Get the cut--feel the burn!

For all you advocates of bokken training for fitness

Re: Get the cut--feel the burn!

First GymKata, then TaoBo, now KardioKendo.

And someone should inform this fifth degree black belt (in what?) how a katana is actually gripped.

Well, that was an amusing little diversion. Thanks Bronson!

Re: Get the cut--feel the burn!

Is he trying to look like Duncan Macleod or what?

I just noticed that if you look at the handle of blade he`s holding, I do believe that it is a replica of Duncan Macleod`s from the Highlander TV series.

I`d love to see some actual footage from his video.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Re: Get the cut--feel the burn!

How many kata for the chainsaw? Is it two, or three - I'm always confused on that.

Re: Get the cut--feel the burn!

Hehe, thanks Suren & Michael Y. It's amazing what you can do with Photoshop and nothing to do at work!
Idle hands...

You know, I don't think the chainsaw really lends itself to kata practice. I guess it's kind of an intuitive weapon. Paired chainsaw practice; now that would be something!

Re: Get the cut--feel the burn!

I don't recognice the style of sword-work he's using. Combined with the complete lack of references to the origin of his 5. dan , I would probably not spend the 45$ on the DVD or even the 15$ for a tank top.... Would rather save the money for a seminar with a sensei that actually has a grasp of the concept of Budo.

I suspect mr. Short has been in need of a way to make his instructional videos stand out from all the other fitness-videos on the market. Just too bad that some people actually might think that they get real Budo for their money.

I would be extremely causious before buying anything from this guy. Not just because i question the value of learning Budo from a DVD, but because I simply believe what this guy is doing is not very closely related to any serious school of japanese swordmanship.

Sorry mr. Short - no sale.....
