I'll have to admit, I never really liked Tito Ortiz as a fighter. That said, I really enjoyed this set of instrucional vids. Tito, for all his ring attitude really presents his techniques in a manner that convinced me he's more interested in actually teaching me something than getting royalties of his vids (contrary to some other well known "family names" out there). I have a Brazilian Jiujitsu, Judo, Hapkido, Muay Thai, and TCMA background so I am not very biased one way or the other. The way I evaluate techniques is I get together with a training partner and work through some of the stuff and see:
1. How easy is it to pull off? Can the average Joe succeed in attacking/defending with the moves regardless of physical condition or do the techiniques require a herculean workout routine to be usable?
2. How usable is this stuff in modern MMA? How usable is this stuff for real life self defense? Is the guy purposefully taking the opponent down for a guard submision? (really stupid in a real streetfight)
Tito gives you the feeling that he's your personal coach and painstakingly goes through all the fine points of the tecniques which I might add, are very workable for the "average Joe" and somewhat unique from what you can find on other vids. He also tells you how to fight against particular "genres" of fighters and emply techniques to thwart their game plans. A really good set of videos that I would check out if I were you.
