I got to watch a tape by Shoto Tanemura sensei on the jo..
This was a wonderful tape full of energy and power with the jo..
His movement was pragmatic.
He covered the jojutsu in real time movement and slow movement speed...
The basic points about the jo were covered with the forums he demoed.

The filming was poor and the music was very poor.

I really enjoyed this tape and you can see why so many follow him as students.

Questions:
1. Production/Tape Quality: Based on video and audio clarity, plus overall 'look'.
ky, poor tape editing and poor music.

2. Instructors demonstrated skill level: does the subject look like they know what they are doing, and look confident doing it.
ky, a master of the 'jo'. Complete control.

3. Comprehension Score/Immediate Understanding: How knowledgable do I have to be before making use of this?
ky, must have experience with the system of kukishihnden ryu to understand the tape or experience with jojutsu waza.

4. Degree to which this will make someone a better Martial Artist: Will I improve after watching this?
ky, yes.

5. Score on delivery vs. hype: Does it meet what it claims?
ky, yes.

6. Degree to which we'd recommend this product:
ky, 1 to 10.. I give it a 9 for content.

7. Wasted Time (The higher the number, the less "fluff"/repetition): How much dead time or 'filler' is in this, based on the claims.
ky, none.

8. Playback Score/Watching it over-and-over again: Would I watch this again?
ky, yes.

9. Would I purchase more of this company's products:
ky, yes.

10. Overall grade based on cost vs. value: is it worth the cost based on overall value of the training?
ky, very good for the cost.

11. Beginners benefit: Is this of use to a beginner?
ky, see #4

12. Intermediate benefit: a mid-belt type.
ky, see #4

13. Advanced benefit: an expert?
ky, see #4

14. Time to benefit: How long before I can 'learn' something from this.
ky, the feeling you get from this man is really great and the movement is very powerful.. I feel anyone looking for pragmatic skills will enjoy this.

15. The need to buy additional tapes to understand this one: Do I need more, or is this good to start?
ky, see #4

Ralph,

Thanks for the review.

Clarification for all, that want this tape. This tape was not meant to be for the public, but for his instructors. This tape is no longer made since 2001.

As for the music that was performed on the earlier videos, I believe the music was performed by one of Tanemura sensei's children.

As far as I know, there are no plans to make new videos for jojutsu.
