Movie Reviews

Just the Moves, Ma'am/Sir
DeClawed | 06/04/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"My mom recently attended a Tai Chi class at her local senior center. She asked if I could find her a DVD that would allow her to practice what she learned by watching those moves over and over again. I bought two DVDs: this one and Sunrise Tai Chi. This one only had 3 stars, the other, close to 5.

We tried Sunrise first and it was just too much for us--too complicated, didn't know where to start and too much esoteric discussion. For those who are really serious about learning authentic Tai Chi--both advanced moves and philosophies--I think that DVD would be great.

Then we put this one in and it was perfect for US. Just the standard set of moves that my mom learned in class, done slowly and repeatedly, talked through in both regular form and mirror form, depending on what's easier for the viewer to imitate. Yes, it doesn't have fancy production values, but when I go to a class in person, people open doors and everything isn't in soft focus either, so for me, this did not cancel out the fact that I found this DVD refreshingly easy to follow.

It depends on what you're looking for, therefore, but for those who just want to learn basic tai chi moves to do in a consistent, easy-to-watch- and-learn routine, I think this DVD is an excellent choice."
Great Must Have Tai Chi DVD
Steve Sturgill | Dallas,TX USA | 12/31/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Firstly to the other reviewers posted here take a chill pill. While I agree that there were a couple of minor guffaws in terms of some exterior noise and I think one time a door opened, there is really nothing offensive at all. The picture quality is very good and most importantly Sifu David Chang is a remarkable instructor who is both very inspirational and very gifted. The moves are learned SO easy it's a joke. A teacher like this is worth his weight in platinum, but seriously teaching like this is rare even on China dvds. If you want complicated look elsewhere. If you want to learn real beginning Tai Chi and get a GREAT workout BUY THIS DVD and his other DVD on Tai Chi For Weightloss."
Great instructor

(3 out of 5 stars)

"As the other reviewer said, the production quality of the video is poor (you can tell it was filmed in one take in what seems to be an acutal Tai Chi studio with a bathroom door in the background...also you can hear traffic going by outside). All that aside, the instructor is great, and in my opinion that's what matters. If you can just picture that you're in a classroom with this guy getting private instruction then it's not bad. He's very knowledgable and explains the moves really well. I felt like I got a good workout."
