Secrets of Champions I - Reviews

Secrets of Champions

Once again Jim Jenner and his team have produced a pigeon video of true class. As we have come to expect from Jim Jenner, all aspects of the video are of superb quality from sound, production, filming right through to the jaw dropping content. I thoroughly recommend this work of art as the purchase price will soon be repaid in the hundreds of hours saved in pursuing the success that the purchasers will surely achieve if they take heed of the "pearls" it contains.

This new DVD by film maker Jim Jenner is both thought provoking and informative. It gives the average pigeon fancier an insight into why the top men in our sport win seemingly ‘out of their turn’. It is not chance which makes them successful, but close observation, thought and attention to every detail. This, combined with a willingness to learn and modify their methods is why they are successful.

Every fancier can learn something from this DVD. Some will learn things they never knew, other will reflect on having altered their system to the detriment of their performance.

This disc will hopefully help to address these changes and enable them to refocus and return to the simple basics of success.

This is a truly valuable DVD which I plan to view many times.

This group of top fanciers have a consistency in their thinking and methods from which all of us, still striving for success, can learn.

This is a terrific video! It will both inform and MOTIVATE you. It's not like anything that's come before. All of the champions who take part are true gentlemen of the sport. The way they are interviewed, the flow of what they say, and the relaxed and honest way they come across makes you feel like you are sitting in on a private conversation with the crème de la crème. The knowledge that they are sharing is clear, honest, basic, and so logical. A lot of it you know, but hearing them say it makes it real, and it's long overdue to remember this in today's world of potions and miracle cures. It has motivated me because these "dangerous men", as Jenner describes them in the movie, are winning by doing things right, and it gives you the information on what that is!

The section on respiration and the throat was mind blowing. It inspired me to look at my birds in a whole new way from the next time I step in the loft, especially when I'm picking my breeders. After seeing this video you will never use paper pedigrees alone to decide your matings ... it will be based on what you see in your pigeons!

If I have to be a film critic I should mention that all the good stuff is there. It's professional, good picture, pro quality, all that. But Jenner's movies have always been in a class by themselves. This is not a promotional loft visit. I know I'll watch it over and over.

That said, I should shut up about this! You wouldn’t want to buy this DVD and show it to your club mates. Oh no, It is a precious video and if you really want to go to the next level, listen to sound advice given by the best in the sport who quietly get on with their training, year in year out. But it is so well done I just have to sing its praises and hope my competitors don't hear me singing!

 “Even though I’m in “Secrets of Champions” I can strongly recommend this new film to pigeon fanciers all over the world. There is too much sand in too many eyes that needs to be washed out! Jim Jenner’s new movie will truly help you learn to look at the hobby, and your own birds, in a different way. This is one of the very few pigeon movies that is not meant to promote pigeon sellers or products but to promote the PIGEON SPORT itself.

After watching this new DVD from Jim Jenner, I would like to congratulate Jim, and everyone involved, on what is one of the best films on pigeons I have ever seen. The section on the throat theory makes it worth the money on its own.

I have watched a number of films by Jim Jenner and each one is a masterpiece.

Fantastic video!! I watched it with my good friend and mentor, Tim Kirshner, and we both agree...one of the most informative and entertaining videos ever. You exceeded my expectations!

Thanks for relighting the fire in my loft,

“Secrets of Champions” is another masterful production from Jim Jenner. Experienced fanciers and novices alike will benefit from watching Jim’s latest production. I only wish this video was available 30 years ago! I would have climbed the pigeon sport learning curve much faster. I hung on every word the Champions had to say as they revealed “secrets” I did not know existed and reinforced some principles I learned over the years the hard way. Their observations about the marketing mentality that permeates our sport resonated with my own thoughts about the folly of spending huge sums for birds that are not worth the paper their pedigrees are printed on. I thoroughly enjoyed the video and have recommended it to several of my friends.

the best dvd on the pigeon sport September 18, 2007

Although I'm just getting started in the pigeon racing sport I've had a keen interest for many years - as my dad raced when I was a boy. I have 4-5 different pigeon videos in my collection. Without a doubt Jim Jenners Secret of Champions I&II are by far and away the best - No comparison. I ordered SoC II first, and before I finished watching it I ordered the 1st one as well. Not only is it highly informative and educational, It's also very entertaining - something most other pigeon videos are lacking I've found. Just a fantastic set of dvd's to add to ones library.
