    Depends who your teacher is.

    Tanner's Law - No BS MMA and Martial Arts

    Diesel--for the third time, nobody was saying that yoga is a way to learn to fight. He was saying that in the absence of fighting instruction, maybe one should focus on other physical skills. You are saying that in the absence of fighting instruction, one should learn from DVDs.

    I think learning from DVDs is like kata: Yes, it can be done productively. But the overwhelming majority of people don't do it productively, and the likely result of doing it is negative.
    Thanks for the link. I should have guess this had been discussed by you guys.

    Im pretty sure that this > yoga for the purpose of getting ready for a martial art, with or without a bag.

    Let's look at a 15 year old deluded LARPer spazz working out to that tape, and go from there.

    Don't forget you have to steal their girlfriends too. However, that only works if they aren't willing to gamble a stamp to get a FREE book. As soon as they send away for that amazing offer, you're pretty much screwed.

    Have you considered changing your definition of good and lowering your standards? Like I know that the canned response around here to what should I train is boxing mt judo bjj sambo wrestling kyokushin and a few others, because they're consistently good. But there are a lot of other arts that aren't as good but are still better than nothing, or good sometimes. Is there anything like that around?
