decent stick workout - no knife fighting
on August 27, 2011
For some reason I misread the DVD description and thought there were knife fighting techniques in this video. Apparently, the knife fighting is in vol. 2, but I can't find vol. 2 anywhere. I was really hoping for some knife fighting techniques -- not sure if this DVD was worth the 20-30 dollars, but I enjoyed the fundamental techniques/drills Bustillo goes over in the 45 minute or so video. It's 100% stick fighting.
Even though the packaging says it's copyright 2006, this video looks like it was made in the 90s and the DVD appears to be a VHS transfer in 4:3, not 16:9, so if you have a 16:9 TV, the image will be stretched out or you'll have to change your TV's aspect ratio.
I'm not complaining about the content of the video, though. Bustillo is clear, concise, and goes through all of his moves slowly.
Decent workout video for stick fighting, but I probably would never buy something like this again, unless it was under $10, or had content over 45 minutes.
