In General Ellis Amdur video tape and book Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I recently purchased Ellis Amdur's video on Ukemi, and threw in his book "Grappling with the myth of the warrior sage", since I like reading as much as I can about every hobby I pick up.
I was expecting to get more from the DVD, but ended up reading the book in my bed every night and pondering deeply after every chapter. I'm not a person to fall for kitsch writing, but the book truly raises questions that has plagued me from day one on the mat, and even worse - questions that I haven't even asked myself, and should have.
The DVD on the other hand, didn't even show a single fall I recognize and I have no idea how I can practice anything I've seen there during class. I'll have to inspect it further
Just a quick thought. Now, back to work.
