Yes,
We are planning on doing that when we are up and running. We are planning to start off with german longsword for now....we are not that many here. And to be frank only 2-3 of us would be regulars right now. The video idea is really good, we feed a lot from videos, plus everything we can read.

Hey Mike,

I want to call dibs on your instruction over Skype, if you're interested. I'd love to do a couple of hours with you and a few of my group members on introductory tatami cutting.

I'd also love to set up an instructional time with someone if they'd like me to teach. Jose, where is your group located? Jonathan Mayshar and I have done a whole bunch of work on introductory materials, so maybe we can help you out there.

Hi Jason,

Sorry I didn't see this earlier, I don't often read forums these days. I'll email or PM you. Though in all honesty I think you are too advanced to gain much benefit from video training with likes of moi.

Ha! I don't know about that, but I do know that we could use some instruction in the fine art of cutting. Our last attempt at tatami left me feeling that we were missing some element in the equation.

If you put the videos up in Martial Techniques under a thread with your group's name and 'videos' you'll get plenty of feedback from those who view it. If you want something more personal, perhaps PM anyone you like here and they can help you out one on one. I've noticed there are lots of people here who know how to teach and properly critique video and plenty on this thread seem willing to do it.

Best wishes!

Posting video can only do so much. Distance learning is about live instruction. Of course that's limited also, but it's a lot better than video critiquing.
