Summary: BUYER BEWARE!
Comment: Once again Don Warnner of Rising Sun Productions DECEIVES the buyer,
the cover states iaido and shows a prominent Sensei of Toyama Ryu, Seiji Ueki Sensei all over the cover and disc itself,BUT NOWHERE AND ,I REPEAT NOWHERE DOES UEKI SENSEI APPEAR IN THIS VIDEO ,OR IS THER ANY INSTRUCTION IN CLASICAL IAIDO !!,This is just poor management of a company and an effort to deceive to make sales, very sad indeed.In my opinion mr. Warnner is a man of no Budo and misrepresents to make a buck! THIS IS JUST A COPY OF NIHON KENDO KATA !!! BUY THAT INSTEAD !!!Although the video itself is great for the material it contains , it should have been marketed acurately, VERY SAD don VERY sad!>>>>>

Summary: Cheap and Incorrect
Comment: As already stated, this is KENDO kata and has nothing what so ever to do with Iaido. The opening title even displays "Japanese (Nihon) Kendo Kata" as the video starts.
Kendo kata are not performed with live or even practice blades, they are performed with bokuto. Having said this, the content is a fine demonstration of proper and improper techniques for Kendo kata.
The video itself is a poorly made copy from a VHS tape. No one looking for Kendo kata videos would think to buy this. Those looking for Iaido videos will feel "ripped off" if they do.
RisingSunProductions is either ignorant of what they are releasing or fraudulant. Seek Iaido instruction elsewhere. Do not buy this DVD.

Summary: CLASSICAL IAIDO
Comment: I loved this DVD it was terrific and very well done. The Japanese Instructors who did this should be applauded for their efforts.

Summary: Kendo, not Iaido
Comment: This footage is all about live blade Kendo, not iaido. They made a mistake on the cover. However, the footage is still very interesting and fascinating to watch if you are into Kendo with a live blade. Also, the quality of the film is poor, but then again, where else can you get vintage footage of masters in Japan practicing live blade kendo.
