These movements are perfect for practicing in a small space, at work, on vacation, anywhere you can move within 4 or 5 feet of space. They are also taught to be doable in a short period of time. Practice one or two moves for 5 minutes, or do an entire set in 20 minutes. Unlike longer, traditional Tai Chi forms where you memorize 24, 48, or even 108 movements in sequence, these exercises can be done at random amounts of repetitions, in many various orders and are not considered wrong it you do them out of sequence. The video is filmed with the Chief Instructor David-Dorian Ross and some of his senior students and assistant teachers. The students are of different ages and body types. Mr. Ross has a clear, pleasant voice and a soft way of explaining movements as he mirrors you and talks you through each part. His speech is none aggressive and non-martial in tone, so it is very calming and relaxing to follow along. Some of the words he uses are: sway arms like a willow tree blowing in the breeze, gather, center and ground your energy, no rush, no particular time to complete, keep moving, keep breathing, keep smiling. He also describes movements like float and sink, rise and fall, open the door, melt and drift, gather energy to the heart space. In one movement, he talks about holding a butterfly gently in a loose fist, sneaking the elbow out so you can swing open the arm, open the hand and release the butterfly. That description made me smile. I have taught tai chi and kung fu for twenty-five years and know that the movements he is showing all have martial arts application. In my martial arts class I might teach that same move as parry and grab the incoming punch, rotate and joint lock, give an elbow strike to the sternum and break the nose with a palm strike. So much more calming to do the movements on this DVD with the pleasant background music. This material is perfect for beginners and people looking for easy movements that can be done any time of day or night and you don’t need equipment or a gym. The lessons end with this tidbit: The Secret of Tai Chi is that it doesn’t stop, it keeps on rolling. All you have to do is buy the DVD, turn it on and follow along. Geared toward beginners, but it is also an way excellent for the more experienced martial artist to calm down and relax into the practice.
