Finding a real taiji ball is on my list of things to do very shortly.
Zenpony
The programs on this DVD contain around three hours of instruction, and it is easy to navigate to different sections with the menu system when you are learning.
Alain B. Burrese
Such an exercise also develops ones sense of touch and allows one to learn the skill of moving large objects effortlessly.

Disclaimer
I was sent this DVD for no cost to review it. Regardless, I have been purchasing and enjoying Master Yang's products since the early eighties. I would have purchased this DVD regardless. I also spend many hours reviewing and writing the reviews. If I wrote a one paragraph review, which requires very little thought and time, then my motives might be suspect. Bottom line. Master Yang is the real deal and his products speak for themselves. I've never heard any complaints about anything he has produced.

This DVD is a compilation of parts 3 & 4 of the video tape series covering Taiji Ball Qigong. Taiji Ball Qigong should be learned by everyone interested in Taijiquan. The patterns taught in this video are an integral part of Taijiquan movement. Persons already skilled in Taijiquan will recognize the basic types of movement covered in this video. There are many patterns that one does in the Taijiquan form that many students might not realize exist. While doing these Taiji Ball exercises I recognized patterns that I have observed when practicing the martial applications and forms of Taijiquan.

What is also wonderful about this DVD is that Ramel Rones and Kathy Yang, Master Yang's daughter, are two of the five students used to demonstrate the patterns. Ramel Rones has created and published Sunset Tai Chi, Sunrise Tai Chi and Tai Chi Energy Patterns, and he is obviously a very dedicated and serious student/teacher. I'm not aware of any DVDs by Kathy Yang, but she shows most ably that her father's skills have been passed on to her.

As I am a father as well, I must admit I got a tear in my eye when I thought of how proud Master Yang must be of his daughter.

"Taiji Ball Qigong courses 3 and 4" with Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming continues the learning experience that started with the first two courses on DVD 1 and the book that these two DVDs accompany. Owning the book and both DVDs, which constitutes four courses on Taiji Ball Qigong training provides one with a very extensive training resource for learning this lessor known practice found within Chinese Taiji and Qigong. The training with the Taiji Ball can strengthen the torso, condition the muscles, and teach the practitioner to use the mind to lead Qi. Additionally, it can enhance one's Pushing Hands ability and is a stimulating and interesting practice to learn.

The programs on this DVD contain around three hours of instruction, and it is easy to navigate to different sections with the menu system when you are learning. Course Three consists of 16 patterns of stationary and moving Taiji Ball wrap coiling. These include: vertical wrap coiling forward, vertical wrap coiling backward, horizontal wrap coiling clockwise, and horizontal wrap coiling counterclockwise. The instruction is performed by Dr. Yang teaching to the camera while inside a studio. This is the kind of instruction I prefer. Subtitles are present across the bottom of the screen, though I have no trouble understanding Dr. Yang's English. Some of the instruction has only Dr. Yang on screen, while most other times he has five students in the studio with him, and he makes points, corrections, etc. as the students perform the movements and patterns. Course Three is approximately 61 minutes long.

Course Four is approximately 112 minutes long, and brings the lessons from the first three courses together with applications, both solo and with a partner.

Taiji Ball Qigong parts 3&4 (listed as disc 2 in the search), will definitely lead to strengthening a conditioning your forms along with body and mind. This program is wonderful for any serious tai chi student interested in the next level of practice. The movements are easy to follow and are repeated often. They are also filmed from various directions and show five different people with
varied body shapes. I would have liked to see the forms demonstrated by beginners, elder players and people in less than prime physical condition. I would be interested in the directions and corrections that Master Yang would have to that group of people. Some of his corrections like, "pay attention to your root" will be understood by practiced students, but may not be so readily understood by people not familiar with tai chi forms and principles. Skill level on this DVD is listed and second level, (one-three levels available).

As with any real taiji, it is best to learn directly from a Master teacher and use the film material as a review and practice tool.

This course teaches patterns of stationary and moving Taiji.
VERTICAL CIRCLING

Forward Circling, Rotating, and Wrap-Coiling-Yang
Backward Circling, Rotating, and Wrap-Coiling-Yin

HORIZONTAL CIRCLING

Clockwise Circling, Rotating, and Wrap-Coiling-Yang
Counterclockwise Circling, Rotating, and Wrap-Coiling-Yin

There are solo and partner drills to develop coiling and neutralizing skills. I like that the patterns are repeated enough times that
you can follow along and develop a sense of flow. I used a child's beach ball in my living room to try out the techniques without breaking furniture in the small space available for practice.
