Tai Cheng is a natural solution designed to rid you of many common aches and pains that may be holding you back from enjoying lifelong activity. It combines 21st-century fitness science with the centuries-old techniques of Tai Chi to help reduce joint and muscle pain through better muscle control. The real breakthrough behind Tai Cheng is a rapid learning technique called Dynamic Motion ControlTM-that teaches you to master the 18 fundamental moves of Tai Chi in just 90 days. Every day, Tai Cheng takes you through a gentle, energizing warm-up and focuses on a unique Tai Chi move. Then, in phases, you’ll learn to put the moves together into sequence. You’ll also practice breathing and meditation, proper nutrition, and resistance moves with the strength band you’ll receive. Plus, you’ll even learn how to massage away everyday aches and pains using the foam roller included in your kit. This 13-week regimen delivers tremendous benefits, whether you’re a beginner starting out with the first-level moves, or you’re an elite athlete who’s looking to improve your athletic performance or work through an injury in safer, more holistic ways. You’ll experience increased balance and strength, improved joint function, a wider range of motion, less stiffness, greater flexibility, and an overall feeling of natural energy and well-being. Dr. Mark Cheng, the creator of Tai Cheng, is a martial arts master trainer with 3 decades of experience in Tai Chi. His background as a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner and a physical therapy-based corrective exercise expert have allowed him to observe movement patterns in his patients to identify the root cause of pain, and assist them using specialized treatments such as Tui-Na manual therapy, corrective exercises, and acupuncture. Today, his patients include PGA golfers, pro football players, and MMA fighters, as well as celebrities and entertainment personalities. Now he’s here to help you through Tai Cheng.

Almost anyone can benefit from doing Tai Cheng. This includes athletes looking to improve their sports performance and make use of their full athletic potential, those who are recovering from injury or simply returning to exercise after a long period of time off caused by injury, those looking for a gentle workout free of jumping, rapid movements and heavy cardio, Seniors looking to stay independent and mobile, as well as those who are looking to get in better touch with their bodies, creating a greater sense of awareness and well-being.
No matter what your background, Tai Cheng has a variety of health benefits. For athletes looking to improve their athletic performance, Tai Cheng can help reduce your risk of injury, put less strain on muscles to increase power, improve alignment, and develop overall increase in range of motion, strength, stability, control, and balance.
For those recovering from injury or returning to exercise after injury, rest assured…Tai Cheng offers no rapid movements that could injure and no jumping. Tai Cheng will help you recover flexibility as well as rebuild your strength and stability. This increase of stability and strength will help you develop a stronger foundation and prepare you for more extreme fitness like P90X or Insanity.
For those looking for a gentle workout, Tai Cheng is perfect. Its Tai Chi slow and flowing movements will never put stress on your joints, only ease any tensions you may have. It will allow you to lose weight safely and gently, while developing a better sense of body awareness and control.
For Seniors, Tai Cheng can help prolong fitness and help maintain your mobility and strength. Together, Tai Cheng will also help Seniors improve their balance, which will help decrease the possibility of falling. Who says that just because you’re old means you have to be immobile?
And for those who are just looking to regain a better sense of their bodies, Tai Cheng helps reduce stress and relieves trigger points that cause muscle stiffness. Together, these help contribute to a greater sense of well-being and a happier, healthier you.
How Tai Cheng Works
An Introduction to Dynamic Motion Control
Tai Cheng’s secret to success is Dynamic Motion Control. Dynamic Motion Control involves the use of gentle flowing movements designed to help you open up your joints, untie painful muscle knots, increase flexibility, and improve balance. In the 90 days you follow this program, you will learn Tai Chi’s 18 key healing movements, and it is through all this how you will be able to live an active lifestyle with less pain. First, you’ll learn the individual movements. Next, you will combine these new learned movements and postures together to create combinations, which eventually will lead to longer series of combinations designed to help you feel younger. This step-by-step learning process is what will let you learn the practice of Tai Chi without the overwhelming feeling of learning too many moves at once.
You will actually improve your health as you age instead of the much accepted notion of health declining with age. The therapeutic movements and postures involved in this program have been proven to improve circulation, increase lung capacity, and increase muscle strength. This increase of blood through your veins is what will help your body get rid of its toxins, which in turn boosts your natural immunity and your overall health. There is nothing to lose with Tai Cheng – only the possibility of regaining your youth.
To get the most out of this video set you’ll need:
Painters’ Tape ($3)
18″ or bigger foam roller ($10 – $15)
2 resistance bands, one being a higher resistance than the other ($10 ish).
When it asks for a yellow band, use the lower resistance band.
When it asks for a green band, use the higher resistance band.
PLEASE note that there are 2 different schedules depending on whether you want to do Basic or Master… In order to avoid having duplicate videos in this set I’ve laid things out using the Basic schedule. If you choose to do the full master set with the Qi Gong you’ll only have to watch an extra video here and there. I’ve done my usual job of renaming all the videos to useful file names to make your life easier.
Start out by watching the Master Scroll DVD. This disc is full of everything you’ll need to know about the Tai Cheng program.
Each week consists of a 6 day workout, hence the 6 videos per week. As this is the Master kit the Master Class and Qi Gong discs are included. Also, the Applied Tai Cheng and Body Alignment discs bonuses are included as well. The “Master Class” and “Qi Gong” videos are in AVI while the rest are in M4V format because the M4V set was the Tai Cheng Basic Set and I had to get the “Master Kit” upgrade materials from another source. Don’t worry, the M4Vs are 720×480 and the AVIs are 704×384 so they’re both damn good quality. For those who want hard numbers (each from a random file):
