- It was "meh....." Review by Tony Bologna
Value Quality Price
I got this DVD out of curiosity....well I shouldn't have followed through. Rory Miller is pretty knowledgeable, but the information given in this DVD you could have gotten from just straight internet searches.
In a nutshell.....he doesn't teach you moves because he feels teaching moves does not prepare you for actual attacks that happen in real life. Instead, he teaches principles....(i.e., how an elbow bends, how a wrist bends, how fingers bend, and how the shoulders bend). The bulk of the DVD is Rory with a group of volunteers. He shares the the principles of how the joints move and let's the group experiment on each other...then he walks around showing them how to get out of various joint locks and says if their joint lock was good or not.
So in conclusion, 1) Rory Miller is a knowledgeable guy 2) DVD was too expensive for the information given 3) the principles of how joints move...you can figure that out using google and then experiment with a partner in a safe controlled environment and save 30 bucks.
In short....spend your money elsewhere.
