US West Coast Tai Kai

Published by at 10:31 am under Media Review

Recently there was a tai kai featuring two friends of mine, Paul Masse and Rob Renner.  You can see a preview for the video here.  It can be purchased at www.bujinkanlife.com for 29.95 US.

I am waiting for my copy right now actually.  I usually would not pre-approve a video but these are two guys who have significant Japan experience.  There is a real connection that they have which I have to insist people analyze and try to emulate.

A short note about Paul and Rob.  Paul Masse trains weekly with sensei where he is occasionally translating.  In fact all the times that I have been in Japan I think I have been to one Hatsumi Sensei class where I did not see him.  The same can be said about Rob.

In addition to Sensei’s classes Rob trains with Oguri, Nagato, Noguchi and Seno Senseis.  He occasionally translates for Oguri and Nagato senseis.  (Rob also teaches 5 classes a week at his own dojo.)

Thus you can be sure that you are in good hands when you learn from them.  That’s all I have to say about this video, for now.

    I haven’t made it all the way through yet, but so far I can tell you this DVD is definitely worth the investment. The DVD can cause motion sickness. The camera is all over the place, but the content is well worth it. Just watch it in smaller chunks if you have to.
