Detailed Instruction on Several Postures

"This video is highly instructional as well as powerful practice. I agree with the previous reviewer that this video does not have a huge archive of postures. Master Milton, however, is a fabulous teacher and a great mind. He allows the viewers to not only hear the detailed instructions, but also to follow along and focus their attention on the movements, which is essential in practice."

"What I did not learn from the description is that this is basically a form of Qigong known as the Eight Pieces Of Brocade. The instructor spends a great deal of time explaining each movement, and then demonstrating each individual movement. Nowhere on this DVD is the entire series of movements shown together as the entire uninterrupted form so that the viewer can do them as one flowing movement. The viewer is instructed to fast forward through each explanation to do the whole set as a movement. Impossible.
Don't waste your money on this DVD. Instead I would highly recommend the DVD Eight Simple Qigong Excercises For Health by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming."

"This video is for someone who wants a lot of explanation on how to perform the exercises. He gives detailed step by step explanations and also coaches the three students on their forms as well. What I would have liked to see was a segment where the sequences were run without stopping and with minimal talking. This is a great learning tool, but I wouldn't use it in everyday practice."
