New DVD's of Hitohira Saito Jukucho

Recently the Hiden Magazine - Japan - has published two DVDs of Hitohira Saito Jukucho. These DVDs do not yet have English subtitles however the images are clear and Sensei's explanations are simple and yet very precise. Those accustomed to come to Iwama as uchideshi or who frequently study under Sensei at international seminars, will find Sensei's explanations very clear and easy to understand. There are two DVDs: one Taijutsu and one Bukiwaza.

Taijutsu DVD: there are Suwari waza and tachi waza techniques. Sensei starts by teaching tai no henko and ki no nagare with lots of very important information and teachings. Suwari waza includes very clear explanations of ikkyo to gokyo. Those who are studying for Dantests will find this an extremely useful and precious source of information in the absence of Sensei. The Tachiwaza chapter includes fantastic explanations and demonstrations of Kokyu-nage, Shiho-nage, Kote-gaeshi, and Irimi nage. Sensei patiently teaches with detail both yudansha and beginners often serving as uke to teach important points. One must definitely have this DVD taught in a serious and detailed manner by Sensei.
