Kamiwaza: How to Train Budo Master Skills DVD #1 and #2 by Tetsuzan Kuroda & Tatsuya Naka

I found these DVDs both interesting and informative even though they were in Japanese with no subtitles, which I knew it would be when I purchased them. Because I have been a student of Japanese Karate for a very long time, I was able to perform the skills that were demonstrated. I have also had enough experience with Aikido that I was able to follow the techniques that were presented in both DVDs #1 and #2. I have been fortunate to have trained in Japan with Naka Sensei so I just followed his lead as if I were at the JKA. Tape #2 delt with Iaido skills which was interesting. Both of these DVDs are not basic skills but more advanced techniques combining Karate, Aikido and Iaido. I recommend them for the advanced student of these Martial Arts.
