Having looked locally in my area I was unable to find an instructor. Following the DVD was like being in a class but right in my lounge room. It was obvious to see why Dr Lam is so well respected.

Our Tai Chi group is about to commence the 24 forms.
Jackie our instructor with a couple of other Tai Chi participants demonstrated the 24 forms for us and we were in awe.
We are all up for the challenge and experience and with the DVD for mid week practice I am sure we will master and enjoy the experience. Best of all any classes I miss will be covered by Dr Lam's DVD in detail and I will not fall behind.

Very clear and instructional. I like how moves are repeated several times so I don't have to rewind. Dr Lam talks as he moves which gives great verbal cues.

It is the best instruction of the 24 forms on DVD which I am practising every morning and my Taichi instructor was very surprised to see how much I improved with the 24 forms.
I am enjoying to practice by myself with DVD.
Thank you Doctor Lam.

I find the DVDs easy to follow, very helpful in learning the basics of Tai Chi. Learning to step forwards and backwards has been most helpful as has the repetitions of the forms. I am learning Tai Chi at lessons however being able to practise the forms at home with the DVD has been beneficial. I have much to learn and I love the feeling practising Tai Chi gives me
