Product Description

Product Description: "Why Knot? an introduction to knots, splices & rope" is an instructional DVD perfect for learning knot tying, splices and basic rope information on your own or for use while teaching a group. Practice along with the DVD then pause, when you see the pause symbol, to check your knot.

Why Knot? takes the innovative approach of showing how the knots and splices are tied from the perspective of the person actually tying the knot or creating the splices. Once you know how to tie the knot, you will then see the knot in its "natural habitat" -- Real People using Real Knots. It is interesting to know how to tie a knot; it's EXCITING to know when to use the knot.

Why Knot? How about for:
* Rock climbing
* Sailing
* Horseback riding
* Tying your neckties
* Camping
* A host of other reasons

In this 2 hour DVD you will learn 47 knots and 6 splices with the added feature of learning which knot is the "best" knot for a specific job. It is important to use the right knot for the job because sometimes if the knot comes untied it may be just simply inconvenient, mildly annoying or downright dangerous.

In addition to the main body, the DVD contains 34 minutes of bonus material, language and subtitle options (English or Spanish), and powerful navigational control; go right to the knots or section for your purpose.

Bonus Material:
* Neck tie knots
* Speed Knots - instruction in how to tie knots quickly
* Making a rope litter for rescue
* Creating a rope-making machine.

From the Contributor

From the Actor: After being asked by many youth groups and individuals to teach knot tying, we decided to fill this need by producing this powerful and easy to use DVD. We decided to put it into a format that allowed for users with varied interests to easily access the knots and information they need to learn. Want to learn the 10 most useful knots? Then go to Knot Sets and select the Top 10. Want to build on the list? Select Top 15 or Top 20. Interested in the knots you need for rock climbing or sailing? You'll find these in Knot Sets also!
