A wonderful documentary about Tai Chi, and its benefits, that I watched a while ago. I thought the story was well presented, with the right mix of professional interviewees and non-professional. I thought the interviews were well done, and the style was good, which I think is important when you are trying to make a documentary. The documentary follows the life of Tai Chi master Sun Liao and his granddaughter, who are a part of the World Tai Chi Federation. Sun Liao is a master who lives in a secluded home and teaches Tai Chi to his students. He is the reason why I'm a huge fan of Tai Chi. He has a great sense of humor and sense of humor, and is a master at teaching Tai Chi. Sun Liao teaches Tai Chi with his granddaughter, and their relationship is the backbone of the film. I was pleasantly surprised at the interviews, and the style of the film. I think it was well done, and it gave a very good picture of Tai Chi, and the world of Tai Chi. The style of the film is very good, and I think it is good to watch, because it is a great documentary. I think this is a great film to watch, and it should be a great documentary. I give this film a 9 out of 10. It is a great documentary.

I was very surprised to see that I was not aware of this documentary. It has a very well structured plot that is very interesting and well made. It is not a documentary that is one of those documentaries that are just filler. I was not expecting a documentary that was just filler, but this one was very good. The plot is interesting and thought provoking. The camera work is very good. The acting was very good. The editing was very good. The filming was very good. The music was very good. This was a very good documentary. It is very good and very worth seeing.

This is the best thing I've seen on the History channel this year. I loved it so much that I want to watch it again. It's amazing how much time this documentary spends on the Chinese culture and how it relates to the idea of Tai Chi. It was amazing to see the history of Tai Chi and how it developed from the beginning to the present. The actors were all amazing and the story was interesting. The stories that they tell are amazing. If you are interested in the history of Tai Chi, this is a must-see.

I can't believe I never heard about this before. It's one of those documentaries that you can't just skip through. It is very well done. You can't take your eyes off the screen. It's a very, very entertaining documentary. I really enjoyed it. The main topic is the work of the Tai Chi masters. The masters are mentioned, the masters talk about their philosophy, the masters speak about their techniques, and the masters explain what Tai Chi is all about. It's fascinating, fascinating, fascinating. I didn't know what to expect, but it was so well done. I can't recommend it enough. I don't want to give away the story, but you have to see it. I'm already in the mood for Tai Chi. The movie is just perfect.

This is a very good documentary that takes you through a very interesting and meaningful journey into the life of a famous, martial arts star. The documentary starts off with a clip of the famous star talking about his training, his motivation and what it takes to be a top martial artist. This is followed by clips of footage of his interviews, his sparring sessions, his sparring partners, his training and the results of his training. The documentary then goes on to explain his training method and the reasons for his training. This is followed by his later training and his training with his partners. The documentary then goes into the reasons why he chose Tai Chi. The interviewees are mostly friends and acquaintances of the star, and all of them give their opinions and their feelings about the star. The documentary ends with a question and answer session with the star, and he answers a few questions. The questions are mainly about his training methods and what he is hoping to accomplish. The answer is interesting, as it is a very interesting and revealing answer. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in martial arts, or who has been interested in martial arts. There is a lot of information in this documentary, and the information is quite informative. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to learn more about the life of a famous martial arts star.

This documentary is a great work of art. It is well organized and contains interviews with many notable people in the martial arts world. In addition to this, the documentary contains a great deal of footage of Tai Chi and Tai Chi practitioners and their families. It is a great movie to watch.

For those who have a bit of knowledge of Tai Chi and the history behind it, I think this documentary is a great watch. It is a very well done documentary. It covers the history behind Tai Chi and the people who practice it. There is a lot of interesting information and great footage that is definitely worth checking out.

This documentary is well-done. It gives us a look into the life of the "The Professor", a Tai Chi master. The professor has lived for about thirty years in Taiwan, and he has lived on and off in the United States for most of his life. This film focuses on his personal life and his teaching. It tells us about his childhood, his early life, his education, his teaching, his passion for Tai Chi, and his passion for his work. This film is very interesting. I recommend it.

I've been wanting to see this for a while, and finally got around to it. It's an interesting look at the art form, from the perspective of a practitioner. The production value is great, the acting is very good, and it really gets you thinking about what makes Tai Chi so special. It's not an easy thing to explain, but I think it's a wonderful way to practice. All of the techniques are explained very well, and I was amazed at how the teacher and students went about it. They are really cool. I'm also glad that it was a self-contained documentary. You really don't have to see it to understand it. It's great to see a self-contained documentary. It was an excellent way to show the process and get the general idea. The self-contained nature makes it easier to learn from, and it makes it easier to compare and compare with other styles. Overall, I think it's a really great documentary. It's not a movie you'll want to see more than once. I think you'll find that it's worth seeing more than once.

I'm a huge fan of John Belushi and I really enjoyed this documentary. It was very informative and it didn't skip around. It was a great look at the whole Tai Chi thing and the people who practice it. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the Tai Chi and the Chinese culture. I don't know how they got the cast for the documentary but I'm glad they did.

I would like to say that I am a long-time fan of the Tai Chi videos, and I am also a huge fan of the Tai Chi art. When I saw the name of this documentary on the cover of the DVD, I was very excited. I was even more excited when I found out that it was directed by the same director of the first two films. Tai Chi's Journey West was very much like the first two films, with many elements from the first two films (although this one was a bit different in the way it was presented). The main reason I was excited about this film was that I was a fan of the first two films, and this was the first film to be made that I have seen that was a true tribute to the first two films. In the first two films, I really didn't understand what the movies were about. Tai Chi's Journey West was more of a history lesson than anything else. It showed how Tai Chi started, and how it evolved through the years, and how it has become a very important part of modern life in the US. The scenes in the film were very interesting. It was very interesting to see how people changed over the years, and how the early generations of Tai Chi became more of a physical exercise, while the later generations became more of a spiritual exercise. I really liked this movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who is a Tai Chi fan, or a fan of history. It is very much like the first two films, but I think the director did a great job in showing how Tai Chi has been changed through the years.

I had heard about the Tai Chi academy for years and it was always mentioned in the news. The news was always negative about the academy, but I have always wanted to go to it. I was fortunate to get a ticket for the last day of the academy, so I was able to go. I was blown away. It is by far the most well-produced and well-thought out educational program I have ever seen. There is no other program out there that has the level of respect and attention to detail. I highly recommend the academy. I'm going again for the next one, on the 25th. I've never been so thrilled to see a program of this caliber.

The whole film is worth watching. The story of the movie is inspiring, as it shows how Tai Chi became popular in the west, how it is used for fighting and how the knowledge of it is used in a practical manner. The knowledge of the technique is also very inspiring, as it shows how it can be used to save lives. The story of the movie is also very interesting, as it shows how Tai Chi is used by different people for different purposes. The characters in the movie are very well developed and the way they are portrayed is very inspiring. The characters are all likable and the actors are excellent in their roles. The only thing I could complain about is the length of the movie. It is too long, but if you watch it it will be worth it. If you watch it you will have a better understanding of Tai Chi.

I have been following the movie and also reading the book for the last 5 years. I am still a little bit confused about the ending. I was a little disappointed, I felt that the movie ended too soon, but it was a good movie to end my love for Tai Chi. Tai Chi is a very important part of my life. I had been doing Tai Chi for about 10 years and I would love to teach more of it to my kids. I would love to learn more about it and how it was done in Tai Chi. I know that I will be practicing more Tai Chi for my children. This movie is a must see for anyone who has ever been in love and it is a must see for anyone who loves Tai Chi!

I found the documentary Tai Chi's Journey West to be an excellent and engaging presentation of the practice of Tai Chi. The emphasis is on the physical benefits of Tai Chi, not on the philosophical content. The film is a joy to watch, and is a pleasant and inspiring story of the journey of a young man who has embraced the practice of Tai Chi. I was particularly impressed with the documentary's ability to portray the spirit of the ancient masters of Tai Chi, while also showing the physical effects of Tai Chi. The film is a must-see for anyone who is interested in the history of Tai Chi and its practitioners. The students and teachers of Tai Chi have been interviewed in the film and it is clear that they share the same passion for the art. This film is a wonderful addition to the growing body of film on Tai Chi.
