Vol 1: ATTACKS FROM THE MOUNT - FRONT AND BACK: The mount is the most advantageous position in a fight. In this tape, you will learn devastating finishing holds that will enable you to effectively capitalize on this position. Also, you will be surprised how many opponents will turn on their stomach when trying to escape from the mounted position. Royce and Rorion show you how to easily finish your opponent when this happens.
Vol 2: ATTACKS AND REVERSALS FROM THE GUARD: Many people mistakenly assume that the man on his back during a ground fight is at a disadvantage. They are wrong. There is no such thing as a bad position if you know what you are doing. This tape will show you what to do, even against a much bigger and stronger opponent.
Vol 3: OFFENSE AND DEFENSE FROM THE CROSS MOUNT: Once the fight goes to the ground, the cross mount is a very common position. Royce and Rorion show you an arsenal of techniques they use to train police officers and military elite. They also show you how to defend against your opponent if you find yourself on the bottom.
