Movie Reviews

Great, especially with some prior experience.

"I just finished my 5th session with this DVD and it is quite good. (I feel fantastic!) The title is somewhat confusing; there really isn't a 'wake up' and 'go to sleep' section, more 'body focused' and 'mind focused.' My only complaint is that some forms are introduced but not really explained... but since I'd taken an intro Chi Kung it was fine. David Carradine is not just a gimmic, his voice is very mellow and is a perfect accompaniment. Also good if you are looking for a Chi Kung workout, the 'mind' session feels almost exactly like what we did in our class."
Frustrating Camera Angle and Speed

"Not for beginners. I used to take Tai Chi, so thought this DVD might get me going again at home. It didn't because it's hard to use. In class, beginners are put in the middle, so they always have someone in front of them to mimic. This DVD is filmed like an aerobics video--as if you are in front of the class watching them. As a result, "right" and "left" are the opposite directions for you and the people on screen. It would be better if it was filmed as if you were IN the class. There are some reverse angle "picture in picture" parts that attempt this, but I found it to be very difficult to mimic the movements and keep up--especially in the full form. Footwork is key, yet some shots do not show what the feet are doing. I also think the movements should be slower, or at least have a slow runthrough and then a "normal speed" one. Finally, it would also help to have an overhead view or some instruction which notes which direction to move. Some steps seem to be moving off on a 45 degree angle which helps when you realize it.
Review of David Carradine's AM & PM Tai Chi Workout For Begi

"Essentialy this is the DVD version of the videos "David Carradine's Tai Chi For The Mind" and "David Carradine's Tai Chi For The Body", with extra features that make this more than worth the repetition! Buy it just for the extras if you already own the aforementioned videos."

"For me this DVD is an AM Workout. When I worked out at night I was up most of the night. I simply could not fall asleep. It really seemed to energize me. I didn't put the connection together until after 3 workouts.

I'm a beginner and found the DVD very enjoyable, even fun & not hard at all. After following along about 6 times I found I really enjoyed the option of doing it without the verbal instruction. That's the best! I love having that option. It's very peaceful. Also, I enjoyed watching and following the women behind David Carradine. They're great! I can only aspire to the level of the Asian master who is also featured on this DVD. All in all, this DVD was well worth the money."
