Summary: BUY IT IF YOU WANT TO LEARN KARATE TECHNIQUES
Comment: THIS DVD IS FOR THE PERSON WHO IS SERIOUS ABOUT LEARNING KARATE TECHNIQUE AND ALTHOUGH ITS NOT PERFECT ITS STILL EXCELLENT IN MANY WAYS . I ENJOYED THE CLEAR AND UNDERSTANDABLE INSTRUCTION GIVEN BY THE PRESENTER. THE QUALITY IS NOT THE BEST AS IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS SHOT ON VIDEO AND TRANSFERRED BUT THE CONTENT IS EXCELLENT. I DIDNT BUY IT AS A FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT FOR MY KIDS BUT AS A TEACHING VEHICLE AND IT HAS BEEN EXCELLENT. MY TWO KIDS TRAIN IN KARATE TAE KWON DO AND THEY WATCH THE DVD FOR A FEW MINUTES AND THEN KEEP REPEATING THE TECHNIQUE UNTIL THEY GET IT RIGHT. I HOPE THIS PRESENTER MAKES MORE DVDS AND PUTS MORE INFO INTO THEM LIKE THE FORMS AND SPARRING AND IF HE DOES I WILL GET THEM FOR MY KIDS. BUY IT IF YOU WANT TO LEARN KARATE TECHNIQUES 5 STARS

Summary: Disappointing
Comment: I purchased this DVD based off the reviews. It is not meant to be something for kids -- only someone who is serious enough to edure the slowpaced instruction. The instructioni s accurate, just very boring. My children who are very excited about Karate, couldn't make it through this.

Summary: Does everything it claims on the box....
Comment: Plus factor

This is one of the few teaching tapes that really is useful as a training aid ... Jim wilson explains all the various kicks , punches , strikes in such an " Easy to learn from way " that I would recommend this tape to anyone wanting to learn or sharpen up their karate striking basic.....he explains about stances , shows how to use the hip correctly and the correct way to use the body to generate maximum power and speed ... this is much more than a beginners guide ...its a full explanation of basic technique performance .......whether you are a complete beginner or someone like me who has been training for reasonable time it is a great reference and learning guide..

Negatives

It was obviously filmed as a video and transferred to DVD and so suffers from some lack of chapters I would also have preferred if he had included the basic kata and kumite sparring drills as well making the tape so much more valuable ... but despite that I think its still a worthy buy.....

Summary: You can really learn from this DVD
Comment: In this dvd the instructor Jim really does show what to do and he explains all the karate moves in such a way I could start doing them right away ... I was really pleased I was able to show my parents some good karate stuff. I think this tape is great and everyone who wants to learn karate moves should have one.
