A point brought up on the BJJ vs Kung Fu thread made me think. Since qualified BJJ Black Belt instruction is not widespread in most areas, how much of your training is drawn from instructional videos?
I have always watched videos for ideas. First, when I didn't have an instructor and now when I have two but neither are close enough for regular interaction.
I know that some instructors look down on video lessons, as indicated by a previous thread in one of the main forums here. I think in BJJ it is much more acceptable because it is so much more competitive on a regular basis (sparring every class).
