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
* Horseback riding
* Tying your neckties
* 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.
* Neck tie knots
* Speed Knots - instruction in how to tie knots quickly
* Making a rope litter for rescue
* Creating a rope-making machine.

This DVD has been very useful to me as a person who loves Outdoor Activities of every kind. Living in Korea it is not easy to find references for this kind of activities in English, so the DVD has been of great help. Because of the EXCELLENT presentation and the clear instructions, I've been able to use it to teach my Korean students some knot tying techniques while they practice English. It's awesome to have such a user friendly DVD at hand.
On our next phase we are going to make rope, how cool is that?
