The 73 Forms is characterized by agile steps with smooth and flowing movements, like water in a river.

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.

  1. Sun 73 - really long form 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2020

    Typical Dr Lam instructional video. Unexpected were the differences in the postures in this Sun Family form and the Tai Chi for Arthritis postures -- same names, small differences. The Lam full form demo portions have small differences in foot and hand details from the step by step teaching portions. Not a big deal and it will take me a while to master all 73 postures.

  2. Essential for my learning 73 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2019

    I love 73. It is challenging. And I don’t know how I could really confidently learn 73 without the DVD. Dr Lam is a great teacher. He breaks it down. Everything is included. I like being able to stop-start-rewind to tease out the details. Highly recommend.

  3. Follow-able Form 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jul 2019

    Living in a remote area I was looking for a video I could actually learn the form from. Of course a teacher is ideal but I don't have one at this time. Other's videos I've tried just weren't carefully enough thought out and produced to make the moves clear enough to follow. This one works much better. Dr. Lam is very concise. The only thing I don't like is the intrusion of the Aussie gentleman loudly prompting me to "follow Dr' Lam" This is entirely unnecessary and an unwanted distraction. Otherwise very well done. Thank you!

  4. Very detail and well explained 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2019

    Nice dvd very detail and different view angles ....the only thing i wish can turn off is the guy that says follow doctor Lam lol...

  5. Very thorough instruction in Sun73 form! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2019

    This DVD has video segments showing each movement in detail, and then as movements are repeated later in the form combines movements already performed into the same segment with new movements. This is great because you aren't wasting time with in-depth instruction on a movement you've already learned.

    I also love that Dr. Lam features his preferred style of the Sun73 movements, but for difficult movements also shows a simpler style you can do as you gain flexibility and balance. For other movements he will also show alternate versions that are higher difficulty and risk, in case you have come across these versions from other instructors or watching competition forms on YouTube, and then explain why he prefers his version.

    Overall I have very much enjoyed learning with this DVD!

  6. Sun Style 73 forms 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jul 2018

    I love, love this DVD! It contains many forms which are quite challenging. I look forward to practicing it almost everyday. I still have a lot to learn but more importantly, the 73 forms help me focus so I am able to execute the present form and prepare for the next. I also feel my inner stabilizers and memory have improved.
    Thank you, Dr. Lam!

  8. the 73 form 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2018

    The 73 DVD is good , it would be much better if there was
    a Handbook that gives you an outline of the complete
    73 from.

  9. Fantastic!!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2018

    Dr Lam is simply the best instructor bar none. He is easy to follow and teaches in a very effective way that forces you to learn in a step-by-step manner that is fail proof.

  10. met all expectations 5 Star Review
