This is an awsome dvd, and as usual, Master C. Machado shows the BJJ game "in use". Thanks from France!
I agree. Carlos is one of if not the best at teaching on video. In this case showing you how to actually use the hook flip against resistances and really gets the theroy across. Great dvd. I just wish he would put more topics on DVD. The guy is great.
The single best DVD ever put out, by anyone. Yes... better than Revolution, or Ryan Hall, or Damian Maia.
It is not the most complete collection obviously, since he focuses on one move for about two hours. However, in those two hours you get the most intense breakdown of technique and theory on that position that could be given. Machado really makes you believe the technique is "unstoppable."
I was blown away, and I think the DVD should be the model for all other series. The theory is so much more important than just showing a bunch of movies. If you truly understand the position you can anticipate your opponents reactions and that makes the sweep work so much better.
After watching it I told my training partners that a DVD like this could only be made by a few people. This is a guy who has spend 40+ years training this position. He truly understands it, and it shows.
Watch it for yourself and you will understand what I mean.
The hook sweep is my favorite sweep for a simple reason: Because when done right it is, as the title of the DVD says, unstoppable. Unlike most sweeps it doesn't rely on timing or your opponent's momentum. You get your grips, and your technique is perfect, then your opponent cannot stop it.
Taking that attitude, this DVD is worlds beyond anything else on the subject. At a certain level you realize that BJJ (like judo) is not about having lots of techniques, but rather taking several key techniques to an incredibly powerful level. In this DVD Carlos Machado shows how to do that for the hook sweep. Not a bunch of lame entries or weird variations (like most DVDs), just the key details to execute a dominating hook sweep. I totally agree with the reviewer above that this is what an instructional should be.
I'd love to see similar instructionals on things like the cross-knee pass, or the cross choke from top control -- similar basic techniques that, when done with enough aggregated technical skill, are almost unstoppable.

Only if you want to make it easy, you have to know all the details.... So Carlos Mchado is the best to show you every posible situation and make it easy.
This sweep has become one of my favorite sweeps now. I hit the sweep at least a dozen times per week. Carlos Machado attention to detail is amazing. On a side note, I did have problems playing the dvd straight through. After each chapter the DVD would start back to the main menu.

This dvd is great. I agree with the previous posts. My only complaint is the same as "Michael" and my dvd must be restarted after each chapter. 100% on info...but that portion is lacking. Overall, still a great (superb) dvd.

Just pure knowledge! We need more dvd's like this that teach a move with all it's theory and concepts to make it high percentage rather than another dvd with a lot of moves.
