de braco -
I remember Lucero from Lapendas first WVC ppv where he fought Chuck Kim, I vacillated on buying the wrestler killer set for 6 or 7 months, but then the manic episode passed. I've regreted not getting them and haven't ran across them on ebay yet. I think i went with the walt bayless tapes instead.
Walt's tapes were better overall. But Lucero showed a couple cool things from De La Riva --for short guys in particular, as I mentioned.
You sound as bad as me. I was out of my mind at one point getting instructionals. Spent thousands of dollars --which back then was not hard to do.
Like, for instance, I had ALL of he Joe Moreira tapes (27 tapes?). It was just nuts. A few like the Women's self-defense were just pure filler, but there was some very good fundamental stuff buried deep in those tapes that I never saw anyone else teach, especially at that time. I think his tapes were kind of unfairly trashed. Well most of them. A few were terrible.
Eventually, I went through a process where I watched ALL of my tapes for a final time and wrote down anything I thought was useful, then sold all of them online. I haven't bought one since.
