Grandmaster Kao Tao (高濤) was the first tai chi teacher of Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming in Taiwan, starting in 1962. His tai chi lineage can be traced back through Yang, Cheng-Fu to Yang, Lu-chan.
5 of 5 stars, S. Schmidt
The greatest benefit of this DVD is that Grandmaster Kao introduces age-old exercises that are done from a seated position, clearly illustrating the possibilities of introducing beneficial qigong concepts and exercises to those people that are physically restricted to other more rigorous forms of exercise. There is no reason that these twelve movements and six breathing techniques cannot be introduced into nursing care facilities across the globe. Grandmaster Kao's performance clearly illustrates the effectiveness of routine practice of these exercises. As a man in his eighties, his overall range of motion, mental clarity, and even sense of humor are atypical of many westerners in his age group.Improve and Maintain Your Health with This Simple Qigong Routine, NorthStar (Amazon reviewer) June, 2011
Through Grandmaster Kao, Tao, YMAA Publications have given qigong and martial arts instructors a toolkit that can be (I even say, should be) used to reach and appeal to an age group that is often forgotten or not even considered for qigong training. It is not too late!
Qigong for Longevity - at 50 minutes in length - is a short, compact DVD program offering simple and easy qigong exercises that can be easily learned and practiced by almost anyone. The entire sequence takes about 30 minutes (depending on repetitions) and can easily be incorporated into one's schedule. It is suitable for practitioners of all levels, including seniors and those of us with limited mobility, flexibility and/or strength.
