Deadly Arts takes viewers around the globe to uncover the myths, the legends and the spirituality behind six unique art forms.
Each chapter traces the culture and history that enriches each of the art forms right from the two-thousand-year unique Chinese legacy of Kung Fu to the distinct history of Karate and the rhythmic, acrobatic fighting style of Capoeira. Each chapter gives a birdís eye view of the art form featured - be it Aikido-the martial art of peace, the male-dominated world of Muay Thai, or the rare Indian art of Kalaripayattu and its healing powers.

Aikido- Josette Normandeau seeks out Japan's top Aikido masters to train her in the martial art of peace. Includes sessions with:

Moriteru Ueshiba
Michio Hikitsuchi
Yoshimitsu Yamada
Hitohiro Saito
Seiji Gomita

I think this is the episode where Josette Normandeau is standing in Narita Airport, speaking dramatically to the camera, asking something like "...will we find the aikido master..." when unbeknownst to her, a 6th dan from our organization happens to walk by peering curiously at the filming taking place.

Funny story - you know the guy who accompanies and trains alongside Josette Normandeau in the entire video? He came over to our dojo and sat down by the edge of the mat to watch a seminar going on at the moment. I too came over and sat down next to him to watch (We were the only ones there, so we exchanged brief hellos. I didn't train due to my arm being in a sling from a broken clavicle)

We watched the whole class, then at the end my friend comes over and says "Dude, do you know who you just sat with the whole time? That guy from the Deadly Arts: Aikido video!"

I didn't recognize him. :uch:

Damn his ukemi with Yamada sensei was good. Good video this is.

Unfortunately, we don't have access here on that channel...so maybe you can upload somewhere the show in some downloadable format?
Hehehe

Hi josephine,

Im not sure, but doesn't national geographic show re-runs of that here?

edit:quick question: I kinda forgot why, but didn't they leave the Humbo Dojo prematurely in the film? :straightf

Glad it's back on the air, although the Aikido ep (and Thai Boxing ep, which is also recommended) have come and gone. Is it going to be on next month? Failing that, anyone know if the series is available on DVD?

I have to admit i have watched this several times and i found it to be frustrating and disappointing.

The constant uses of the honourific "master/s" started to annoy me and the way she just turned up at dojos and expected to be taught was plain stupid.

It would have been good to differentiate between the different styles as well as she visited several different dojos in her program.

Considering she is supposed to be an aikidoka I was unimpressed with the porgram overall...but then i am a cynical git.
