My combat hapkido instructor is friends with Julius Melegrito and he told me to email him about the Eskrima interactive lessons. Obviously it's video, but also you can email questions to Julius directly to get answers or tips as well. I know that having an actual instructor would be much better, but, I don't have that and the closest place is an hour and a half away, which I just cannot do. I just wanted to get some opinions. He does seminars and such, so I could do testing and that sort of thing either online or when he comes to town, but I don't care about the belt part of it. I just want to have the correct technique down.
