Application-based Instructional DVDs


"I have completed watching your [Patrick McCarthy] excellent 14 part DVD series.  I was so impressed ... especially by the two-person drills you have designed for different subjects.  I have never seen such comprehensive drills ... my mind is still spinning with the comprehensive two-person drills you have designed for tegumi, nage-waza, kansetsu/tuite-waza, shime-waza, and ne-waza.  With over 200 techniques in the drills, you have done a great service to serious Karate students around the world." - Charles C. Goodin, Hawaii Karate Museum"


Hanshi - Took me a while to collect my thoughts, after being glued to my computer for 20 hours NON STOP to watch all your DVDs. After that I watched them over and over again. I did expect a lot but what I've seen was beyond anything I'd had imagined. I thoroughly enjoyed your very knowledgeable and humorous explanation on kata theory, tegumi drills and bunkai on the first 8 DVDs. However, after seeing DVDs 9 thru 14, I was totally blown away by the amount, depth and detailed information presented. I have been doing similar drills and techniques before, but the context you presented the material in, its research value and ability to learn from the extensive flow drills covering different aspects of combat is something I have never seen  before. I find these DVDs to be most educational source on karate ever - which so many of us have been searching for. You brought respect back to the art, making us proud of our karate heritage and roots, proving that Okinawan karate has been and still is one of the most effective self defense methods ever developed. Thank you for sharing this extensive knowledge with us!!!  - Borut Kincl, European seminar instructor

 "I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation as well as the material presented. It's packed with educational value for anyone interested in unlocking the "secrets" of kata. Every time I see PM Sensei in person or on video, it serves as a reminder of how far I still have to go in my own training and research."
