Has anyone viewed the O-mei tapes by Tony Chen? If so, what did you think of them?

We carry five tapes from Tony Chen. The Baji Quan tape was a TC Media production. The four O-Mei tapes were produced by Sifu Chen's school and outline the curriculam for their school. TC Media did some post-production, but was not involved in the filming. You'll find the O-Mei tapes here. (http://store.yahoo.com/martialartsmart/omeikungfuvi.html)

The Baji tape focuses on one of Chen's specialities. It is a very powerful style, once implemented by the guards of the royal court and still used heavily by the Military. I haven't seen Tony teach this except in private lessons. I'd highly recomend this one. It is very popular, especially among Chinese, which is why it is also availalbe in VCD format.

The O-Mei series shows many of his students and coaches performing the forms from different angles. Each tape has several forms - the O-Mei curriculam fuses traditonal O-Mei sets, peppered with modern wushu like Nanquan. Since each video cover several forms, the breakdowns and applications are minimal, but there's enough to figure out what's going on. These videos actually have a lot of material, especially at $19.95.
