View Full Version : Best companion DVD with Dojo Training
Im new to ninjitsu training and would like to better myself daily.
I am currently browsing the DVD listings on training DVDs and stumbled upon the "The Art of The Ninja series by Jack Hoban".
Will these DVDs assit me in proper illustration of the Ninjitsu art? I am currently enrolled in a GA based Dojo and the DVDs will be solely used for assistance in showing me the proper way of doing some of the techniques that I have learned and I might have forgoten. Allowing me to practise at home with a partner or solo.
Thanks in advance for any helpful tips :)
Jack's vids are very good. Keep in mind that each instructor may have a different angle of approach on things.

Thank you for the information. Truely sorry about the forum rule I broke
Not a problem
Another I found was:
Ninjutsu with Master Robert Bussey: Ninja Combat Tactics Series (http://www.centuryfitness.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?catalogId=10051&storeId=10051&categoryId=13809&langId=-1&parent_category_rn=13756&crumb=13501-13753)
Ninja Night Warrior DVD By Stephen K. Hayes (http://www.martialartssupermarket.com/index.cfm?action=showProd&subid=983)
How do I know which one is best :confused: Basicly what I want is a DVD that can use as reference and ease of use, not as main teaching tool. Im starting on my rolls and stances and sometimes I forget or Im not sure if Im doing it right.
Well, if your looking for help on basics, Jack Hobans series will work well for you. I own all of them and they have helped me in my training. The quality of the film isnt great and Jack Hoban may seem like a bit of a dork :laugh: , but he breaks down everything nicely. I dont know about the Bussey videos, maybe somebody else will help shed some light on them. If you have the money to spend on the Hoban series go for it. Best of luck to ya :)
I wanted to add something. You said "best companion dvd with dojo training". I dont think Jack Hobans has his series on DvD and plus I wouldnt say its the best companion video to go with training in a dojo on a daily basis. Go with any of Hatsumis dvds or vhs, most of them (if not all) are really good. I just bought the Takamatsu Dvd. The old training footage on it was well worth the money. :)
Hmm. Aforementioned Jack Hoban videos are a good thing...
PROVIDED, of course, you employ them as a supplement to your regular training with a real-life instructor.
Er, You DO have a real-live instructor, do you not? :up:
