Great Detailed Instructions
Brassy | Charlotte, NC | 11/16/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This provides the history of Tai Chi along with detailed instructions and views. Excellent choice for a beginner."
Good combination of History, Moves and Feeling
D. Bennett | 02/12/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Although I don't think this DVD is for the absolute beginner, it does offer a good introduction to some of the history of TaiChi, as well as give very good examples of the 24 and 48 pasture forms. I found the rear view images hard to follow until I decided to watch them over and over several times without trying to follow along. This had the added benefit of helping me to 'feel' the movements more than just intellectualize them. I also found the martial applications very informative. This may be titled "Simplified" but it would be very valuable for the intermediate student as well."
Works At Your Pace
R. Viar | Lees Summit, Missouri | 11/17/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an great video for the practicing or aspiring martial artist who is interested in learning more about the history and benefits of Tai Chi. The DVD provides an ideal format for individual instruction, using short, well-labeled chapters that include each of the various postures presented at a comfortable, learnable pace. Master Liang is an exceptional teacher who provides perfect presentation of the 24 postures in appropriate detail, at a variety of angles, including specifice inhale/exhale points throughout the form. Of particular value is his solo presentation of each posture, followed by the self-defense presentation countering an attacker. For those who want more, also included is the longer 48 posture form. A must-have to complete your library!"
