The "potentials" displayed are simply ridiculous. It displays such a profound lack of understanding of weapons that after the students picked them up -class should have begun with a few years worth of corrections...It is foundationally flawed in it approach.
As budo people I feel we should not take part in these things. What value is there in fantasy in our dojo? None. So why put one on film?
Would you be willing to give an analysis of even just one or two segments and how they display a lack in understanding? I'm glad you're able to see how it's flawed and let us know about it, but can you help us a bit more than that?
Take care,
