ABOUT THE NEW DVDS WITH (SIJO EMPERADO ) HIMSELF DEMONSTRATING!!

Mr. Faircloth, I have the VHS tape set with Prof. Forbach.  Were the DVDs you refer to produced with different material or are they the VHS set converted to DVD?  Thanks.

For the record GM Forbach has produced two sets of videos cataloguing the Original Method of the Aleju Reyes school.

The first set was done for Panther Productions and featured GM Forbach and his students. It was the first of it's kind done on Kajukenbo material. The production values were less than "Hollywood" quality but, as I mentioned before, this was the first time. I don't know if it is still available from Panther productions. They were bought out by Century Martial Arts and I have never seen them issue this material.

The second set was done with Sijo Emperado's active (and on screen) involvement and GM Forbach also included performances by his school brothers from his days at the Reyes academy as well as a special section on ground repetitions by GM Alan Abad. The "ukes" were all GM Forbach's senior students. The production values were much better with the pacing, presentation, and over all look (sound, lighting, etc) was much more professional. This set was originally issued in the VHS tape format but was also issued on DVD a few years ago after the VHS tape format became obsolete. GM Forbach's WKO is the only distributor. This is the video series to own if you don't.

Hope this helps.

They still offer them through their website.  At one time, they were selling their Panther DVD's for $6.99 a piece and I picked up the set, just to have it.

Here is the link to the WKO DVDs.

Having both sets of dvds, I would recommend getting the WKO dvds.  The material is broken up by belt level through all the grab arts, punch counters, knife/club defense etc.
