Re: Any suggested training dvd's for a beginner?

I am a begginner and agree with what others have said in relation to differences in style and technique on various DVDs. However I was struggling a bit to remember the steps of jo suburi so I asked my sensei for his recommendation. He suggested the Saito DVDs for jo and ken. I have to say being able to slowly follow the steps in my own home over and over has made a big difference for me. I really feel like I have got a grasp on these techniques that I didn't have before.

However I am always aware that there may be some difference between what my sensei teaches and what is in the DVDs so I keep an open mind.
