- 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. Once you have
mastered the EasyTaiChi video I recommend that you graduate
to Dr. Lam's videos.
