i just love the step by step methods. and the expanations. it is really nice to just wake up and have tai chi at home. i am done before i would even arrive at the gym. tai is awesome because it is not about trying to conquer your body, it is about blending the mind and body and working together to achieve goals.

This is a good introduction to Tai Chi. It is great for the uncoordinated person (a category that I fall into) as he shows the arm movements separate from the steps.

At first I thought I was just uncoordinated, then I listened carefully as I watched I noticed several times he says "left" and means "right." He also demonstrates 'crane spreads its wings' with hand lowered to foot extended, then actually does it in the routine with opposite hand lowered to foot extended. THIS VIDEO NOT FOR THE UNCOORDINATED.

Years ago, I had one of David Carridine's Tai Chi's DVD, it was the best. I am very disappointed in this DVD, as there is too much talking. In David Carridine's there was no talking, as he took you right into the Tai Chi, which was fun, easy and relaxing. This was a waste of $15.00.

My boyfriend and I had recently started Tai Chi exercises w/ a step by step beginners video. We moved up to this one, and it was somewhat disappointing. We both got lost during the exercises, I went from flying swan to choking chicken! If he would have done opposite movements or a mirrored image, it would have been much easier. The AM work out is nice and simple though.

I'am sure Mr. Ross enjoyed fiming on location but a mirrored image of the instructor would have been more helpful. Better luck next time.

The moves were difficult to follow since the camera angle kept changing.

This video is very hard to follow if you are paying attention to his left and right commands. He makes several mistakes throughout the video. I spent too much time stopping rewinding and replaying. This make it very confusing!! You can not follow his body movements AND his voice commands. He frequently says "right" arm when he is referring to a left movement.

This is a wonderful DVD for my husband & myself. We're retired & wanted to do easy exercise. This provides it in the simplest way. Mr. Ross is concise, speaks plainly, uses terms you can understand. Mr. Ross also explains every single move & most importantly does it slow. We're practicing the FORMS portion of this DVD every single day. Once we feel we're ready, we'll then be moving on to the next section. This is a really GREAT DVD for anyone wishing to LEARN T'ai Chi. Try it...you'll like it.

Simply put, the moves are both explained and demonstrated well. He even puts some history and some imagination into his performing of the different moves. Then history isn't deep, the use of the imagination isn't complex, but the package is great for those just starting out.
