    5Keeps you interested while teaching the fundamental principles
    By T. Yemm
    This DVD offers the beginner a way to understand the principles that are essential to Tai Chi practice whithout being overwhelmed. Simple practice sessions with this DVD allow the practitioner to make measurable progress in their own Tai Chi. The demonstrations with the mirrors make this by far the easiest DVD to follow that I have tried. The simple instructions in posture and breathing are enough to make this eries worth it. Consider the companion book as weill since it has some extra warm up exercises that are fun and challenging.

    5Beginner's Joy
    By HJS
    As a newcomer to Tai Chi I found this video extremely helpful. Ticia Yu illustrates the movements both facing you, which some criticize but is important for being able to view the hand movements accurately, as well as with her back to you. It is simple to review with the guided practice section at the end even if one has only a small portion of time. The format of the DVD is sensible and easy to follow. My only criticism is that Ms. Yu is extremely flexible and one must not attempt to imitate her rather too large foot movements as a beginner. I would highly recommend this video.

    3Basic Tai-chi Movements
    By AUGUST Korn
    This is a good entry level DVD for a few basic Tai-chi movemnts, but not an actual complete Tai-chi form.
    I did find it useful for working with a group of mild mentally and physically challenged individuals. That is not to suggest that this would be the only people who would benifit form it.
    It also introduces many of the core concepts of Tai-chi in a very basic and easily understandable way. Some of the demonstrations could use a bit more narration to reinforce the correct focus and performance of the movements. Espically when the actual fundamentals form itself is demonstrated.
