If you don't have a vast knowledge of all the grips, yeah go pick it up Secret Weapons. Do you want to know how to get as fast as Jojo? Then you should probably pick up something else.
There's many different areas to study, Secret Weapons was very focused on technique obviously. I would say this DVD is not for people, esp. intermediates who want easy answers on how to develop fast and controlled hands. Also, it's more of a distraction (at least the "fun" stuff) :), or misguided lead-on to anyone who doesn't have a reasonable background and fundamentals.
