The Michael Jordan of Soccer teaches AND entertains

"Two weeks ago when a co-worker from England overheard that I was looking for a video to help my son get better at soccer, he asked me if I wanted to teach him to "bend it like beckham"? I had to admit that I had no idea what he was talking about. Last week he brought a DVD called "Really Bend It Like Beckham" to me, and I still only thought he resembled some young actor I had seen on Entertainment Tonight. But this past weekend, my son and i sat down to watch it and were amazed. Sure, it was hard to get him to sit in one place and watch what probably sounded like a boring, one-hour coaching video, but once it began were we both enthralled. This is normally the kind of thing that I might put on, make sure he was watching, and do the crossword, but it was presented in such a fresh and fun way with cool, easy to follow technological effects, that I stuck around to watch the entire thing. It definitely renewed my son's interest in the sport (after a long spring of practices already) and even made me get excited about helping teach him (which is saying something). If nothing else, "Really Bend It Like Beckham" succeeds in entertaining while it teaches, unlike every other coaching video out there. From here on out, we (and I must admit, my wife too) are big-time Beckham fans."
Really Bend It Like Beckham is really awesome!

"Unlike most soccer skill and highlight programs which tend to be dry and boring, this DVD entertains as well as educates. It is truly unique and a must for anyone who wants to learn or loves soccer.
The DVD is presented on 2 discs and features over 100 minutes of Beckham going over almost every skill imaginable, from beginner skills like passing and shooting to Beckham's bending free kicks. It teaches everyone from young kids to adults how to develop top-level player skills and the bonus disc gives the audience a rare look inside the life of arguably the most famous athlete in the world.
Shot in high-definition using Matrix-like 360-degree multi-camera photography it will definitely entertain its audience, who is treated for the first time to an amazing analysis of Beckham's superior skills, both in real time and super slow motion.
He takes a group of boys and girls of varying age through the extensive soccer drills and answers questions from them on everything from football to life on and off the field with Real Madrid, Victoria (Posh Spice) and his kids.
Disc Two showcases highlights of Beckham career including his unbelievable goal from the half-way line and his last-second free kick goal that helped England qualify for the 2002 World Cup.
A special feature for both youth and adult coaches is a unique printable version of the DVD-ROM coaching plan. The DVD also includes complete Spanish and French versions of the entire program, menus as well.
David mentions in the program that making this DVD was a true labor of love for him and the finished product really reflect that."
Great For Kids AND Parents

"I got this DVD for my fiance's son, and he absolutely loved it. We watched it with him and we were entertained as much as he was. He immediately went outside and started practicing the instant he was done watching it. Almost everyday since he has been watching it and practicing. His skills and his excitement for the game have benefitted greatly from the DVD.
We have bought other instructional videos on Soccer for him and honestly we usually find something else to do while he watches them, which isnt very long usually as he gets bored and his attention goes elsewhere. But with the multiple angles and slow motion and other special effects in this DVD not only is he glued to it, we find ourselves glued to it as well.
If you are a parent of a soccer player, or know a child who plays soccer this is just an awesome gift for them. It will really help their game and keep them, and you entertained. Heck, even if you are just a Soccer fan or a fan of David Beckham, you would get a lot of value out of this DVD. The Soccer Matches that are included on disk two are a blast to watch as well.
Avoid getting the Red Card and buy this dvd now!"
