Samurai Film Fighting
Become A Swordsman! Samurai Movie Plan
Introducing a plan where you can become a swordsman and film a samurai movie where you fight professional stuntmen. After learning classic martial arts and the art of drawing your sword from a world-famous professional sword fight choreographer, start filming right away. Experience stealth, movement, and continued awareness that you can only learn from a Japanese sword fight choreographer and become the star of your own samurai action scenes! You can also receive a tutorial about the choreography of your choice, from movements that embody the heavy feeling of Kurosawa movies to speedy performances like those in anime. After filming, your movie will be edited and sent to you at a later date.
The iaigatana sword is made of wood! The weight is easy for both men and women to handle!
