Great Series! Get Them All!, A Customer (Amazon reviewer) April, 2004
This DVD has Courses 5,6,7, & 8 out of the complete 12 Volume series. Dr. Yang is by far the best teacher on the subject of grappling, and this entire series is fantastic. The DVD is cheaper than buying all of the VHS, and much less expensive than a seminar, but he really puts it all into this DVD. The instruction is very clear, and he has students attempt the technique and corrects their mistakes, which is great to learn from. My partner and I make these same mistakes at first, and find ourselves watching these corrections often. The DVD itself is all digital picture and sound and has tons and tons of DVD-only content, like Video Clips of Dr. Yang doing kung fu and tai chi in other videos and a catalog that sends you right to the YMAA store on your PC.
