        Nice to see that there are buyable books and videos, but are there any more videos on the net for free?
        Im a kendoka but I like to watch those videos.
        Thanks for helping.

          heres one although there are not many about. I was posting one tachi uchi no kurai waza at a time on mine, but as I have 55Mb of space and each waza is 36Mb, it would be sometime before all of them were up.... its probably why you dont see many...

            That's a pretty extensive resource. Best I've found, and it's MSR! A bit suprising to me, at least, it seems there are far more MJER practitioners out there.

            The Nishi Kaigan (sp?) website used to have a few kata up.

              If I was to recommend abook for seitei gata I would recommend this one
              http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/...647251-9338714
              (Sorry about the link but I don't know if the forum supports kanji)
              Videos for MJER
              I would recommend
              http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/...647251-9338714
              and
              http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/...647251-9338714
              Both are the videos made by the Great Iwata Sensei (I think Chidokan would vouch for him
              As for books I would recommend
              Iwata sensei's book
              http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/...647251-9338714
              and Mitani Sensei's
              http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/...647251-9338714
              This book is fabulous and comprises of about 2000 photographs that illustrate the techniques brilliantly.

              I wouldn't like to dictate where to buy your Japanese imports but I think you might find buying them from Amazon.co.jp or another Japanese company such as buyubooks.com might actually save you quite abit of money.

                iwata sensie is top man

                get anything by him especially the videos

                he never ceases to amaze when he comes over

                how can a 90 yr old man bend that far back in uke nagashi when i cant do it at the age of 20?

                he really likes toffees too

                  He also 'acquired' a large quantity of fudge from me while we were at Keswick...hmm, perhaps I have found a culprit for the missing cream egg...
                  Rottunpunk, You WON'T bend that far, not CAN'T, idle students, mutter, mutter, moan, moan... I will not accept the fact that you have broken your legs while younger, they should have healed by now....
