"I started 24 Taichi two years ago, I bought several DVDs but I did not found substantial elements on fighting applications, since I bought your e-book, it gave me a new light in my daily training, thanks a lot."
--- Maurice K. France ¨C October 2006

"I always thought that a DVD is the best way to start learning Tai Chi without any teacher beside, but your e-book is quite well done, even though I have already a DVD on 24 Form, I can view picture after picture, and I agree with Henry, the applications are precious in our training."
--- Peter W. Holland - October 2004
