Video: Raptor vs Ichiban

In the eighties, pop video makers had carte blanche to do what the hell they liked. Some videos remain classics of their time, others were, shall we say, 'experimental'. For a visual kinda guy, I've only rarely dabbled in video production. It's just not something I am very good at. So for this little number, let's file this under, 'experimental' and I hope you at least can enjoy the battle of the debutatant gi designers:

Cool! Although you got me unduly excited with the'80s ref. I was expecting shoulder pads, face paint and keyboards. Alternatively, you could have gone with this. ;)

LOL It was more a comment on my slapdash video editing technique and cheesy graphics. But yeah, next time, more blusher and spikey hair!

You might want to consider checking out Alex de Souza's if you're still in Bournemouth - I've heard really good things :)

As we're speaking of '80s and music, I'll randomly throw up this link. Awesome, awesome series.

I look forward to bringing down my not-designed-by-me gi and hitting the mats in Bournemouth. :)

Defo gonna check out Alex's gym when I am next down there, just couldn't fit it all in in the short time I was on holiday.

Son, I Am Disappoint.
No blush? No lipstick? Not even eyeliner?

Great stuff, ahah. I'm thinking Scramble's Ichiban would look equally well in royal blue, black and even white albeit that would probably require a darker shade of yellow/orange.

If this is an example of your "experiments", I want more!
