Learning the Martial Arts through DVD is quite possible. When shopping for a DVD, however, there are several things you should be aware of. These items can make a difference between a learned ability and stuff laying on the sidewalk.

First, you should select the martial art you wish to study. If you have a little experience, this is easy, especially if you decide to pursue something you already have a knowledge of. If you don't have experience, then you need to consider several things.

The first thing you should consider is the art one that you can study alone? If it can't be studied alone, do have a partner willing to commit time and energy to the project? Martial Arts that are taught through forms are more easily studied alone, but an art such as Aikido, on the other hand, demands a partner for nearly every single move.

The same as when shopping for any martial art, you must pay attention to the instructor. Fame is a great thing, but can Mr. Fame get his idea across on video? Does he present the ideas in concise method and are they understandable?

Whether on line or in a store, when inspecting the DVD take a look and see what, exactly, is being offered. There are many possible methods when it comes to teaching, and when dealing with something such as a whole martial art, you must be careful. Look for beginner, intermediate, or advanced advices on the advertisement, depending on what you are.

Now, does the fellow offer just forms? It would be better to have some applications, and even a few minutes of fighting to see the progression of application, from forms, to applications, which are pieces of the forms, to applications in the real world. Forms are great, but without some example of what they really mean, they can be next to worthless.

Take a close look at how Mr. Action Star is going to teach the material. If he is showing one form, and making the proud claim that you will be able to see his every move from eight angles at slow mo...pass on it. If he is going to teach several forms, and he shows two angles before going through the form while going over every point, this is good.

In summation, let me say that you might waste a buck or two when pursuing the martial arts through video, but is something you risk as you sample through various styles and interests. Still, one of the greatest deals in town is the price of instructional DVDs. The doors of perception are going to open when you find what you want, and you will become more fit and better able to defend yourself, and, ultimately, the answer is that you will be able to learn quality martial arts from DVDs.
