I recently viewed a film called BUDO. It was an old film dealing with the history and technical aspects of many traditional art forms. It was the best and most informative film I have seen. I want to buy a copy very much, but can't find it anywhere. If you know where to get a copy or would like to share your thoughts about the film, please respond.
Thank You

Yeah, that's the best martial arts documentary of all time! I had an old VHS copy that I wore out years ago. I got a copy on dvd from here:
http://www.budovideos.com/eternalbudodvd.html

Btw, does anyone know the name of the guy that was doing all the tameshigiri (test cutting)?

Thanks,

Ryan

Nakamura Taizaburo was the the swordsman cutting the straw targets. Yes that is one of the best films of it kind I have seen.

Aside from the stridently 1970s soundtrack and an apparent need by the narrator to instill in us a feeling of "ooo, budo is scary!" an really excellent movie which I sought out again about 20 years after first having seen it. I also found it at www.budovideos.com .

How about the younger teacher who practises cutting, iai, kendo and zen? Is that "Tomoo Koide" from the credits? Anyone have any information about him? Very impressive.
