 Karate The Kawasoe Way
M. Kawasoe

This DVD set covers most basic techniques and Karate concepts, and includes all the Heian kata, Tekki Shodan, Bassai Dai, Empi, Kanku Dai, Jion and Hangetsu.

Kawasoe Sensei has been famed for his excellent Karate technique, being regarded by many as the one of the most technically perfect to have come out of the JKA. This DVD shows us why. His technique is precise and minimal, while the power he generates is awe-inspiring.

One of the best sections shows Kawasoe Sensei teaching students various techniques. Here we see his calm teaching style, which not only relaxes his students and gives them confidence, but also motivates them to improve their technique each time it is made.

These DVDs are a fantastic resource for both beginners and advanced students alike, for they provide the most basic levels of knowledge, while also supplying some interesting points that would most definitely be of help to any advanced student.

This DVD set is certainly a must have!
