Get Your Black Belt, 20 May 2004
Shotokan Karate - From Beginner To Black Belt focuses more on developing technique than power, but with correct technique comes the power. Does well presenting the katas, stances and attacks that are part of Shotokan Karate. This DVD is part of a series of martial arts dvds allowing a beginner to hone their skills, by practising techniques and also "kumite" sparring. Each chapter contains show clear techniques, shown in various angles and then goes on to show the practical application of the moves. I valuable and inexpensive addition for training.
