Karate, Self-Defense, and Mixed Martial Arts Instruction Added to Zipidee Marketplace.

San Francisco, CA, January 27, 2008 -- Zipidee announced that several prominent martial artists have joined their rapidly expanding network of sellers. Video content from Pat Miletich, Bill Wallace, Glen Boodry, Frank Shamrock, and Lauren Kearney, among others, is now available in their marketplace.

Featured disciplines include Karate, taught by Bill “Superfoot” Wallace, a national champion point fighter, Mixed Martial Arts, taught by Frank Shamrock, Randy Couture, and Pat “The Croatian Sensation” Miletich, and Self-Defense, taught by top government counter-terrorism specialist Glen Boodry. The videos offer instruction at all levels, for beginners through advanced students. They will be available on-demand to consumers around the world through Zipidee.

In addition to Karate, Mixed Martial Arts, and Self-Defense, consumers will find videos on the popular disciplines of Aikido, Jiu-Jitsu, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, and the Bruce Lee created Jeet Kune Do. Lesser-known disciplines such as Capoeira, an acrobatic martial art, and Wing Chun, an aggressive combat style, are available as well.

Expert tips by topic are also available in the popular and recently added instructional video series entitled “Learn to Fight and Win,” produced by Century Vision. In this series, former Ultimate Fighting Championship title holder Randy Couture reveals the secret to his remarkable success and demonstrates how others can train to become a competitive fighter. Titles include “Take Downs for Grappling” and “Ground Fighting from a Wrestler’s Perspective.”

Zipidee is the Internet’s largest digital marketplace for PGC (prosumer generated content) educational, instructional, and special interest programming. Zipidee’s specialized content selection is strengthened by the skill and expertise offered by champion martial artists such as Wallace, Boodry, and Kearney.

“We are excited to offer this premium martial arts instruction to our marketplace consumers. It is this type of valuable content that differentiates Zipidee from the entertainment markets such as iTunes, Amazon, and Hulu,” stated Henry Wong, Zipidee CEO.

The content featuring Miletich, Couture, Shamrock, Kearney, and the other martial artists is currently available at www.zipidee.com under the Martial Arts category.
