I did find it useful for working with a group of mild mentally and physically challenged individuals. That is not to suggest that this would be the only people who would benifit form it.
It also introduces many of the core concepts of Tai-chi in a very basic and easily understandable way. Some of the demonstrations could use a bit more narration to reinforce the correct focus and performance of the movements. Espically when the actual fundamentals form itself is demonstrated.
This version has now allowed me to pick up the fundamentals of the Cheng Man Cheng form. It is the best form for energy circulation. This Fundamental Form is very short but it includes most of the major moves of the original form. Tricia is a very good teacher. She does not expect a student to actually learn the form from the video alone, but I had no trouble in re-learning the form that I had not practiced in many years.
