    What a load of shit, it may not be as effective as having someone there showing you the moves and correcting your technique but it's a damn good alternative if you don't have a coach or if you want to expand your game.

    The reason most people cant get anything from watching instructionals is because they do just that....watch them.

    Without eager training partners and lots of time to drill the techniques then yeah maybe they're pretty useless but I have learned a lot from them.
    Yes but instructionals are most usefull for people who have experience, I can learn a submission from an instructional because i have grappled for 20 yrs and know how the body works in general when grappling. A newb would make mistakes without realising it and get that bad habit wet wired which then takes time to unlearn.
    I would say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing! You need to have understanding of fundamentals and that just cant be taught from instructionals because there is no feedback.
