Review for The Women's Warrior Workout

This is an excellent workout. It is a great core strengthening and balancing workout in a very short time. The end includes good stretches. The techniques of the workout are immediately useful for self defense while strengthbuilding. The repetitions of each set make it more instinctual. One of the very best workouts I've found. She does not waste time or energy. The abdominal workout does it all with no wasted moves. Highly Recommended.

Review for The Women's Warrior Workout

This is one heck of a workout - not for a beginner! I purchased the VHS years ago about 2 months after I joined our dojo. It keeps your skills and heart rate up. My husband who is strong and has always been fit skoffed at it initially and then I challenged him to do it "just once"...well LOL he couldn't complete it and couldn't lift his arms above his head for 2 days! He swallowed his words and his pride and agreed this was the most intense workout he has ever had - if you are looking to get into better shape and learn some self defence - this is your DVD - you won't be disappointed.
