1.0 out of 5 stars beginner to black belt- how exactly?, 31 May 2007
This review is from: Kickboxing - From Beginner To Black Belt [DVD] (DVD)
The main content was 38 minutes long. Clearly Bill Wallace is good at what he does, and I'm sure those who attended the seminar this DVD was taken from came away much better practitioners. Oh, and at one point he advised his students to "watch Bruno-Cotzier tonight"- that took place in 1986! Wallace has done a variety of seminars, has his own group of martial atrts schools in the states, and continues to be much sought after. However I feel those behind this DVD let him down. Badly.
The students who attended may have improved, but you will struggle to upon getting this DVD. He gives a couple of hints and tips, and that is all basically. I have no idea how it can make the claim that it takes you from beginner to black belt. Perhaps it was reffering to the footage, which was taken from 3 different groups. The point he makes about closing up space was a decent one. So decent he makes it to two different groups. He also gives the same demonstration of a kicking drill twice. In a 38 minute DVD that just isn't up to standard.
You will be able learn more in your next class, whichever level you are at. Calling it "a complete instructional guide" is as misleading as it gets. It really is. Best off avoiding, instead go for something from the Pat O'Keefe series- it's pretty much impossible not to learn from them.
