All Boats Rise

There are flashy styles and approaches to Taijiquan.

There are styles which favor subtlety.

The former are like large, impressive yachts.

The latter, like a simple fishing boat.

No matter how fantastic and expensive the yacht, it doesn’t fulfill its function without the water.

The styles of Taijiquan are like different types of watercraft.

Each has unique traits, essential to their essence.

A raft is not the same as a yacht.

Yet it is water which makes each truly functional.

The TaiChi principles are the key to any style of Taijiquan.

It does not matter which style you study, perfect, or prefer-

so long as the TaiChi principle is your true objective.

The TaiChi principle is like water.

If you have the principle, any style will be smooth sailing.
