Customer Rating: Summary: A true classic documentary. Comment: This DVD is something I treasure; it contains a great and detailed glimpse into the ways of the warriors of Japan, with looks at some of their greatest arts. I heartily recommend every martial artist pick this up for their library. Customer Rating: Summary: Comments on BUDO Comment: Seeing such notables such as Gozo Shioda in Aikido, or Nakamura Taizaburo doing tameshigiri in itself is truely an important part of the history of the arts. The few moments I did get to watch the video I wish I could have seen others such as Richard Kim, Mas Oyama, or Yoshio Sugino. They may be in the video but as I just mentioned I really did not get a chance to see the video in it's entirety. From what I did observe truly entertaining to take a step back into history to see the masters in action. Customer Rating: Summary: Great Find!!! Comment: This is a great documentary style movie covering a couple different martial arts. A must own for anyone interested in the arts! Customer Rating: Summary: A Must See for any Martial Artist Comment: This is a classic movie from Japan that my martial arts instructor has hauled out on a yearly basis to show his students. After many repetitions, the VHS tape was very worn, so I was really pleased to see this finally available on DVD.
It is rivetting from beginning to end. Beautiful scenery, and video of several true masters of the martial arts in Japan. Customer Rating: Summary: Traditional Martial Arts Comment: This DVD covers, the asian culture of Japan and talks about the type of martials arts they study. Aikido, Judo, Karate, Kendo, Sumo Wrestling and the ways of the great Samuri Warrior are the topics here. I would have liked to see something on the art Ninjitsu. However, the movie has a very clear picture for being filmed in 1982. I gave it fours stars. I enjoyed this DVD very much.
