History in the Making, Zenpony (Amazon reviewer) June, 2010
At first, I put this set aside to watch later because it is so long and has so much information. How silly! It has so much information. A must for any serious student of Chinese Martial arts. I have studied taiji for many years. My first teacher always spoke with love about his teacher Master Jou, Tsung-Hwa. Imagine the connection I felt after seeing this rare footage. This DVD set is a gem. Like fine jewelry, if it's not in the budget to buy it for yourself, put it on your wish list and receive it as a special gift.A Must Have for Any Yang, Jwing-Ming Fan, Andy J (Amazon reviewer) February, 2010
This DVD set is a great celebration of the works of Dr. Yang-Jwing-Ming one of qigong's most sought after masters. From his humble beginnings to his creation of the YMAA to his ultimate creation of a monk like training setting he has created in the mountains of California, Dr. Yang has been a pioneer in spreading the benefits of qigong to the world. A majority of this DVD set is demonstrations of his students at various retreats over the years performing various tajiquan exercise, with different weapons, and with partners on occasion. Very cool to see a lot of forms packed into one DVD set. There are also some interviews with Dr.Yang and even with his old masters! A must have for your collection if you are a fan of YMAA, Dr.Yang, or just enjoy and appreciate watching different forms performed masterfully!25 Year DVD, K. Hunter (Amazon reviewer) September, 2009
I have been a fan of Dr. Yang since about 1985. I have read many of his books and have several of his DVDs. I however do not live in an area where he has a school, so receiving these DVDs was a real pleasure. The DVD starts with a backround look at Dr. Yang's personnel history and has many pictures from his life in Tawain. There are several interviews and lecture moments that give you insight into this man's dream. The video footage is mostly of demostrations that his school has done throughtout the years and was a real pleasure to see. For anyone interested in seeing authentic traditional CMA take a look at these DVDs.
