Others feel they can snipe, slander and libel people and titter like little girls.
It is unacceptable behavior.
It is illegal to do these things in public and it should be the same way on the net. You want to post crap about people then you should expect to get in trouble for said remarks. In other words, you are responsible for what you say and do, and there are consequences for such actions.

Dale, your response is very reasonable. I was thinking you were going down the "I am going going to spring out this screen and get you" path.
I take the opposite approach, I stay relatively anonymous and try to make sure my comments are self contained and my arguments stand on their own merits.
I will go back to work and quit crapping up the thread!

Okay I admit that I posted some retarted stuff about Tai Cheng without knowing anything about it. I have done several searches on it over the past week and found surprisingly good reviews on it. I might even consider trying it to remedy any knee and back pain I get occasionly which further disgraces me for being a fucktard on the subject at hand.
I didn't know the guy on the picture was the "Tai Cheng" creator. I used to do alot of single leg squats similar to the picture but my knees don't agree with them anymore. I made an unedjucated statement based on that, evidently Tai Cheng isn't complicated poses anyway, sorry.

Is that a big kettlebell, or is Dr. Cheng really just tiny?

Any word on how long each daily workout takes? I'm thinking of adding this to my AM routine since I never get to work with my tai Chi instructor.

The program has you do a little pre-assessment before you begin the program to baseline your balance, posture, flexibility, etc, and then you can measure against that periodically or at the end of the 90 day program. I like that because there is less subjectivity ("Tai Chi makes me feel groooooovy..") and more hard data ("I was a 0 for this balanced position when I started, now I am holding it comfortably, which is a 3").
She finishes the program in another 6 weeks, and I'll report her results/improvements. She suffers from scoliosis and sciatica issues...and says this program is really helping her with her back issues.

13 discs for 18 postures? $120? Sounds like just a clever marketing stunt. The benefit claims are no different from regular T'ai Chi Ch'uan, and adding other exercises to a class is not exactly new either. And, most importantly, as was already stated, you cannot get proper instruction from a video. With the number of qualified T'ai Chi Ch'uan instructors around these days, a person's money would be better spent on in-person lessons. Tai Cheng is just a flashy gimmick.

Oh stop, of course it is about marketing. You didn't read the website, like the other guy, did you?
Tae Bo? TKD marketed and modified for health.
It was developed by taekwondo practitioner Billy Blanks
Kenpō X 1-13 Full Body Cardio
The original circuit training format was developed to help promote the sport of kickboxing through kickboxing for fitness.
Seriously, read the website, it is a workout based on Tai Chi. It isn't advertising "you will be a master," "learn Tai Chi like the masters" or "learn to fight with tai chi" like these products:
Let me clarify my point. This is designed to get you off your ass and get you working out for health. As you just pointed out, it makes the SAME CLAIMS as regular Tai Chi. So do most other workout based products on the market. That is it.
