Pros: Very positive
Cons: none

This series of Dvds are an updated version of Vhs video material.The techniques are demonstrated by Chiba Sensei 8th Dan Shihan. These cover basic waza up to and including first kyu. A short written commentary by Chiba Sensei introduces the aims and objectives of the set which is very interesting.
The camera work captures the dynamic movement of Sensei from various angles. The standard of Ukemi is also very high , carried out by a number of Chiba Sensei's students.
Body conditioning /Weapons work is also therein.This section is very impressive for the athleticism of the students taking part.
It is not a basic dvd , one has to know a certain amount of Aikido waza to fully appreciate this set.I have tried to rate it to no avail.The product is excellent , and I rate it 10 /1o.It should be mandatory/required viewing for any serious student of Aikido. The dvd was shot at the Fairmount Dojo.As a point of interest most if not all the Uke are now highly experienced aikidoka in their own right.A few of them at the time of compiling the original set were Uchi Deshi at San Diego Aikikai .Most of them were my ex training partners.
