    If you try to learn solely from video you will miss the small details that are so important! You will miss the necessary corrections from and instructor that are also important.

    I have had more than a few people come to my Training Halls through the years having learned BJJ from video. They missed the details and were played with by IRT practitioners during rolling.

    Hands on instruction is essential. Do not fool yourself!

    Videos are great for supplementary training, refreshers and inspiration.

    This comes from someone who markets and sells DVD's and videos around the world...

    I agree that to get deep into an art, you'd need some significant interaction with an instructor. That interaction may be sporadic, which will slow the process, but it is necessary.

    EDIT: Odd, this isn't the post I was quoting. I was quoting your post about the need to have an instructor, rather than learning entirely from video. Not sure what happened.
