Tai Chi Videos for Beginners (Three videos for Tai Chi beginners. Each one feeds into the next in progression)
  1. EasyTaichi - This is the video I most recommend to beginners, seniors and people with health issues. The most important factors for novices learning from a video are that (a) the video be user friendly, and (b) that the form it teaches be both easy and convenient to practice in a small space. The Easy Tai Chi video was designed with these two criteria specifically in mind.
  2. Tai Chi - 6 Forms, 6 Easy Lessons - by Dr. Paul Lam. More advanced than Easy Tai Chi, it breaks down 6 fundamental forms from the Yang 24 routine into 6 lessons, with detailed explanation and repetition. The moves are presented in front and back angles, Dr. Lam commenting on the form. They are repeated several times and are relatively easy to follow for a beginner. Includes a 3-in-1 Qi Gong workout. Video DVD
  3. Once you have mastered the EasyTaiChi video and Lam's 6 Forms, 6 Easy Lessons, I recommend that you graduate to Dr. Lam's T'ai Chi: The 24 Forms (which comes in both Video and DVD) The Yang 24 is the most popular version of Tai Chi in the world. More Info on Dr. Paul Lam Videos

Fictional Tai Chi Videos

Twin Warriors - Jet Li portrays the inventor of T'ai Chi. A bit campy with elaborate fight sequences and not historically correct... but fun none the less. The film is filled with one fight scene after another. The final fight may be one of the best best endings and fight scenes ever for the genre martial arts films. All the fight scenes by the legendary Yuen Woo Ping (''The Matrix'', ''Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon'', ''Drunken Master''). Yuen Woo-ping, Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh. DVD
