I am looking for some self defense DVDs primarily for my girls who are at or near college age who are unwilling (or not yet ready) to take up martial arts.
There are, of course, very many out there but most seem geared toward martial arts fans or hard core survivalists. Krav Maga, for example, seems very practical but it is overkill.
One set I have found that meets my requirements is "Captain Chris" Close Combat Training. It is very simple and consistent with what I know of self defense. But although I am less concerned with his over-the-top self marketing than some, he has got a lot of detractors out there. Several people have accused him of billing them for vitamins they didn't order after buying his DVDs.
Are there more reputable self defense DVDs out there? Something that will impart a basic knowledge and perhaps spark an interest in martial arts.
