It is interesting to see how hypertext has gone from being a grand possibility to a never-finished chore. --Ted Nelson
Q: What I'm wondering is if anyone can recommend a video for Tai Chi...any references, interweb sites, books, videos or anything else...would be extremely wonderful. Thanks.
From a skiing discussion website:
"As for Tai chi chuan, I don't know what's the most popular style down under. I have read that there are world champion Chen style artists from there. Chen style is one of the faster and aggressive styles. Yang style is probably the softest and slowest style, and the one that has been distilled the most for western health comsumption. But don't discount it's application as a true martial art. Even the Chen style is still considered a soft internal art, focusing on internal energy cultivation.
Disski, there is an excelent Yang Style Short Form video that would get you started if your interested. It's called Tai Chi for Health, by Terrance Dunn, distributed by Healing Arts Publishing Inc. I think Wayfarer Publications carries this tape also. Later,

Wayfarer Publications that Ric B referred to
seems to have an extensive selection of tai chi
The library where I work has eleven tai chi videos. Can't really recommend any particular one. Haven't seen them all and don't know enough about tai chi to evaluate them.
