Hi guys. I just bought Mind Body and Kick ass moves on dvd and it says on the front that it is series 1. Does this mean they are going to bring out another series? If anyone knows that they are bringing out another series please keep me informed. Thanks
Also which was your favourite episode?

I am not sure about a second series. My favorite episode was the Filipino MA one, with the blindfold sinawali, and the making of the poison blades. I liked it firstly, because I study Kali so it was right up my street so to speak, and second because it showed a little of Crudelli free sparring, and he seemed quite good, so added a little credibility to the series for me; unlike that Josette Du Normandeu who does 'Deadly Arts' who quite frankly shows no aptitiude for anything she investigates- they never say what her black belt is in, but the grading cant have been rigorous IMO

its quite a strange show really. he'll show some really good stuff like the kali/escrima show but then in the same show a new japanese 'art' called shintaido where the master forces one of his students to run round using only the power of telethapy!! then again that art did have a quite good thing of sensing someones intent from a short distance.

in one episode he shows a (i beleive) 3rd dan okinawa (sp) karate master doing a couplke of kata and demonstating some moves and showing the difference between sport karate and the directness of okinawa karate (i know actually want to start okinawa karate as it seems to have a lot of things i think about in fighting).
but he then spoils the episode by showing a master and champion of one of the knife kali arts but instead of showing the art the guy takes him round a market and shows where to buy the best medalions and good luck charms!!!

not sure if anyone will read this but just thought i should add that Josette Du Normandeu's black belt is in aikido, which is possibly why she couldnt get to grips with arts such as capoeira!!

But doesnt explain the complete lack of balance and coordination, nor the seemingly complete ignorance of Japanese martial culture that she displayed
Sorry, I am sure she is a nice person, but surely, in all of the known world, there were more suitable candidates for showing the MA to the world than her?
