This DVD provides a great insight

This DVD provides a great insight into the 2006 West Coast Tai Kai that is almost as good as being there. If you practice Batto-do, get some other dojo-mates together and watch it. It is always great to study the example of advance practioners for both technique, and attitude.

I enjoyed this set.

I enjoyed this set. I specially liked the kata demonstrations by the japanese masters. I think the competion part could have had more precise information about its development. Nice production though.

Very interesting to see

Very interesting to see the cutting competition. Definately a lot of talent there. The demos were good but I enjoyed the interviews the most. All koryu practioners can learn a lot from the words of these kenshi.
