Movie Reviews

Does everything it claims on the box....
Ron Lyle | Melbourne Australia | 11/29/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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..


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....."
Very good for improving

"My dad got me and my sister this DVD to improve our karate. Jim teaches very methodically and clearly, starting with the very very basics of everything - good for any level of karate though--basics are always a good thing to review."

"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."
