Yes I do think training from DVDs is fine. If there's no school in your area for an art you wish to learn, where else do you turn to other than a book or video?

Actually, since I keep my chin quite low when I box, even if I box offensively, I tend to look shoulder-/chest height on my opponent.
But I guess it's a bit of a "How long is a piece of string?" kind of question. I would assume that your height makes some difference too.
