Beautiful, but mis-represented

"If I could return the Tai Chi: Passport to Health DVD I just purchased without losing half my purchase price because the only way a DVD can be veiwed is by taking it out of the cover and once you break the plastic sheeting, Amazon will only give you half the purchase price back....I would. Although the video recorded scenes of various scenic natural locations and the background music is nice, but certainly not exceptional, the DVD was completely mis-represented in their product description. The description from both the product page and the back of the DVD cover proclaims that one will learn Tai Chi, Tai Chi exercises and defensive moves. However, pay attention to the "Relaxation" part of the title and forget thinking you will hear and see someone teaching you anything about Tai Chi.
The DVD is one of those programs you might put on in the background to keep your cat happy while you are gone from the house. There is absolutely not a single word spoken during the entire hour. The opening seqence shows two men performing a complete Tai Chi set in a beautiful forest setting. After that, the scenes show lots of ocean waves, lakes, trees, etc. with the same men either standing still in various poses (this must be the exercise part) or cuts into the set mid-way then moves onto another scene.
If you want something to play on your TV as pleasant background while you work or relax, this DVD is for you. But, if you are thinking, as I did, that you are going to learn from a Tai Chi teacher about the form as well as the self defence aspect, forget it."
