Stanley Pranin just sent out a piece of e-mail saying, "We are pleased to announce a new DVD--our first product in this
format--that includes a collection of precious historical films featuring
aikido's most famous figures. These are the teachers most responsible for
the broad success of aikido following World War II. Beginning with the
unbelievable art of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba, each of these teachers
developed his own unique approach and technical style and inspired legions
of enthusiasts. The footage contained in this wonderful DVD represents some
of the highest level of aikido yet seen!" Sounds quite interesting! The DVD information page is located here.

That looks really good. That would be great if someone who's not broke could review it for us

Is it just me, or are all these martial arts videos and dvd's VERY expensive. 55 minutes isn't all that long for $50.00, but I know it's goes to a good cause... I'm not whining, but I work at a movie theatre never hear the end of people complaining about how expensive we are. Oh well.

Yep - I'd agree. Although the distribution is obvioulsly limited the production costs can't possibly be as high as mainstream films. There are many DVDs and tapes I would buy, but the costs are too restrictive. (I've seen tapes advertised of half the length for the same cost). If they halved the price I think they'd more than double the sales.

P.S. even looking at the reviews of the 6 videos on Ueshiba on this site you'll find that not one has been reviewed. Does anyone own a copy? Also less than 14% of videos listed on aikiweb have been rated.
