Suggested Training:

Each Volume should be trained four to five weeks before progressing to the next DVD. Complete Volumes 1 - 10 in roughly one year's time. It is strongly recommended that you begin with Volume One and progress step by step. Skipping any part will result in a lesser understanding and ability. You may order any DVD separately but you will have a lesser understanding and ability without the prerequisite Volumes.
