Movie Reviews

For new Tai Chi members only
Steve C. Yabut | PA USA | 01/17/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I only rated this DVD a 4 star because it is for people who have never taken Tai Chi. The title is a bit misleading. 6 forms aren't given. 6 movements are taught in one form, the simplified Yang form. As a person with intermediate Tai Chi experience I was hoping for expanded forms. This DVD is for a complete novice. As such, it is very good. The movements are given from the front, back and side so novices can easily copy the movements. Especially helpful even for an intermediate student was how the instructor pointed out common mistakes students make in the various movements. The lessons get longer as the student goes through them. The end of the DVD gives references to more advanced videos as well as Tai Chi movements for specific ailments. If you want to learn about Tai Chi without taking a class, this is a very good start. As a reference for more advances students, it is not really worth it."
Tai Chi - 6 Forms, 6 Easy Lessons (1995)

"I have reviewed 17 different Tai Chi tapes for beginners, this is by far the best. Dr. Lam presents the best form I have seen. Many other instructors abbreviate the form and movements, trying to make the learning experience easier for the beginner. I found this very confusing, especially when trying to join other groups. I just didn't know what correct form looked like. While my form is not perfect, everyday it improves with the Dr. Lam tapes. The training is provided through warm ups, class demonstration, individual demonstration, and Dr. Lam points out common mistakes made when learning a form. You are given views from the back, side and front. One after another. Learning Tai Chi can be frustrating. Dr. Lam has made it very easy for me."
Clear and concise

"This video is very well done. Excellent for beginners of tai chi. It is clear and easy to follow, with visual presentations from different angles. The moves are repeated, but not to death. I give this video the highest rating possible."
What I think about my Tai Chi CD
M. Kayatepe | Florida, USA | 08/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I previewed this CD by renting it before purchase, so there were no surprises. This CD is perfect for an aging grandmother like me, because it presents a truly beginning level of Tai Chi, and every move was possible for me, even though I am moderately physically handicapped, and need a cane for walking and balance. Dr. Lam gives a very complete demonstration of each and every move, and a very soothing manner of presentation. The CD is now a fixed part of my exercise program."
