    Good documentary. I enjoyed it, but don't care for the title. I little cheezy and very Western. I do like the beach training scenes. Our club is close to a beach and we train a few times a year on the beach. Oh, the places sand will GO!

    I never liked the title either. Great documentary. I've owned it since it was on VHS.

    The original title was 'Nichiei Bujutsu'. It wasn't till later that the English version came out. Some great footage though- Teruo Hayashi doing kobudo and karate. "Tetsu' Fujimoto beating up a train, Nakamura Taizaburo charging down a 'bayonet lane' and cutting wara. I saw this back in '86 for the first time.

    Not sure if everyone who enjoyed this documentary knows, but it is available on DVD on Amazon. I ordered a copy a few months ago and the quality is excellent, remastered from the original archives into letterbox format.

    I'm also fortunate to have a pretty decent copy of the BBC series "The Way of the Warrior". Got it from someone that runs a dojo in London, England. For a while I was the only guy in my circle of friends with a copy but now I see that you can pretty much see the whole series on Youtube. I love the section on Tai Chi and Ba Gua, that old man can move!

    I read that Sumo was very popular with the warrior castes of Japan as training for warfare. I can see why. The charge in sumo at the beginning is very unique, and I bet it helped to have skills to deal with that if you were a professional warrior.

    Great videos!
