    decent instructional video

    hey guys.. I live in an area where there are not many quality schools nearby.. currently I have been taking Mi Zong kung fu, and will be starting BJJ soon, but I was curious about other arts as well.. I was wondering if instruction videos are actually worth watching? I already know sparing is at least 50% of training, so that is mute, but do the videos help you build a framework? If so, is there any good website out there that sells different types of videos?

    naw brutha sorry,

    Bas Rutten has good instructional videos on pankration, The Gracies have some very detailed, complicated submission moves in their videos.

    This is what i mean by 98% of training is sparring- here is a typical class

    Total - 2 hours
    first 30 min, warm up stretch
    (Sparr warmup - fight for double underhooks)
    hour & half - technique sparring
    (i.e. elbow escape, foot-sweep - and then you literally do that for 1.5 hours to your training partner... for those who dont train, basically those two moves are done to make a "reversal" to your sparring partner, in which case, your partner than performs the "reversal" on you, and so on and so forth)

    Total - 3 hours
    first 30 min, warm-up stretch
    second 30 min, technique review (sparring at 10% resistance)
    third 30 min, new technique (ussually complicated submissions)
    next hour & half is sparring


    BJJ is a VERY, VERY, VERY team oriented sport

    Yea I agree with BJJ comment, so I will most likely be going to a local BJJ school. There are 2 in the area, and seem to be fairly good. I was just interested in learning some Muay Thai, or other art that isnt taught in my area.. but if they had Muay Thai around me, id be there every day! Thanks for the input.
