Editorial Reviews:

This is the sixth and final volume of the Goju Ryu Karate Technical series of videos featuring the world’s leading exponent of Goju Ryu karate, Morio Higaonna, 9th Dan, Hanshi. It is a fitting conclusion to an instructional course widely regarded as the finest ever made on the subject, that has, since its introduction, been a best-seller in North America, Europe, Japan, and Australasia. The subject of this presentation, Sanseru, is a trade mark kata of Goju Ryu, and no one performs it better than the author. For clarity he teaches the kata in great detail to a single student, emphasizing the key points that must be perfected, and the common faults that should be avoided. He also explains the significance of the movements, how they are applied (bunkai), and shows many training exercises with a partner that develop the ability to use these powerful methods fluidly and dynamically (kakie).

Filmed in a traditional dojo, against the backdrop of a superb Japanese garden, the inclusion of on-screen navigational menus make this DVD as easy to use as it is beautiful. This is an enduring record of the genius of the founder of Goju Ryu karate, Chojun Miyagi, expressed through the mastery of his art by an instructor of unparalleled strength and ability.55 minutes of performances, lectures and demonstrations by Morio Higaonna, 9th Dan, Hanshi.

Summary: definitive kata dvd
Comment: third attempt to review this sanseru dvd.. words cant do it justice..
as a user of reviews & long term goju student, something must be said..
to fellow gojuka may i humbly recommend this sanseru dvd to you..

the brief review on the case and amazon product page are correct [higaonna hanshi is now 10dan]
yet understated & without detail..

this sanseru dvd is the next best thing to a private lesson with higaonna sensei, as might be expected
from a goju master to/for his high grade and keen - but distant - students..

it is excellent in every, respect..

aimed at high grades - the student being corrected in detail is dan grade -
sensei emphasizes progressively different waza according to experience and ability..
the differences between how waza is done for kata practice and with a partner,
and how the same waza is done for real..

that is an eg of the type/level of demonstration/instruction in this dvd..

for me, the beautiful production, setting, traditional music, sensei doing tensho on a rock by the waterfall
or later sitting on a rock in zen meditation, or doing oyo bunkai with the student in that japanese garden
[as 'background'] were simply icing on the cake..

other styles and non-karateka would learn from it..

after life-long training in goju incl [brief] training with higaonna and chinen sensei
and having earlier goju kata video, and the chinen set,
i unreservedly & highly recommend this sanseru dvd..

it arrived in purpose-made strong cardboard dvd box ahead of schedule
at good price from amazon.com [also recommended]..
