"The DVD arrived safely last week - very quickly, and just what I was hoping for. Thank you. Having just started Tai Chi, I was searching the internet for a routine similar to the one we were being taught, and found Angela on I think You Tube. My son managed to track the DVD down to Australia, and from then came my order. I have some friends just started and have directed them to the video on the internet, and I shall tell them how easy it was to buy the DVD. Many thanks for the prompt service"Allison Dunlop, UK
"I got the DVD with the 18 forms Qigong DVD today. I already practiced with it and It is great! I also got the complementary video of the 24 forms I wanted as a bonus! That was so kind of you, I want to study that form next after I have the 18 form down to memory. I really like your video's of the 18 form and 24 form movements. The soft music is great and the captions under the picture help me to memorize the name of the movement while I practice" Stacy Ladzinski, US
"Danny, I received the 2 DVDs yesterday. They were just as described. Great service and fast delivery. This will make learning 48 form much easier! I have a good teacher but practicing at home with Angela's video will mean I do things correctly from the beginning. Thanks again. When I'm ready for another form I'll check your website for more DVDS." Georgia Caraway, US
Tai Chi: The 42 Form
"Combined 42 Form with Angela Hsu Cantafio"
This second video is the natural progression from Angela's first production, "Tai Chi: The 24 Form".
The Combined 42 Form is even more complex and interesting. We took great care to offer you a complete new Tai Chi practice session including extended warm-ups and cool down with the Lotus qigong.

The Combined 42 Form is the standard for modern competitions. It is a beautiful sequence combining elements from the main four styles of tai chi: Chen, Yang, Wu and Sun.
The 42 Form presentation consists of brief walk-through instruction, and practice segments in front/back/side view with movement names spoken in either English or Chinese.
Angela's masterful play of Tai Chi is filmed in Sydney, Australia under dramatic changes of light and shade on a cloudy afternoon. A bonus "Duo Play" featuring Pansy Hsu at the young age of 80 is filmed in Pansy's magical garden in Hawaii.
Total Play Time: 75 min Video Format: DVD 4:3 PAL or NTSC Language: English (form names also spoken in Chinese/Mandarin)
Subtitles: English (form names only)

"I really like the outdoor settings you've chosen, so much more appealing than indoor gymnasia and competition scenes. It's a bonus to have the warmup and cool down sequences, they're quite valuable on their own. I think this is a beautiful example of Tai Chi as 'moving meditation'.
You look totally absorbed, ego-less. You exemplify centredness, stillness in motion. You seem to withdraw deep inside yourself, so that the Taiji just flows through you unimpeded. I guess this can happen only if you know the sequence very well, underlining the point you make about the importance to students of regular practice. To me you don't appear to be DOING the form so much as just letting go to the point where you allow yourself to become a medium of its expression." Richard, Sydney
