I finally completed my review of a new sambo instructional series featuring Vladislav Koulikov that is available from shogun media. I made a post several weeks ago saying I would soon post the review so apologies for the delay. Since the series has 10 dvds with each dvd running over an hour in length, it took me a long time to watch each dvd and make notes. Most instructional series now days are 3-5 volumes so you are getting a ton of information in 10 dvds. It didn’t help that during the holidays I was besieged with relatives and whenever I would try and watch one of the sambo tapes they looked at me like I was a lunatic. Consequently, I had to wait until everyone was in bed before I could watch a volume.
First, since video reviews often end up with the reviewer being attacked like lions on a wounded zebra let me say I don’t work for shogun media nor did they ask me to do the review. Secondly, if shogun media doesn’t like the review keep in mind its only my opinion so other forum members may have completely different one. Lastly, I have not seen any other sambo instructional so I can’t compare this series to others that may be out there. I must admit being pleasantly surprised by this instructional series. It is solid and a good series. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. That contrasts with another instructional dvd that I got last week that was somewhat disappointing
