Julio--
I am incomplete agreement with you on Mike's coaching methods. They are excellent, very easy to follow.
What really got my attentiion was his ability to "walk the walk, not just talk the talk".
Mike just doesn't make DVDs, etc.on theory; he does what he teaches, and does it well.
I also recommend his DVD for Mixed Martial Arts, it's right on track.
Move with strength,
