she won grand champion in tai chi push hands and took silver in yang style form. She was invited at that time to join the US Tai Chi Team and travel to Taiwan for international competition. November 1990, she won 1st place in push hands in Taiwan. She returned to national competition one more time in 1991 and again took first place. In 1992 she began to serve as a judge and referee at tai chi tournaments around the US. She also began to teach push hands workshops to practitioners of many different styles, at the tournaments. Her performances at these events are available through “A Taste of China” and Tai Chi Legacy.
