    Easy Enough

    I bought this set after coming to the conclusion I wanted to know more about Tai Chi. This is by far not an advanced set. In fact I was quite relieved when I put in the DVD. Though the australian accent maybe a bit difficult for some people it sounded clear enough that I didn't have issues understanding what they were saying. The DVD does seem to move a bit fast if your not accustomed to this type of instructon. However you can review each as many times as you need since its on DVD. Over all I really enjoy this. I have yet to really sit and look at the cards.

    Tai Chi for Dummies

    I absolutely love this set! I saw it in the discount section of the store and bought it because of the flash cards - it was worth every penny. I am mentally challenged when it comes to having to physically follow someone, whether it's aerobics or Tai Chi. I watched the DVD once and realized I had the same problem with this set - BUT - once I pulled out the flash cards and it made all the difference in the world. The warm-up exercises are perfect if you are in really bad shape from working in a call center where you can't move from your desk. They are easy on the body, but make you feel like you've worked out at the gym. The joint loosening exercises help you get the feel for the flow of Tai Chi form. For the first time ever (and I have several Tai Chi DVDs at home I wasn't able to use) I could learn the movements without losing my place or trying to rewind to catch it again. I took the flashcards and learned each card until I felt comfortable doing each movement. Then I started combining the movements from one card to the next. Over several days I was able to put part of the Tai Chi form together from the flash cards and actually follow the DVD. I'm really excited about getting to the point where I don't have to look at the cards anymore! The package is excellent for anyone who has trouble following other people's physical movements. The flash cards not only have pictures of each of the different movements within the part that card explains, but the directions on how to move your body are written in words so if you can follow directions well enough to bake a cake, you can follow these instructions. This is definitely a 'must buy' if you want to learn Tai Chi, but don't have anyone around to help you.

    Hard to follow

    I agree with Valarie. I had a hard time following the movements.

    Somewhat good

    Descriptions and explanations are good. Difficult to follow images when they are turning right and it's your left. Not good for the uncoordinated or mildly coordinated. A mirror image would help tremendously. I returned the book and DVD.
