It says that it is custom made for your martial art. So my question would be how would the karate (note he differentiates the 3 different styles!) set differ from aikido for example, inorder to "concentrate on the particular needs of the martial art we study"?

My Lord; someone actually bid on this?????

Why don't they just wear a pyramid hat and crystals while they're at it?

Geez - you're right; this is funny as hell; but gawd, I hate shortcuts! The only way to learn anything worthwhile is by taking the path of maximum resistance; the long, hard road.

...Unless of course you're wearing an Arcturan Cosmic Bracelet; which focuses the Powers of the Universe for only $29.95.

Answers are only easy when they're incomplete.

Actually...

If I recall correctly, there is some research showing a weak positive effect for subliminal learning. I will try to dig up the citation.

Actually, subliminal "reviewing" is a more apt description - you need to know the material a little before hand.

If you're into into that kinda thing, I don't see why you couldn't record your own tape. It'd work better and be cheaper.

*shrugs*

I think Lazinov has a book on this?
