I have taken one tai chi class, but rely on DVD's to learn additional forms and to practice. I found this DVD very difficult to follow and have not been using it. To learn Yang short form, I recommend Dr. Paul Lam's DVD (revised version)--thorough with lots of repetition and the tai chi DVD produced by Body Wisdom Media.

This DVD is not for beginners. Yes, it repeats things, but it assumes that you already should know positioning of hands, feet, body, and different phrases the instructor uses. It does not describe how you should position your hands especially, or your body, it just begins, saying "body 50/50 (what does that mean??), shift weight to left...." A beginner DVD needs to begin instruction step by step and describe everything. I learned more from a 10 minute segment about Tai Chi on the Veria channel.

This is probably the worst "instructional" video I have ever seen.  If you want to be more relaxed, do not purchase this video because it will make you want to punch someone.  The instructor says one thing and does another. I get that this is the "mirroring" style, but he is not consistent with his terms which leaves you very frustrated as there is no introduction to even explain why his terms change and what they mean.   You can't just watch and copy either because some idiot decided that it was cinematic flair for the camera to move further and further away from the instructor. This means you CAN NOT SEE HIS FEET so you can't copy his moves.  The guy has black shoes, is standing in SHADOWS and the camera moves away from him. WHAT? I mean you buy this thing so you can copy his foot movements and some moron filmmaker pans the camera so you can not see the only thing you really DO need to see.  It's absurd and a waste of money.  I'm now just angry so that worked out exactly opposite of what I was looking for.  Do yourself a favor, skip this DVD. Just bash your head into the wall, it will be faster and cheaper.
