    Have a look around your local area and see what martial arts classes there are around. Consider taking a couple of different ones to get your standup, clinch and ground games trained. Then read the Tao of Jeet Kune Do and consider how the principles contained therein can be applied to your continued training.
    Don't try to learn it from a book or DVD because you just can't
    Good luck :)

    Ah, good call since, you know, you can tell whether he himself can learn from a video or book.... Oh thats right, I forgot, it must be impossible...

    Unfortunately for those of us that live outside of movieland, it is
    You might (I stress might) be able to get some moves down from a video but all the time you're not training with a qualified instructor there's no way you'll know if you're doing it right, plus you won't be able to apply them if you haven't trained with a partner in a class environment. Have a look through the myriad of "teaching yourself" threads.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm a big advocate of books and DVDs as a supplement to your learning - they can give you new ideas to try out in class etc, but that's as far as they go

    Well, look to attend seminars around the country. some of the material presented in a one day or two day session can last you for a good while.
