  1. Easy to follow Tai Chi instructions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2016

    Thank you Dr Lam for explaining the moves slowly and clearly. The diagrams and having more than one person demonstrating assists in doing the exercises correctly. I used to think Tai Chi was just a gentle exercise for old people. Coming from a background of doing Rock Climbing, Abseiling and Classical Ballet I have found it is a good workout. It helps me to stretch and warm up so I can avoid injuries when doing fieldwork. Many research students complain about having a sore back and knees from sitting down all day. Doing Tai Chi helps me to concentrate when I'm studying and avoid tense muscles in the neck, shoulders and face which cause headaches. It's convenient to have these DVDs because I can do these exercises when it suits me.

  2. couldn't be better 5 Star Review

    I am 75 years old and after having bought Tai Chi for Beginners and begun to put into practise the lessons by Dr lam I am delighted with the detailed and step by step demonstrations of the forms and I am looking forward to developing strength and fitness from the application of the forms.

  3. Easy exercise for beginners 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2015

    This is a very easy & gentle introduction to tai chi.
    Dr Lam first demonstrates the exercises and then breaks it down into easy to follow steps. As Dr Lam says himself, this may seem "not very exciting" but it does clearly set the foundations for an ongoing exercise program. I like the quiet and calm manner of instruction.

  4. Best TaiChi Lessons 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2015

    This is the best tai chi lessons. Dr Lam explained each and everything very clearly and in detail.

  5. Well done 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2015

    This DVD is so easy - wish all other tutorials were also as easy.
    I am slowly working my way through the DVD and trying not to tear ahead. It is right what Dr Lam says, to perserve and take it slowly - you get the best results that way.

  6. The best tai chi tuition 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2015

    Dr Paul Lam explains and demonstrates tai chi in such a clear, easy to follow manner that it is a pleasure to watch his classes, to learn new moves and practise them. I am very happy with this DVD, will purchase the next one when I conclude lesson 8, and heartily recommend it.

  7. WOW 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2015

    Life changing! wish we had done this sooner, feel the benefits as soon as you start.

  8. Best beginners DVD I have watched 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2015

    This is a very easy to follow, well presented beginners course.
    I have owned other Tia Chi DVDs but this is the only one that I can follow precisely and look forward to consistently play.

  9. Tai Chi for Beginners 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2015

    Easy to follow and at a good pace for beginners

  10. The best instructional dvd to learn tai chi foundations 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Oct 2014

    Dr Paul Lam's lessons on the six easy steps of tai chi are very clear and precise. I am enjoying re-learning tai chi foundations correctly even though I had learnt it 14 years ago! I find that now, I am really doing tai chi and not only completing the 'steps' of the form. I am enjoying tai-chi'ing every morning! The best medicine for my arthritic joints! Thank you Dr Paul!
