The Georgian Grip series by Vlad Koulikov is another excellent instructional that adds an extra almost 'hidden' element to your stand-up grappling game. Vlad is a great grappler and Samboist, but also has the second art of being a brilliant teacher. Highly recommended along with all his instructional DVDs.
Thanks for the review. Yep, he's a great competitor and instructor. A true student of the game. Always learning and adding jiu jitsu to his arsenal of Judo and Sambo techniques.
All of Vlad's instructional material is top notch and the concepts are very easily retained by the student. A great instructor with excellent abilities to communicate the concepts and understandings on a level that just remains retained.
Vlad’s ability to convey grappling concepts in way that sticks is much appreciated. Well done guys!
