*WHY STILL PHOTOS?*

We first thought of making this application with video. But as we played around with it we found that by merging the two mediums we really could create a lightweight application that brought the best of both worlds together. Each move was shot in video, and then we picked the key frames that we felt emphasized the details we wanted to teach. The play button allows you to see the frames in a flip book mode so that the motion and momentum within the moves is not lost.

We've found that using the frame by frame method of instruction allows you to take in moves at the pace you want. You can jump around fast or spend lots of time scrutinizing a particular frame until you get it just right. Video forces you into the pace the instructor takes. We allow you to take your phone onto the mat and work the details.

Our goal with this app is to offer information in a seminar type format. Many books and videos try to give an overview of the art, starting with the basics and offering techniques from every position. With this application, we are trying to simulate the information you would receive in a seminar. We are planning on bringing in other black belts and professional fighters to do an “online seminar” and show some of their favorite techniques. Please leave us feedback if there are things you like and things you think we could do better. Good training!
