For the first time ever, Tak Kubota reveals hidden treasures of combat. See the secrets of hand and body conditioning used by the ancient Okinawa Karate masters to defeat armed Japanese samurai with their bare hands! Tak Kubota, the world's most knowledgeable karate master on ancient combat conditioning, demonstrates in detail the training that made him a lethal weapon. Knowing martial arts techniques is only a foundation. Hands and feet conditioning is the next step in delivering devastating blows with rock-crushing power. Many of these exercises and training methods have never been revealed to the public before. For more than 50 years, beginners and black belts have benefited from Master Kubota's amazing unconventional methods.
They should really change this DVDs name, the DVD has little to no actuall instruction on body conditioning, it starts off as a brief historic introduction about TAK, shows him doing some early morning stretches (no explination) then it goes through a regular class, nothing special really, after this it skips into an old video of Tak hitting the makiawara board and jumping on his toes, once again no explination as to what this helps with and how to develop it, NOTHING, then it skips again to modern time, to Tak hitting the board in his class, again no explination not even how to make that cool makiawara he has set up there
In the end it was interesting to watch how a karate class is run by a master but Im really disapointed with the way this DVD is marketed, it really makes you think that you will learn some great techniques and even how to build a makiawara but you get none of that here, If your interested to take a look at a great master taking a class, get this, but if you are looking for useable techniques to condition your body for fighting this is not it
Twenty stars out five. Excellent production and quality in the techniques. I'm very impressed. Highly recommended
