Men's WKC Team Competition (2 videos) December 25, 2006
Reviewer: Carlos O from Mexico  
Good coverage of the semi-finals and finals of the WKC in Glasgow on the second video, with slo-mo and commentary, which makes it more educational for the beginning Kendoka without much exposure to competition at this level. The first video has highlights only, and is not informative unless one has an experienced eye for quality Kendo.

Unfortunately the entire four hours is filmed from the same vantage point in the stands which makes for less interesting viewing and obscures several of the points scored.

We look forward to better overall production values for the coverage of Taipei WKC in 2006...!
