Re: Recommend good DVDs?

I've taken ukemi form several of Saotome's senior students and they're the real deal. Full speed, full power uncoregraphed attacks from someone who knows how to punch someone in the face so they wont get up after - dealt with with grace and full control.

Also by way of reference and qualifications - I've been a deshi for some of Chiba Shihan's senior students in the UK so know what power feels like. Different kind of power - but not better or worse. If you want to really be critical, experience one of Saotome's students first hand, otherwise you're opinion is next to worthless. Harsh but true.
