Thought it would be useful to have a thread collecting recommended MA documentaries:

Here's one I've run into recently...it's unreleased (you have to find bootleg...so I'm NOT telling you that you can get this on ebay ...*wink* *wink*)

THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR The Paradox of the Martial Arts.
A BBC series from the early 80`s.

The series list is as follows (each about 45 minutes):

1 Shorinji Kempo 'The New Way'
2 Kalari 'The Indian Way'
3 Aikido and Kendo 'The Sporting Way'
4 T'ai Chi 'The Soft Way' - also included Hsing Yi and Ba Gua
5 Eskrima 'The Philippino Way'
6 Karate 'The Way of the Empty Hand'
7 Kung Fu 'The Hard Way'
8 The Samurai Way

found a clip for you to preview:
http://x302.putfile.com/videos/c1-29916133657.wmv

looks interesting.

Typical A guy in the states finds a cool series made and broadcast under my very nose and I missed every one of em

To add to your list I only have two that have been discussed already, but they were ok.

Deadly Arts
Mind, Body and Kickass moves.

Ha-Ha. I found it first and you're mad.

what stinks is the ebay bootleg copies that I'm NOT going to mention *wink* are all UK-PAL format. I would need US-NSTC (but since I'm NOT *wink* going to get these bootlegs, then it shouldn't matter).

of course, one thing that we shouldn't do, Cord, is have me not buy the PAL version...then I won't copy and convert to NSTC...and then not send you the PAL version. *wink* *wink**wink**wink**wink*

that sound like a non-plan? {speak using the negative-affirmative code and with *winks* or *nudges* when needed for clearity}

Meantime, try this.

I think that would be terrible I would not be happy to recieve any such contraband and would definately never watch it *nudge nudge*. I am glad you have no such plans, however, if you need my address for...er....that batch of Matt biscuits you promised me, feel free to PM/email me

That's terrible!! I sure would hate if someone (Ed) didn't offer that to me as well. I wouldn't be willing to compensate him for the trouble at all either!!!

update: just got this in the mail today. because it's PAL format, I can only watch it on my 'puter with a DVD drive.
It's 2 disks and 4 hours long.

I'll convert it to NTSC (US & canada) - after figuring out how to do that so it can be watched on any US dvd player, and then we can finally start discussing the content of this program.

This thread may be my favorite of all. You all may think I'm foolish but I'm excited just to hear I met get to see this film. I'm not very good with computers, but my brother often goes to torrent sites, where people load and download from a network. Maybe we could share info that way?

Man sorry I feel like a little kid, to me learning about a martial arts documentary is like a 10 year old being happy about the new Harry Potter movie.

figured it out. the conversion is in the works. I've looked into and installed torrent and it's great. but I'm deciding not to go that route until I find out more about the legality issues. I'll get back to everyone within 2 days about this.
