"First of all, my deepest gratitude to you for introducing me to the marvelous art of Tai Chi. I very recently purchased your 6-form Yang DVD (DVD is definitely the way to go, please transfer more of your videos to that format!!!) I have practiced different forms of yoga for years and even some Qigong exercises but none of them have given me the wonderful feeling of soft flowing qi and a still mind like practicing your simple 6-form Yang style! I sense that this is the beginning of a journey for me into learning this wonderful art and I look forward to purchasing more of your videos as my skills progress...Thanks again! With sincerest respect" Mark Stackhouse
"...Your "6 form" learning format is EXCELLENT. Just the flow of the "6 forms" video is so easy to follow and I do not have to continually stop and reverse the tape....after the "6 forms" tape, I was enthusiastic to go on?thanks for making the tape "6 forms" ...it was not the first Tai Chi tape I bought and it is definitely the best." - Celia Dozois Rochester MN, USA
"In my opinion the "6 Forms" DVD is one of the best introductory resources available to Yang Style Tai Chi. Master Lam & students methodically breakdown the most fundamental postures from the larger & more complicated Yang 24 sequence. The teaching method is first class. Dr. Lam provides brief explainations without being too conceptual or"flowery" to get in the way of understanding the movement.
Repetition is key to the success of this DVD. Each posture is carefully broken down and repeated several times. This process does work and the form will eventually "sink in" to your body"s natural memory. The excellent "gentil warm up" and "Qi Gong wind down" at the end are an added bonus. As a student of martial arts for many years I highly recommend this title to anyone interested in learning the basics of Tai Chi. This is a worthy investment in your health.
One thing I truly love about this form is that you can do it in VERY little space & time. I manage to squeeze practicing this form several times into daily routine no matter where my travels might take me. It"s a real gem and I am grateful to Dr. Lam & his students for doing such a fine job on this production!
My final advice is to just get up off the couch and try it - your body/mind/spirit will love you for it." Adam Tinkoff, Brandon, Vermont, USA

I told my husband I would order a video to learn Taichi. And he remembered seeing a Taichi video in our video/CD/DVD collection and it turned out to be Dr. Lam's Easy Six Forms. We don't even remember where it came from. We did not buy it. Is must be someone gave us at some point. Who knows! Using my mom's words, it dropped from the sky. It
is a gift from the god in heaven.
I started follow the Six Forms DVD ( Feb?) daily and found out I felt a lot better after three or four weeks. And I do not need Mobic for pain any more. As long as I practice the six forms for 15 to 20 minutes in the morning, the pain and stifness is a lot lighter. Even the warm up exercise helps. ( I do warm up exercise for 2 or 3 minutes in my office during that 10 minutes break between classes.)
Seeing the result in such a short time period, I decide I want to learn more from Dr. Lam since his way of teaching and explaining the movement made it pretty easy for me to learn something that I had no clue.
