Tui Na Lecture   -#25126 Instruction -
60 min.
 $24.95, 41 minutes

"Doctor Gordon Xu (Xu Guo Rong) demonstrates the combination of massage and physical therapy known as Tui Na.In his clipped and sometimes a little difficult-to-understand English he discusses  the principles and applications of this method. Besides lecturing he also treats members of the audience and it is in this part of the demonstration where the real education lies. Watch his smooth and relaxed technique. We feel that at least some knowledge of Tui Na is highly beneficial for Tai Chi and martial instruction in general. It certainly can't hurt and is often a tremendous help. Dr. Xu is well known and has served on the faculty of a number of Acupuncture colleges.

Liu He Ba Fa with Yun Yin Sen 8 Pieces of Brocade - DVD#25104
Susan A. Matthews MS.
$19.95 see clip

Susan Matthews, head of the Shanti School of Tai Ji, demonstrates one of the most famous of Qigong forms: The Eight Pieces of Brocade. She does this standing in front of a mirror so we get the benefit of a double view of each action. Her instruction is detailed but also has the informality of personal observations, how she felt a certain move, how she solves a problem in exection. Her instruction is clear and detailed. This is a very good approach to learning this 800 year old, treasured set even if you are trying for the first time.

About 27 Minutes
