TAI CHI Sun Style 73 Forms

Free first lesson

Combining two of the most powerful internal arts with tai chi, Sun Lu-tang (1861-1932) created an uniquely powerful style of tai chi. This style places great emphasis on Qigong (exercise to cultivate vital life energy), making it especially effective for cultivating internal energy, which in turn greatly enhance healing and relaxation. The 73 Forms is characterized by agile steps with smooth and flowing movements, like water in a river. 

Following an introduction to tai chi and of the benefits you will gain by learning the 73 Forms, Dr Lam will teach warm up exercises and the 73 Forms using simple and proven teaching methods. He will teach the forms from different angles — using close ups, repetitions and diagrammed illustrations while dividing each form into small sections allowing you to follow along with ease. Throughout the lessons, Dr Lam will explain the tai chi principles and the unique Sun style tai chi energy with throughout the DVD. 

Step-by-step comprehensive instructions

  1. SUN STYLE - 73 FORMS 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jan 2023

    Whether learning or practicing the Sun Style 73 forms, this is an excellent demonstration by Dr. Paul Lamb. His patient demonstration and delivery transfers to the patience I need to maintain in my Tai Chi practice. Thank you so much!

  2. easy to follow 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2022

    Learning Tai Chi from a video is difficult at best … this is well done and very effective …

  3. Great course without being in physical class 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2022

    I was surprised that it was Dr. Paul Lam whose lesson on Yang style I learned on YouTube. He was much younger then. I searched extensively on YouTube to learn Yang style and his lesson came up. He was thorough and easy to follow. Thanks to his lesson I enjoy now Yang style very much.

    After learning Yang style I wanted to learn Sun style and came across Dr. Paul Lam again. Without hesitation I bought DVD. He is again very informative, precise and easy to follow step by step. It is much cheaper to learn tai chi under Dr. Paul Lam's instructional DVD than attending class.

    I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who wish to learn Sun style tai chi.

  4. Tai Chi Training That I Can Understand 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2022

    Finally a training video that I can follow along and understand. Over the years I have had access to videos of other styles and none are this comprehensive and well produced. A great bargain and excellent reference for all students.

  5. Good DVD for learning 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Dec 2021

    Decent 73 synopsis of the 73 form. A little pricey, but good

  6. Wonderful DVD 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2021

    Dr. Lam is by far my favorite Tai Chi instructor. He has a tremendous ability to calmly explain and dissect a series of complex moves. Dr. Lam’s videos are well produced and quite thorough. I own three of Dr. Lam’s videos, and have only started on this one. So far it is wonderful and I expect it to be as good as the earlier videos that I have been learning.

  7. Well produced, easy to follow. Great learning tool 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2021

    I found this tape easier to navigate and follow than the Combined 42 Forms DVD.

  8. Sun Style 73 Forms DVD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jan 2021

    I have arthritis and cannot do many forms of exercise, but I want to stay active in some way, so I looked into tai chi. I took a class in person a few years ago, but now that is not a good option, so I was very glad to find these excellent DVDs. Short of being able to take an in-person class, these DVDs are the best way to learn. I can rewind and rewatch many times to see how to correctly do each form, and the video provides both front and back views of the movements. There is just the right amount of repetition, and you can always fast forward through parts you have become familiar with. Clearly Dr. Lam is extremely knowledgeable about tai chi, and he is also an excellent teacher. The videos are also well produced. All in all I am very grateful for this resource. I hope by the end of lockdown to learn many of the Sun-style forms. With tai chi, arthritis can't stop me!

  9. great for body snd mind 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2020

    Tai Chi is really a good all round exercise for your body and mind. This CD describes every move from all angles.
    I am a senior woman and it has helped my balance and it is a way to make you focus as you concentrate on each move.
    Dr. Lam is a god send.

  10. Review 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th May 2020

    It is a very good teaching DVD to have at home. He reviews the moves quite extensive to help learn them. The one suggestion I would make would be to be able to go from one set to the next without having to stop and go through the lessons in consequence. And if you could just pick which lesson you wanted a little easier. Over all it is a good DVD.
