Gift of Traditional Martial Arts is an exciting and thought provoking testament to the power of studying “Kobudo” – the ancient unarmed and weapon arts of the Ninja and Samurai.
Packed with never-before-seen martial arts techniques, this movie weaves seamlessly between the way of the sword and the way of peace.
From empowering a woman who lived in fear after being robbed at gun-point, to saving a spinal cord injury survivor who lost his will to live; this movie illustrates just how a 2000 year old Asian discipline of self defense has inspired and transformed thousands of lives.
Cable and movies are filled with overly-violent shows which glorify aggressive behavior. This movie is refreshingly different and uses the deadly fighting arts of the past to inspire rather than injure.
It documents the incredible benefits true, traditional martial arts can give to society and shows the public the once-secret world of the oldest Japanese traditional style of defense. – It is an awesome collection of movements, ideas, information and emotions.
This looks like a great docu. Really captures the feeling of what I am doing. This is a different style of Ninjutsu then I am doing, but I see some similarities. I want to go train out in nature so bad!!!
