I’ve been a martial artist for 9 years. I’m a brown belt in jiu-jitsu and have trained in boxing and kickboxing.
This is the best material I’ve ever seen for using open handed striking. If push came to shove and I needed something to save my skin quick, this is the stuff I’d use first despite all my more "technical" martial arts experience.
The high points are the open handed striking instruction and the excellent weapons instruction (by far the most realistic, practical weapons defense instruction I’ve come across).
The low point of the DVD’s is the ground fighting instruction, which I found a bit TOO simplistic. As I said, I’m a jiu-jitsu brown belt, so it is hard for me to bracket that experience, though; it might be great ground instruction for someone with no ground experience.
Besids the techniques, Grover is certain to explain principles and give drills. This is an awesome DVD.
