  1. Great for beginners!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2019

    This is my first Tai Chi video. I did a lot of research before deciding to buy. From all the reviews and blogs I read this was the one for me. It is!! It’s great for beginners such as myself. I have only had it about a month now but am very much enjoying it.

  2. Excellent Introduction to Tai Chi 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Aug 2019

    We very much enjoy Dr. Lam's slow presentation as well as both front and rear views! Tai Chi is an excellent workout for both body and mind.

    Thanks very much!

  3. Great teacher, too soft to hear well 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2019

    I love the way Dr Lam teaches a beginner. He breaks the movement down and repeats it 3 times. He turns around so you can follow him from behind. I am enjoying the practice. I would award 5 stars for the lessons, but I wish I could hear better. Dr Lam is so soft spoken that even with my computer enhanced for loudest volume, I can't hear Dr Lam. Could it be the DVD? I've tried all the things I can for my computer.

  4. Want to Stops Falls 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2019

    I am an Occupational Therapist and took a video course taught by Ralph Denner COTA. Published by PESI. Ralph Mentioned Dr. Lam in his course. The course was only able to teach some very basic moves.

    Dr. Lam's beginner course is a great course with easy to follow demonstrations. The content is clear. I really find the explanations helpful. Hoping Tai Chi will become very popular in Evansville, Indiana. This is a more comprehensive beginners course. Can not beat the price point either. Great value!!

    Looking forward to a slow steady progression using Dr. Lam's easy to follow courses.

  5. Great for the beginner and as a refresher 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2019

    I have been doing Tai Chi for several years and was bored with the tapes I had. After watching several of Dr. Lam's lessons online I knew this was a fantastic way to learn the fundamentals. Dr. Lam's teaching style is great and the book is also very helpful, as well as informative.

  6. Beginners DVD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2018

    All I knew about Tai Chi was that it looked easy. Not so.
    With the "Tai Chi for Beginners" DVD it made it a lot easier. Even though I am just in the Second week of using the DVD, my balance has improved. Great Dvd

  7. using beginners dvd 5 Star Review

  8. Best Tai Chi instruction for the beginner and the elderly. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2018

    I find this video easy to follow for the absolute beginner as well as the elderly person. I am close to 85 years old and a beginner. I am able to follow Dr Lam's instruction. Through his persistent teaching style I can easily follow his moves.

  9. Best Instruction Available for Beginners 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2018

    This product is by far the best thought out and most meticulously produced tai chi instructional video available. The step by step deconstruction of every movement is exceedingly helpful to a beginner. Lavish amounts of time are devoted to repetitions and explaining the spiritual and philosophical underpinnings of tai chi.

    This product would deserve five stars if a helpful illustration from lesson two, that being a graphic with the position of the feet, be used thought the lessons not just for Parting Wild Horse's Mane. Such a graphic would really help with transition movements such as White Crane and Strumming the Lute as well as with the footwork for Repulse Monkey.

    Even so, we strongly recommend this series of lessons for every beginner.

  10. Love it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2018

    I was told to try Tai Chi for health reasons.
    I bought another DVD for another site and found that I had no idea how to do the moves.
    I found Tai Chi for beginners. I have been successful in learning the moves and I enjoy doing them. Dr. Lam is very good at showing and teaching the moves.
