    My little cousin is really getting into MMA, I want to buy him a DVD about MMA basics for his bday. Anyone have a heads-up on the ones to check out and the ones to stay away from?

    Something with the whole package, standup/ground, offense/defense, subs, etc..

    thanks in advance, sherdoggers.

    i suggest you dont buy him instructionals
    they can be boring as hell

    I assume you/he wants to learn MMA? Best bet would be to actually go to a school.

    If you dont' have access or you want to gauge his interest before signing a contract, I would suggest getting DVD's that focus on the different aspects rather than an all-in-one package. For one, there's a lot more available than MMA instructionals (though they are getting a little more common).

    Boxing/MMA dvd's available from Title
    MMA Instructional DVDs | MMA Instructional & Documentary DVD, Videos and Books for Training | Boxing Training Accessories and Gear from Title Boxing

    BJJ instructionals from Budo Video
    Budovideos.com - BJJ Instructional

    What actually got me interested in MMA was the classes and then the instructional vids. Now I enjoy watching the fights, whereas they weren't too interesting before.

    I can see, however, how instructionals would be boring. Maybe try getting him both? A "best of" DVD and a basic instructional?
