    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?

    At distance, I look at the eyes but remain detached to enhance reaction time. Up close, in clinch range, who cares.

    A sure way to reduce your reactive ability is to fully focus on anything during something as dynamic as a fight.

    Only a beginner would telegraph their strikes by staring at the point of contact before throwing.

    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.
