Tai Chi for Busy People with Keith Jeffery

The nine linked movements presented here benefit anyone who wants to learn a short tai chi sequence for meditation or relaxation, or just for fun.

By Richard Rosen

Terra Entertainment; 914 Westwood Blvd., Ste. 290, Los Angeles, CA 90024; (310) 264-2128; 83 min.; includes an instructional audiotape; $27.95

Jeffery calls his sequence of nine linked movements "the infinite nine," because each move can be repeated an "infinite" number of times before proceeding to the next. This program stresses the health benefits, rather than the martial applications, of the practice. Jeffery reviews and expertly demonstrates each move in sequence, all the while dispensing down-home philosophy and amusing stories. I would have liked a better exercise to locate and work with the gravity "center" in the pelvis, and some of his bent-knee twisting moves seem a little hard on the knees. But overall this is an interesting and enjoyable presentation. I recommend it highly to anyone who wants to learn a short tai chi sequence which can be used for meditation, relaxation, or just for fun.
