Summary: Instructional Swordsmanship
Comment: I enjoyed the historical section at the beginning of this DVD. Although it is not the style of Iaido I practice, I picked up some very good techniques from it. I found as with it's companion DVD, The Art Of Fast Draw, the instruction was clear and concise and easy to follow. Pleased to have purchase it.

Summary: this dvd sux big time!!!!!!!!
Comment: this dvd is a waste of time. it's just a rip off.
i do muso shinden ryu iaido n i have to say the techniques are all excecuted without zanshin at all. he seems to be rushing thru his techniques.....can't wait to get to the bank to cash in, perhaps?????
the tameshigiri part was okay tho. to the guy who was doing the cutting, parctice more. as i know the chopped parts aren't suppose to go into orbit, its supposed to alide off after a slight pause.
but i have to say i liked the old footage of the japanese doing the katas, wished there was more footage of that.
the final word is.....it might be captivating to biginners and people who do not have knowledge in iaido.....but not to those who have the knowledge.

ps....i wanted to givr a lower rating, but unfortunately the lowest i can givr is 1 star.

Summary: a must see
Comment: If you?re interested in swords or practice any of the Japanese Sword arts, this video is a must-see. It explains kata and techniques in great detail and now I know much, much more than when I started. This is the standard by which all others will be compared.
