In addition to their functional role, we realize that martial arts also serve as cultural artifacts. Instructors who are invited to lead sessions at our labs, are exquisite ambassadors of their traditions. Furthermore, as we do not expect repetition of themes, we have chosen to carefully archive and curate the videos of each of the sessions at our labs. 

While videos from our labs might be available for purchase, serious researchers are welcome to peruse our archives at no charge. The dissemination of the scholarly aspect of martial arts are just as important to us as the warrior perspective.
