Pros and cons of Marine Martial Arts app for iPhone and iPad

Marine Martial Arts app good for

This app is really great for learning martial arts. I highly reccomend this app.
I love the app just wish u had an entire chapter based on different types of weapon use other than that its amazing
It would be cool if there were videos. Some of the moves confuse me so videos would help a lot and make the app more awesome
I did every single martial arts and this covers a lot for bggenrs
Guys great job on the app I find it helps alot fit filling in the gaps the only thing I want to know is will you ever add video, and if you may add content on handcuffing technique Thanx:)
I love this app. It gives nice, in-depth information on a vast amount of techniques. I highly suggest that you buy this app, althought I have one suggestion: videos. Either way, though, this app is still very handy.

Some bad moments

App only covers first two levels of MCMAP and a splash of third level.
I am a Marine Martial Arts Instructor and the techniques are out of date and wrong!!! Do not follow these!!! DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!
The title and descriptions are very misleading they only cover general areas of blocks strikes and counter strikes not the actual thing the moves are also out of date
