Filming Started on New SiJ Video

Martial Arts of Tucson's Shiden'issen Jujutsu program is pleased to announce that filming has commenced on their new promotional video, tentatively titled "SiJ2," the long-awaited follow up to the program's original internet sensation, "Shiden'issen Jujutsu: Arts of the Samurai." Like its predecessor, the new video will deliver a thrilling showcase of SiJ's uniquely diverse core curriculum of throwing, grappling, joint lock and submission techniques. To set it apart, the new video will also provide viewers with some much needed upgrades.

The most notable addition will be an original song, currently in development by composer Rich Katz, which aims to stylishly complement the more dynamic visual approach to the video's equally intense action. The song will also circumvent YouTube's stringent copyright policy that left the first video without a score on that site. Although, the original can still be seen here.

Among the other updated plans for the video, viewers can expect a more personal focus on the special camaraderie that makes SiJ more of a family than just a class. The audience will also be treated to a clearer picture of how techniques are taught and learned, a rare glimpse of a belt-awarding ceremony, and a more cinematic opening segment that will introduce one by one the dedicated Jujutsuka of SiJ. And to properly memorialize and convey the action, the entire video will be shot in hi-definition.

To date, the original video has garnered over 85,000 views on YouTube. Expectations for "SiJ2" are already soaring above and beyond this soon-to-be modest achievement, so stay tuned.
