  1. Tai Chi Really Works! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2015

    It's amazing how moving slowly, with precise posture can strengthen your body. After just one practice I can feel my muscles are tighter and my energy levels rising.

  3. Indispensable 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2012

    This fills a big gap in the market. It's the best Tai Chi instructional DVD I've seen, and it's nice that it's based on the standard Beijing 24 form: probably the best place for a student to start.

    Pei's evidently got some background in Chinese Medicine but the instructional method here is thoroughly western-mechanical. And that's crucial. Overall, the instructional standard here is about the level of a Kathy Smith production, which I consider the apex in the fitness video market. To finally see it in a martial arts video is so refreshing.

    Basic geometric principles are explained at the outset. Every frame is described in terms of weight distribution, orientation, arm placement etc. at a rate of six or more points per move. And interspersed through these instructions are many key warnings and general reminders pertinent to the current posture. This is important stuff. I spent three years practicing Tai Chi before figuring out by painful trial an error that the foot needs to be oriented with the knee. Pei isn't two minutes into the introduction before explaining this, with the camera following to illustrate.

    Some DVDs tout multiple angles--- either on separate tracks or in windows for simultaneous play. That style of presentation is often less helpful that it might seem, however, and thankfully it's not the approach they've taken here. Instead, the camera angles track the instructional focus. So a frame can start from one angle and then switch through three or four others before it's complete, following the instructions that are being given by Pei. This must be a lot more work for the producers, (imagine the additional filming cost of three or four cameras, then the extra costs in editing and post-production), but the advantages are tremendous. The other production style demands a lot of extra work from the student; this doesn't. I've spent hours watching online video footage for angles on a frame that are given here "for free" by the skill of the production crew (along with Pei's seasoned consultation I'm sure).

    Also, kudos to Bodywisdom for making this video very affordable, too. At their price, I don't think there's a Tai Chi student on the continent that shouldn't have a copy in their DVD collection.

  4. I am New 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2012

    For over a month, I have been practicing Yoga and Tai Chi together. An event took place, where I had no time for the routines. So, my Tai Chi really slowed down. Realize the very first day I began, my energy and happiness went through the roof. No one would use drugs, if they just tried Tai Chi. I am now a firm believer in ‘Chi’.

    So, I lost out on my time with this, and will NEVER allow that to happen again. I felt like my old self. Tired, slightly depressed, anxious. I hadn’t even thought- maybe the Tai Chi will help! Started again, and again, in one day, I was new. Please, for yourself, your children, your life, buy this DVD. It’s incredible, and Master Chris Pei is simply an amazing teacher. His credentials are astounding.

    I see people in pain, with sore this, and hurt that, I see people without smiles, moving slowly, tired and feeling pointless. If they would just practice Tai Chi, they would be new people entirely, making better choices, working harder for their goals, the children will love it, everyone will benefit. Realize, if you live with others, your energy and attitude will influence them, and these ancient arts are truly capable of what the practitioners claim. Join them in a new body and mind, with new joy, and revitalized Chi! Great for the old who want less pain and more flexibility, great for the young who want to meet all their potential.

  5. Great Beginner DVD 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th May 2012

    Great product! It is as close to having a Tai Chi teacher in your living room as any DVD could hope to come. He does a great job of teaching the movements and repeating them several times so that your body memorizes them. It is easy enough for almost anyone to perform yet still challenging and relaxing enough to be appealing to anyone with a sincere interest to learn Tai Chi. Great for Beginners.

    Of personal note: I have fibromyalgia and a post surgical hip injury. I find many exercise DVDs to be either too aggressive or way too soft. This is perfect for me. I actually do the 10 minute warm up EVERY morning now--and in one month I have RADICALLY improved my flexibility and decreased muscle pain and stiffness. The leg strength I have developed from the balancing movements has gotten me to a place that my physical therapist stated that I no longer need pt for my hip! I have had great results from Tai Chi! This DVD was exactly what I needed to start Tai Chi.
