This 3-in-1 single-DVD set is simply a compilation of the same chapter titles' original single discs: "Top Position" / "Bottom Position" / "Standing Position". A previous reviewer complained that the instruction "went too fast". It may, but modern tech' allows easy rewind so regardless of any valid criticism that the instruction "moves to quickly", it's no reason not to buy the DVD. I own it and it's a mix of techniques and drills. Solid. It's almost more difficult to review a good DVD than a bad one, so I'm about to tap out here... Good solid instruction.

A big plus on all the materials covered. The downside is that everything is presented too fast-- so there is much rewinding/play/rewinding. Another plus is how he demonstrates many drills, more than most DVDS.
