    Default Tatum Videos

    I have never seen any of Master Tatum's videos. Could someone enlighten me as to the quality of the information contained in his video series. I am refering mainly to his technique series.
    Does he cover principles? What-if's? What kind of detail does he go into?
    The only other Kenpo videos that I have to use as comparison are Tabatabai's and some of Lamkin's. Tabatabai doesn't go into much detail; although, he does cover the shell of the technique pretty well.
    What about his Kenpo Strikes series? Are the principles of motion covered? What kind of information should I be able to expect from Master Tatum's videos?
    How does the Acumulative Journal rate? I have my old IKKA journals and Lamkin's journals (which, by the way, Rock!) to use as comparison. Does the AJ more closely resemble the IKKA journals?

    I know, too many questions. It is alot of money to spend, and I want to be certain it is worth it.
    I am some distance away from the nearest LTKKA instructor, so I would like to use the video method to supplement my training inbetween live instrution.
    Thanx in advance for beneficial answers.

    I think I may have put this thread in the wrong location on this forum.

    Sorry about that. Forgot I was on the lineage side of the forum.

    If you are looking for Mr. Tatum's videos in particular then you are in the right forum. I've had no experience with his videos, perhaps Mr. Seabrook could shed some light on the topic?

    LOL! I wish that I would have seen your post before I sent the moderator a PM to let him know this thread probably needed to be moved! Thought that the lineage page was only for questions/comments reguarding lineage. Oh well. Hope to get some good answers anyway.

    Thumbs up Re: Tatum Videos

    In my opinion the Larry Tatum videos are top notch, I had the forms videos from his old panther series (GREAT for review) and he did the forms pretty much exactly the same as I had seen in other Parker Kenpo schools. I liked his technique videos even better. Some techniques were hard and fast, some he spent some time explaining things like environmental considerations, family groupings, and SOME what if. I was happy with them and the ones I bought were money well spent. If you have MT's videos (as I do) I personally think there is a big difference in quality and depth of understanding in the material and I would reccomend Larry Tatums tapes if you are studying the traditional 10/24 system of Parker Kenpo.

    I have footage and videos of many different guys - Huk Planas, Larry Tatum, Mohammad Tabatabai, Lee Wedlake, Joe Palanzo, Frank Trejo, ect.

    IMHO - Larry Tatum's videos are the best I have seen thus far. He moves like none other, and he makes advanced concpets and principles seem so simple. The quality of the production is great as well.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you very much Mr. Seabrook! That's two very positive reviews for MT's video series. I will certainly have to pick the series up now!

    Has anyone besides Pete and I seen the new Tatum DVD "Engineer of Motion"? It is really well done and covers a lot of his seminar topics. It was filmed over several days in Chile (Mr. Tatum speaks english and has a super interpretor). I believe it is about 3-4 hours long (2 dvd's) and the cost is $39.95.

    I also have the Brand new 4 hours of seminars covering extensions on order the cost is $79.95. A little pricey but, I can't wait to see it! I'll let you know what I think when it arrives.

    Peace,

    Donna

    I was curious about the 4 hours of seminars one. I wasn't very pleased with his 'Extreme Kenpo' dvd. That's not the same one, is it?

    Do let us know about the seminars ones.

    No, Amy the Engineer of Motion DVD is not the same as the Extreme Kenpo. I haven't seen the Extreme one. In the Engineer one he covers a lot of the techs he's been doing in his seminars (Triggered Salute, Lone Kimono, Twin Kimono, Shielding Hammer, Raking Mace, Wings of Silk, etc.) I'll be sure to post my review of the Extension DVD as soon as I look have it in my hot little hands (after viewing it of course!)

    Peace,

    Amy,

    I have never seen the "Extreme Kenpo" DVD. I have a bunch of his videos and truly like them all so I am interested in knowing what you didn't like about it.

    I have most of the technique videos and all of his kata videos and I really like them too.

    I just watched the Extreme Kenpo video and to me, it played more like a long commercial or a documentary about Tatum. I didn't watch the whole thing, but the part I did watch was not especially instructional.
