Excellent quantity, lesser quality
(4 out of 5 stars)
"There are an astonishing number of drills and techniques presented here. They are divided into the following categories: Speed, Agility, Timing, Power, Stength, Stamina, Flexibility, Reflexes, Coordination.However, there are no multi-camera angles or slow motion presentations. Production values are adequate but not even close to state-of-the-art. The narrated descriptions are terse and the accent of the narrator makes it a bit hard to understand. The presentation of the material is quite fast paced. This DVD's value to the beginner is limited in that there are no modifications show for less flexible beginners and no hints on how to work up to the full technique.With these limitations in mind, this DVD presents a treasure trove of valuable information. With a bit more effort Turtle Press could have achieved near perfection. Sang Kim is an amazing athlete and martial artist--he definately has the "right stuff"."
Amazing variety of exercises

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD is like an encyclopedia of martial arts exercises. If it's good for martial arts training, it's probably in this collection, especially when it comes to flexibility, which gets heavy emphasis. What I like even more than the huge number of exercises is the way the menu is set up. Exercises are grouped so you can skip to the set that you need without having to wade through everything on the disc. As an instructor, this makes it very easy for me to refresh my memory quickly before a class or warm-up. Just pop the disc in, skip to the section I need and go. A great resource for instructors and for students who train at home or want to."
Some good parts and some really weak parts

"Some of the excercises are very helpful and useful but some of them are just filler. The weight lifting excercises are a good example of the filler. The excercises are shown but nothing is put in to workouts.
I have to admit though, the stretching/flexability section is great."
Great selection of exercises

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This dvd has a great selection of exercises, ranging from the easy, do them in class all the time type to some that I'd love to be able to do and am working up to. The flexibility section is especially good, with a ton of exercises to improve your kicking height and strength. This is one that I'll be able to keep coming back to and finding new challenges for a good long time."
