NOTICE! At the eleventh hour prior to launching the site we have decided to remove most of the pre-selected videos. This is because we would like to encourage wider community participation and involvement in deciding which videos are important enough to include on the site. If you would like to voice your opinions or make suggestions please join us at the Video Exchange Board located on our forums!

Videos are listed in four basic categories:
TRAINING VIDEOS - These are videos in which the primary function is to provide classroom training ideas, exercises, and drills.
TECHNIQUE VIDEOS - This is where you will find video presentations of techniques from various WMA systems. You will also find proposal interpretations of specific techniques. In some cases opinions may vary resulting in multiple theories and so 'video discussions' (between one or more practitioners) of specific interpretations may be included.
FENCING VIDEOS - Here you will find assorted videos of people fencing or grappling from a variety of systems. As there are hundreds of videos of this type available, the examples here will mostly focus on events such as tournements and "Martial Challenges", as well as, fencing videos that contain good quality fencing and/or specific plays for observers to reference.
PROMOTIONAL VIDEOS - These are videos that have a specific story to tell or are developed to promote specific persons or systems. This is also where you will find videos that do not easily fit into any other category.
