    Da ich bisher keine Form des Yi Jin Jing bei einem Lehrer gelernt habe, kann ich diese Version nicht mit einer anderen vergleichen.Da das Buch mit einer DVD kommt, kann man - mit vorhandenen Qi Gong Kenntnissen (oder auch Yoga, Pilates) - die dargestellte Form nachvollziehen und einüben.Die generelle Frage, ob ohne Korrektur von außen (Lehrer), eine derartige Routine fehlerfrei genug gelernt werden kann, kann ich nicht entscheiden.Aber sowohl im Buch wie auch auf der DVD werden auf häufige Fehler und deren Korrekturen eingegangen, so dass die Voraussetzungen fürs Lernen auf jeden Fall gut sind.

    I really like the setup of this Book/DVD training routine. I have been in pain for two decades, not so much now. While deployed overseas, I had my knee injured, I had my foot injured. I come home and I injure my back, then my neck. I tried to get back into shape, I tried returning to the workout routines that I grew up doing, that the Military taught me. I tried, and because of the pain, it was not possible. In a desperate last attempt to try anything, Several months ago I discovered Chi Kung aka. QiGong, I didn't believe that it would work, but I bought a book. About month later I bought a QiGong DVD on Ba Duan Jin "Eight Pieces of Brocade", and it helped. I no longer have to wear braces on my knees, my back may still be stiff, but it does not hurt all the time, my neck is better, I can now turn my head to the left without pain, I no longer dread what needs to be done. I purchased Yi Jin Jing, put in the DVD as soon as I got home, checked out the set up of the instruction, I started in on the book, and I must say that I am impressed with how well it is lined up, easy to follow, the book not only shows how to do the routines, but explains the common mistakes, and you can actually follow along with the DVD, reading the book as they demonstrate, then in a different section of the DVD you can get up and follow along. Being able to engage every style of learning method, seeing, hearing, and doing. I seldom give 5 stars to anything, so when I say that I love it, I mean, I recommend this to the people that I know, and who trust me. If you are looking for a low impact, high result workout, that is adaptable to your specific needs.... I would encourage you to give this a try. The layout of the book is easy to follow, the matching DVD flows with the book, and then goes on to allow you to be able to get up and follow along and do the routines too. I am so glad to have discovered these exercise routines, and I am very happy with the way the book, and DVD allow a person to learn and adopt to the needs of the users. I now look forward to doing the 20-30 minute routines, not because I enjoy working out, but because I get such good results from doing these Chi Kung "QiGong" routines.

    I am currently enrolled in a Qigong class that uses this set of movements. The book and the video are invaluable for my practice time at home. It allows me to recall each move exactly and to perfect my practice.This is a "must have" book for anyone practicing this set of Qigong. Its both clearly written and illustrated, and of course, the bonus is the DVD insert .

    Definitely several cuts above the average martial arts instructional material. Well done, and the video meshed quite well with the text. Looking forward to obtaining more volumes in this series.

    I recently purchased this and very much enjoyed the book, but can't get the DVD to play in English, only in Chinese. As the DVD starts there is a page that appears to be for language selection, but it lasts only a millisecond and the DVD begins without any time for me to try to figure out how to watch in the English version. If anyone can provide me with some help as to how to watch the DVD in the English language (step-by-step and dumb it down, please), I would be grateful. Thank you.
