Fictional Tai Chi Video
  • 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. Two young men are taken in as boys by the monks of the Shaolin Temple. Jun-Bo is thoughtful and kind, but is easily swayed to misbehavior by the bullying, rebellious Chin-Bo. The young troublemakers are thrown out of the school after a fight with the entire school. They meet up with two young women who are part of a rebel band fighting a corrupt overlord. Chin-Bo joins with the evil overlord. Jun-Bo instead develops tai chi, with which he ultimately topples the overlord. 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
  • The Tai Chi Master - The best Tai Chi fiction film of all time. Directed by Yuen Woo Ping and starring Jet Li (One of Mike Sigman's favorites) A different release of Twin Warriors.
  • Swordsman II - Starring Jet Li and Brigitte Lin. Mike Sigman's Favorite Tai Chi video "I pick up new little tidbits with each watching" Mike Sigman. DVD.
  • Drunken Tai-Chi - The good guy learns Tai Chi and overcomes the hard style bad guy. A young man gets in a scuffle with the town brat. He ties up the local bully in fireworks factory and accidentally sets the fireworks off. The bully's rich father hires a professional assassin to get even. After the good guy's family is killed, the young kid ends up living with a crazy old man and his wife. When the killer catches up to the young kid, the kid escapes and then learns the Tai Chi to counter the killer's hard fighting style...and eventually kills the assassin. Great fight scenes. Directed by Yuen Woo Ping and starring Donnie Yen DVD
  • Tai Chi II - Self-taught Tai Chi fighter helping Chinese revolutionaries Directed by Yuen Woo Ping and starring Jacky Wu DVD, dubbed, subtitled,
  • Secrets of Tai Chi - It starts out with documentary film clips of Chen Xiaowang, one of the most famous of Chen style Tai Chi Chuan masters, whose lineage is from the Chen Family, creators and preservers of Chen Style Tai Chi Chuan. Additional documentary clips of other famous Tai Chi practitioners are also edited into the body of the film. The video itself is basically a low budget Hong Kong film with unknown actors. But it carries on with touches of humor and style. It contains quality fighting scenes without resort to wires. The plot is rather simple. The bad guys kill the hero's father and he extracts revenge for the killing. If you are looking for plot... this won't be your cup of tea... but if you have an interest in Tai Chi... and want to watch related fighting sequences... you want to see it. The language is Chinese with English dubbing video, DVD
