DVD Compatibility Issues
How do I know whether the DVDs I ordered will play on my player?
Few DVDs will play on all players, and compatibility problems may arise. However, we have found that this is very rare with our products. The very few customers reporting compatibility problems were attempting to view our DVDs via their computer or on much older DVD players. The vast majority of our customers have experienced no compatibility problems.
What happens if I experience compatibility problems or receive a damaged disc?
We will be happy to exchange, replace or make a refund to those customers who experience compatibility problems or who receive damaged discs. Call 708-386-0266 to report a problem and arrange for an exchange, replacement or refund.
Taichitao.tv and Online Video
I opened an account at Taichitao.tv, but can’t buy DVDs with the same account. Why?
Our online streaming video service at Taichitao.tv is hosted on a separate platform and requires a separate account to access. Our DVDs can be bought on our main site with no account necessary. Both payment gateways and carts at Taichitao.tv and www.taichitaocenter.com are secure.
Taichi Training and Instruction
I’m traveling to the Chicago area for a weekend or an extended trip. Can I study at the Taichi Center while I’m there?
Sure! We can offer you a special prorated membership package to cover instruction for the duration of your trip. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 1-708-386-0266 to let us know when you plan to arrive and to discuss your interests and available classes and seminars during your stay.
Are there other organizations officially affiliated with the Taichi Tao Center?
