Thanks for you review! Yes these video series are older, but the information is still great and relevant today. Many of these instructors were in their prime at the time of filming, so it's great to get their perspective and knowledge then. We do have a full video from the series available to play for free, so you see exactly what you're getting before you purchase. Thanks!
