Saito Sensei gives an excellent demonstration as does his son, Hitohiro Saito. There is an interesting split-screen section where ken and taijutsu variations of techniques are shown at the same time. In addition, Saito Sensei and Hitohiro Sensei are interviewed close-up, and viewers will gain a good glimpse of their respective personalities…

    Justin Christou was at the Iwama dojo for just over eight years, from March 1995 to June 2003.
