  • Hachidan Test Documentary

    I found this video today. It's extremely interesting, I think. Lots of great insight. I thought I'd post it because others who haven't see it would enjoy it.

            It might be worth stickying a link to it. It is a rather good documentary. Pity there isn't a posted version without the Korean subtitles.

              That one posted today has english subtitles, although the vid quality isn't the best.

                it's about the best "translation" i've ever seen from one of these documentary vids, if i may say so myself!

                i watch the damn thing again, for the 3000th time just for the subtitles.

                    Every time I watch that, I root for Miyamoto, even though I know he won't make it. He's the inspirational one, of the two.

                          Miyamoto is the real hero here.....
                          Above all, he seems such a nice person!
                          The documentary is of the late 90'?

                            Is there any way to get an official, legit copy of this? DVD or VHS?

                              One can grade for hachidan outside of Japan right? If so, are the requirements equally high, or each country is different?
