Summary: Hapkido - great start
Comment: I purchased this as a beginner to the art of Hapkido. I've trained in other martial arts over the years, but have decided to explore Hapkido as I'm getting older and looking for a "gentler" martial art. I'm one that likes to explore a subject thoroughly as I am learning. I found the instruction to be top rate in regards to the technique (again, understand I'm but a white belt). Steve goes even further in explaining the small details necessary for the practical application of the technique as well.

I have but two minor criticisms; First, I felt that Steve seemed a little unsure of just what he was going to say when he got started. He fumbled for the right words as if he was just winging the lessons. However, once he was actually showing and explaining the move he was superior. If you purchase this, don't let the first 5 minutes influence your view, the material is top notch.

Secondly, they need better quality video equipment and MUSIC. Honestly, my daughter and I chuckled at how terrible the musical background was in the transitions to the lessons. It sounded like something out of a terrible 70's martial arts film. I'm hoping that as Steve finds more success in his teach, which he surly will, that the companies putting together the videos will invest in better equipment AND music.

These two criticisms are VERY minor and do not affect the overall quality of this material. From the perspective of a new student to Hapkido, I've found it well worth the cost of the product.

Summary: definitevely good
Comment: I am an italian wing tsun/ kick boxing praticioner, for some years.
Actually, I am interested in all forms of combat.
The series of Mr Sexton is very completed and well explained.
The teqniques offered are sound and, in my opinion, effective.
I agree with some reviewer that has pointed out that the author doesn' only show the moves but really teaches them and in a great way.
In my opinion you must buy this series; it shows you how to defend empty hand, against a weapon (knife and gun) and also with a cane, the hapkido trademark.
No doubt, buy it now, if you can.

Summary: Hapkido Steve "Road House" Sexton 3 DVD set
Comment: The Techniques and performance action is very well presented. There is defective sound quality, the sound quality changes, is distracting but is clear and can be understood. The 2nd DVD is label as the second volume on the outside lable, but when played it is presented on the TV as Volume one with volume one table of contents. However, the presentation of technques are not a duplicate of volume one or three, they are volume two techniques.If you don't mind the error, the presentaion is good. I will not return my purchase.

Summary: Very valuable self defense DVD, not to be missed
Comment: My background: some years of informal judo/karate training and went back to shotokan karate class this year. As I got more interested in self defense issues, and martial art more suitable to street practice, I decided to buy this DVD. I had no previous knowledge of Hapkido, and I must say this dvd made me discover a new meaning of self defense martial arts. sounds and image are high quality, instructions are all very clear, Master Sexton (besides being 6th degree black belt) provides no-nonsense explanations wich are easy to follow. In maybe a total of 50 tecniques, I would say only 5-6 are a little too complex to be implemented in the stress of a street fight, the rest is pretty doable and devastating. That is, as Master Sexton puts it, with daily practice until you can repeat the tecs at lightining speed.
I would incourage to buy this dvd especially those people who focus a more self defense approach. One thing to note though: to practice you will absolutely need a sparring parntner, as all tecniques make use of grabs, holds and throws (judo alike) which practices solo aren't much effective.
In sum, a very good product.

Summary: "Lapel" grabs? Ugh!!
Comment: What is up with that??? Why would something claiming to deal with self-defense incorporate the practice uniform into their techniques? What is up with them always wearing them silly pajamas? They should be demonstrating in normal civilian clothes if they want to claim to be for self-defense!! I only knocked one star off for that because the damn lapel/Gi whatever they call it seems to be unavoidable anywhere!, why don't they just burn them dumb things and get rid of them once and for all! You're trying to learn how to save your life and they are only interested in practicing in comfortable clothing? A lot of good stuff in here and reasonably priced at $30 for over 3 hours. But I just had to rant about them silly robes, if I ever get attacked by someone wearing a bath rub I will know just what to do! We are all safe from being attacked by Hugh Hefner.
