This 6 part DVD was a very pleasant surprise. I was not familiar with Sensei Dorfman's instruction but I was familiar with his Sensei, Master Yahara. This is an advanced technical explanation of the most basic karate skills that are taught by Sensei Yahara at the JKS. Malcolm Dorfman breaks everything down to sound body mechanics. This DVD is for the more advanced Shotokan student. It includes the fine tuning of an advanced Shotokan kata plus the concept of real self-defense and not a Hollywood verson. This DVD is for the more advanced serious student of JKA style Shotokan Karate.
