      I was looking for a DVD to help instruct Tai Chi movements at home. The difficulty remains that the movements are somewhat complex, and for beginners, this is hard to follow. Even in most classes, there is not much explanation regarding steps. This DVD has the advantage of MANY repetitions of the same steps, so that you can do short segments over and over again until it becomes more natural. And of course, with a DVD, you can go back and forth to different sections as you need to. I would recommend looking at the "TIPS" section first, as this gives some basis on which to understand the movements a little better beforehand. The Instructor has a strong Chinese accent, but is understandable in English. I would have preferred a little more step-by step explanation of what each movement was; so a lot of it still is learning by mimicry.

      according to the department on aging, tai chi is the number one intervention to prevent falls in older adults. i bought this for my friend who's 'getting up there' as he puts it. he says that the video is easy to follow but the motions take time to learn as he is an 'old dog' and these are 'new tricks'.
