- Scott Cole - Scott is a well known fitness instructor who
is a regular on television and has appeared in over 300 publications.
His Tai Chi credentials aren't quite so stellar and his Tai
Chi is a nontraditional form. He will disappoint someone looking
for a traditional style... but may be just right for someone
who is looking for an easy style that can be practiced in a
space poor environment.
