What are people saying about the
Here are some comments I have received from
For those of you that have not purchased a
copy of Kevin Brazier's DVD I highly suggest you
do so today. I just watched it for the first
time and I must say is has excellent
techniques and clear comprehension of what
is being applied. Edited and very clear to
follow, even has slow motion in many
sequences that are demonstrated. Excellent
job Kevin...... when is the next one?
I honestly cannot but give it five
stars. This for the following reasons:
a) Both a form very representative of northern-style
kung-fu worth learning it and very useful mantis partner
drills are shown in here. They constitute rare material
not easily available in the western world.
b) The material is fully instructed in a
self-explanatory way by both repetition and slow motion
-besides it includes traditional names and applications.
Provided you have already some martial arts background
you have an excellent learning tool here.
c) All of the elements of background, music and outfits
reveal an aesthetic ambition that make this production
really appealing and original. Among this aspects I like
very much the mix of jazz, bossa nova, Mexican music,
etc. It's a relief not having to hear "The General's
Mandate" again. Not That I do not like it, it's just
that you are hearing it everywhere that has to do with
kung-fu these days!
I hope you have a great success with this disc. It's of
the best that you can buy to learn kung-fu.
With my best wishes
whole breakdowns of the mantis techniques (mantis keys
such as ou-lou-tsai, etc.), kicks, and so on, with the
extra of showing them in frozen images, allow a very
detailed appreciation of the material you are
The way you introduce the techniques with your
student, and repeat them, show not only the way they
work, but also how to train them.
Really, I wish many
people could learn from your DVD. I have quite a lot of
books, DVDs and VCDs on kung-fu, but your is top
