Shot at a seminar at Aikido of Diablo Valley, the first DVD covers general principles of the sword while the second DVD takes Mitsugi Saotome Sensei's Kumitachi 1 - 5 and dissects each form showing not just how to do the form itself but what the movements within the form could really be when executed in a martial contest. The principles presented in these videos are applicable to aiki sword in general and are not specific to Saotome Sensei's particular style.
