As a last point and small pet peeve, Koreans actually pronounce TaeKwonDo just as it looks with Tae sounding like Day not Tie. I think this got confused with Thai kickboxing early on and just got spread that way.
In summary, if you want good production quality, go sit on the couch and watch Titanic again. If you want to learn self-defense, go to a martial arts class. If you want an excellent series of workout videos, buy Tae-Bo.
I must say, I'm not sure buying the four-pack tape set was necessary. I used the Instructional Tape once. The information contained here is important but if known beforehand, owning the tape is a moot point. The gist of it is, don't overextend your joints while kicking and punching.
I've used the 8 minute workout when I get up late in the morning. However, I almost wish I didn't have the option as it creates greater opportunity to slack off. 8 minutes really isn't enough to get your heart rate up to a point of significance, in terms of exercise.
The Advanced Tape is really hard! Also, this one tended to hurt my knees. There are some lunging moves, and a whole lot of floor exercises that require you to kneel for lengthy periods of time. I think the decision on whether this tape is a good investment really depends on the level of activity you are looking for in an exercise video. This tape is long and strenuous, but I'm certain if you use it regularly you'd be very fit. Personally, I've never found the time commitment or the desire to use this tape more than a couple times.
Tae-bo Basics I would rate as five stars. Buying the four pack really depends on individual interest, I can only offer my experience with the pack. On a side note, the music is pretty goofy, but I like Billy's positive attitude.
