This is a documentary style movie.
24 July 1999 | by (South Coast ~ England) – See all my reviews

I viewed this movie many years ago ~ but to date I have been unable to get a copy due to it now being out of production.

The film deals with the various Japanese Martial Arts collectively known as Budo ~ finishing with the Katana (Japanese Sword) and it's awesome power.

If the Movie does not grab you, the last few frames will !!!
