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.
