I was wondering how well the video at home training works from Shihan Richard Von Donk's website works and if he is credible. I enjoy training and as many of you know I don't have the time, transportation, or money to travel down to LA to train. So please give me your thoughts and comments cause Payday is Friday and I am ready to go!

Hello,

To be honest , i think its 'better' to watch some of senseis' videos and try to grasp the feeling. While i think this is what ninjutsu is all about.

Try to find out if there are some dudes in your neightbourhood where you can train with.

Greetings,

Steven Ramaker

If you decide to go ahead and purchase the course, just treat it as a guide, not as instruction. Also then, maybe purchase some of Soke's DVD's too. If you cannot make it to a regular instructor, then just do so when you can, but when you cannot, it is always good to have DVD's such as these as reference points and to help keep the enthusiasm alive.

they are an exellent reference material, rvd packs in plenty of knowledge, but they will never replace a shidoshi, more of a good gap filler. if you want to save some of your pay, i have a full set for sale(all originals!, ofcourse)

Is he credible? Yes. Does it work? Debated extensively.

If it were me, knowing what I know now, I would look first in other places. I believe Jack Hoban and/or Bud Malmstrom have stuff on the San Shin, for instance. One thing that also works is to get permission to tape a few training sessions with your instructor and use them for practice.

Who do you train with, BTW? I'm just curious; when I lived in San Diego I trained a few times with Kyle Hayes in Orange County. He's pretty good ...

The LA area is up to its eyeballs in instructors - some good - some not so good. If he is coming down from SB - I would assume he trains with Matt - yes?

Let me know if you want a list of the people I know in LA (I have trained around them all - AFAIK).

That sucks - I was there from 1999 to 2004. Would have been nice to catch up with you! I was running a training group in the North County.

If I had to choose an at home video training regimine, what one would be the best? And If you have one could you provide a website where I can view/possibly purchace it...

I'd say that in the end you'll need to have personal lessons, not only video tutorial, this might work for the starters. So, it might be best to contact the nearest teachers first, see if they have something along those lines available.
