In particular the Bo.

Check out the Kissaki Distance Learning Website:

Below is an excerpt from one of the monthly downloads:

Here is what one subscriber recently e-mailed us:

I wanted to tell you I appreciate this month's master class video. The footage of the officer beating served as a great illustration of so many themes I encounter studying karate. That video alone expresses the need for realistic training! Where do you get those great videos? A collection of real violence footage helps narrow the discussion with those who tend to honor their ritualized training and have rarely, if ever, found themselves in a violent encounter. Thanks for all you do. David
