If you want to learn how to deal with common attacks you need to train with people who throw them at you in an alive environment. Sly's videos are going to be as useful for that purpose.as watching The Matrix for learning Kung Fu.
Yup, that's why I said in my post "I'm interested in this kind of training." In Sly's case, he has been on the receiving end of violence, which makes what he has to say and what he considers to be of value to be something of interest. The same goes for being interested in what policemen who practice Aikido say, or other people in security fields who do.
