Does anyone know of any available kata video's/dvd's other than the Kodokan titles? Some of them are not available on dvd yet and they are all rather expensive. Thanks.

I believe in the media forum URLs have been given for freely available recordings. Of course, you will have to settle for the fact that they will range from ultra-crappy until astounding. My favorite one was the one of Itsutsu-no-kata performed by two long-haired 18-year-olds in blue jdgi ... It was ... eh ... extremely 'inovative'.

If you really want to play a cheap, Greg Fernandez recorded one tape for the JA back in the early 1990s which has 9 kata on it and is available for almost nothing. You have to accept amateur video recording quality as well as the standard of the performance, but it is still a lot for very little.

Unfortunately, the video is no longer available for free online. They now SELL it ! However, there are still some pictures left: http://www.budogala....utsuNoKata.html

You willl find some great videos, some selling for as much as 70.00 on http://www.youtube.com . For example, people post classic film of Kyuzo Mifune that are up for bid on Ebay.

For about ten to fifteen dollars US less than some site, you will find some great videos at http://www.budogu.com . Most are available on DVD and/or tape but make sure they are fit for consumption.

Anyway, you will find a lot if you are pretty good at searching http://video.google.com .
