  • An invaluable resource Jun 17, 2020

    Iain has really outdone himself with this app. Thousands of videos all in one place. The menus are well organized, you can easily find content relating to whatever kata or training approach you are looking for. I could not recommend more highly.

    I was really excited to use this app and I can see that there's some great content on there but the app is practically unusable on my phone (Google Pixel). Videos take a long time to load and I can't pause, skip or rewind.

    It is overwhelming how many resources are at your disposal. Must have for martial artists!

    Amazing content from Iain as always. If you are reading this review you probably already know who he is. There is plenty of content here, it is well organised and well worth the money. However the app itself is very poor. It is constantly buggy, I can hardly get through a video without issues, it is slow and feels dated. I understand that the budget for an app like this isnt massive, but it still could be much better as it is just a fairly basic content delivery system.

    Content is amazing! But the videos are very stop, start. The videos will pause then take 30 seconds to re-start. Any fixes?

    I have been training for over 30 years and always on the lookout for a way to get to the next level. This is it. You have a wealth of training information at your fingertips that goes where you do. All ranges of combat are covered, along with conditioning drills to keep you fighting fit. Download this app. You won't be disappointed.

    Great app for those in the Practical Karate community. Kudos to Iain and the Budocode team for constantly bringing new content every week. More than worth the asking price. I only deduct one star because of some minor bugs that occasionally happen when playing videos and for lack of Chromecast support: It would be fantastic to cast the videos of the drills and bunkai to a TV in the dojo in order to follow during training instead of watching in a tiny phone screen, and casting the screen from the phone is not the best solution.

    This app is very user friendly with lots of great content. The layout makes it easy to quickly reference the application you are looking for.

    Fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to develop themselves and their martial arts. Mr. Abernethy puts out great content and is always looking for ways we can improve what we do and further the traditions of martial arts.

    I learned of Mr. Abernethy through his YouTube channel and was impressed with not only his expertise and erudition but his ability to communicate the material in an enjoyable manner. When I attended one of his seminars, his open and friendly demeanor convinced me he was going to bring great things to the practice of world martial arts. I am an early adopter of this app and recommend it to any colleagues and students looking to increase their understanding. Don’t hesitate and get this app!

    Very organized and helpful app. Menus and interface are easy to navigate, no problems with loading videos or podcasts. As always, Mr. Abernethy's material and knowledge is top notch.
  • Superb content Oct 14, 2018

    By Calaron
    This app has amazing content for anyone looking at the practical application of a kata.If you only ever seen them at stupid dances in a weird looking pajamas, then this is something that you really need to take a look at. If you love kara, this is definitely the app for you. If you want to learn more about karate’s application in real self-defense, this is an app for you. Iain’s insight is nothing short of profound. Being able to see new content so often has expanded my horizons as a student and teacher.

    Essential training aid for practical martial arts. Some fantastic content for solo practice, especially relevant at the moment. Plus the ability to network with the like minded

    Amazing content with great updates each week. Plagued by some annoying bugs, so not exactly elegant in its functionality but the sheer quality of Sensei Abernethy's videos makes this ap a must have fir all aspiring karateka.
