Transmutation Details

Aiki DVDs, Karate DVDs, Sogo Budo DVDs

I must admit: I read the blurb about videos for thinking martial artists and thought, "Ooh yeah,  her ewe go again. But a pleasant surprise! A well thought-out, well presented, informative set of videos. The Transmutation videos will not gather dust! I believe the more I use them, the more depth of detail and greater understanding will be mine. A deep, long Rei to all involved. --Gilbert Ross, Lancashire, England

TRANSMUTATION was the best video I have ever seen. --Jim Edwards, Shito-kai Karate, Colorado

A Lock is a Block is a Blow is a Throw


3 DVDs, 5 hours, TS, $99.00 Transmutation Set


Hanshi Bruce Juchnik (Sei Kosho Shorei Kai) and Shihan Tony Annesi (Takeshin Sogo Budo) teach you how to unify the arts by showing that, with small adjustments, a Lock is a Block is a Blow is a Throw. Bruce Juchnik is known for his relaxed presentation of unusual concepts. Tony Annesi is known for his organized and clear analysis of techniques. With them, you'll move from style to style, from technical shape to technical shape to bring many martial arts into the same family. Learn how the formof a technique varies not only according to function but also according to historical and cultural preference. The differences in styles are often not in effectiveness but only in appearance and sometimes in mere incidental detail.
A Lock is a Block is a Blow is a Throw. When you can transmute your favorite blow into a throw, you have soft within your hard style. When you can transmute your favorite lock into a block, you have hard within your soft style. (90 min.)

Juchnik applies his concepts to the use of a blade. Annesi unifies the theme and transmutes advanced techniques back to basic ones. The circle comes around. As an experienced martial artist, you do not have to practice every one of your 10,000 variations to stay skilled. You continue practicing basics, but perceive them with "a master's mind". For you, the advanced becomes simple because it always resided in the basic. Now you can transmute the basic into the advanced at will.
