This is one of the few teaching tapes that really is useful as a training aid ... Jim wilson explains all the various kicks , punches , strikes in such an " Easy to learn from way " that I would recommend this tape to anyone wanting to learn or sharpen up their karate striking basic.....he explains about stances , shows how to use the hip correctly and the correct way to use the body to generate maximum power and speed ... this is much more than a beginners guide ...its a full explanation of basic technique performance .......whether you are a complete beginner or someone like me who has been training for reasonable time it is a great reference and learning guide..
It was obviously filmed as a video and transferred to DVD and so suffers from some lack of chapters I would also have preferred if he had included the basic kata and kumite sparring drills as well making the tape so much more valuable ... but despite that I think its still a worthy buy.....
1. It's SUPER, SUPER CHEAPLY made. It comes with an actual computer-printed sticker on it. And yet they charge $25 for this??? What???
2. It's HORRIBLY formatted and you'll be lucky if you can get it to play all the way through on your player. The menus are also AWEFUL. The video quality is VHS quality as this is a "video to DVD transfer."
3. The instruction is HORRIBLE. Boring, non-repetitive, very hard to learn from. If you can learn Karate from this DVD, then you must be a reincarnated Samurai because I don't see how anyone else could learn from this.
4. Did I mention what they charge for this? Oh, by the way, the cover is printed off of what appears to be an inkjet printer too!
