There are a number of things that make this DVD set a fantastic purchase. The quality of the picture and production are of a professional quality and as good as any you'll see. Whereas previous Self Defence/Martial Arts DVD's I've seen have used boom microphones, giving an echoey feeling to the sound, the sound on these DVD's is clear and the camera work is also steady and clear.
The techniques demonstrated in this set are, I would say, the most effective you'll find in dealing with 'Real' confrontations. Basically speaking, this stuff WILL work! The techniques are shown in at full speed and then brilliantly broken down to explain the moves piece by piece. Again, the camera work and the positioning of the Instructors ensures this is done in the most effective way. These techniques really are the ones that will serve you if you find yourself in any number of unavoidable confrontational situations.
I will add that Stewart McGill is one of the friendliest, most genuine approachable guys you will ever come across. This is a big reason to invest, and it is an investment, in this DVD set. He is interested in any comments and questions you have and welcomes input and feedback. If you only invest in one Self Defence/Martial Arts DVD set, make it this one.
