5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, 30 Nov. 2012
Well illustrated and covers much of the detail, such as martial timing, lacking in other literature. This is considerably more comprehensive guide than some of the other literature i have read and goes much further than just basic guards and strikes.

1.0 out of 5 stars not good, 10 Nov. 2011
Salty, sour and a little acrid, uncomplex flavour, with a back of the throat aftertaste, nothing like the real thing and very dissapointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars way better than kingdom of heaven, 4 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Arn: Knight Templar [DVD] (DVD)
like Kingdom of Heaven but a better and more varied plot. The cinematography is great and steers clear of Ridley Scots annoying "jerky handycam in the middle of a battle" style. The costumes and weapons were better than expected, I felt empathy for the lead charachters and found the swedish with english subtitles perfectly watchable after few minutes of getting used to it. (theres is some english in it too). For those that care about such things: The fight choreography is good, but some of it is not necessarily historically acurate to the techniques used at that time.

2.0 out of 5 stars dark, depressing and dull, 4 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Black Death [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
sean beans acting upstages everyone else. This dark film has a dreary end and leaves with an "... oh.. that was dissapointing" feeling. its worth renting but dont buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars quality feel and well written, 20 Sept. 2010
a physically quality feel to the book and ideal for anyone just getting into sea fishing. Honest guidance that will give you a half decent chance of catching fish without spending a fortune. The recipes section at the back is a welcome added feature

5.0 out of 5 stars western martial arts gets the big budget recognition it deserves, 4 May 2010
This review is from: Reclaiming The Blade [DVD] (DVD)
A superb documentary film, I really enjoyed this. It spans a breadth of different interests in the sword, without becoming too hollywood in its approach. It starts by looking at swords in film, and actors that used them, then moves on to modern takes on swordfighting like sport fencing, re-enactment and real time fight choreography, to put the use of swords into a current context. It then moves on to more historically accurate swordfighting techniques which are now being revived by numerous clubs that are studying the original source training manuscripts and "reclaiming the blade" by relearning what has been lost and forgotten. It shows Western / Historical European Martial Arts in a very positive light, without being derogatory to sport fencing or re-enactors, successfully pointing out some important differences between these disciplines. It goes on to discuss a particularly rare 6 stranded northumbrian sword. The camerawork is very good throughout, and the music sets the right mood. A very well put together documentary and im looking forward to Reclaiming the Blade 2 - A call to arms, which is set to delve deeper into western martial arts.

3.0 out of 5 stars good diagrams., 9 Feb. 2009
If you are learning medieval swordfighting after the syle of Lichtenauer or Ringeck, then this very well illustrated guide will explain the basic guards and attacks, which is particularly useful as the original manuscripts for the technique were non-illustrated and written in medieval high german rhyming couplets..! In essence this is book 1 for anyone learning western martial arts, german longsword, and will serve as a handy reference for home practice between training sessions however, early copies were not that well edited, though the author and publisher will be improving on the book and adding more content in later editions. The 3D black and white diagrams are good though, and the minor grammatical mistakes are easily ignored. Print quality is ok. It comes in an A4 paerback booklet format which means diagrams are a good size. Well reccomended as a handy reference for a beginner.

1.0 out of 5 stars heavy going, 10 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Thames: Sacred River (Paperback)
the author rambles on, goes off on tangents, and the whole thing is just too much effot to read due to the overly wordy way in which the book is written. Very dissapointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb beginners guide, 5 Sept. 2008
want to get into it properly?..read this first BEFORE you spend money in a model shop.

good information for the beginner and explains how slope soaring and thermal gliders work, and how to build, test, launch, fly and land a model glider.
