I basically lit a match to $77.00 on this. If you're looking for an instructional video that will blend wrestling into your gi jiu-jitsu game, look elsewhere. This is pure rubbish for jiu-jitsu players. The ENTIRE set is collegiate wrestling techniques, none of which have been altered to work in a jiu-jitsu match. The folks here at Budo missed the mark on this one. Not a good set, sorry fellas.
I write this in order to help people who look for good instructional DVDs to take a closer look before spending 77$ on this one.
The title is misleading, because a lot of techniques here are not for BJJ, I watched the first two volumes and had to take a break because I got a little annoyed. The instructor talks in pure wrestling terms about pinning and getting the fall, which is totally useless in BJJ, please correct me if I m wrong. What is shown here is just normal wrestling with no special adaptions made for BJJ. And for that there a far better instructionals out there.
Pinning and riding is all good, but it must lead to a superior position or a submission to be an effective strategy in BJJ, spending the first volume alone on pinning to the fall alone is enough reason to want the money back for this nonsense. Bottom line: The techniques shown are good pure wrestling techniques with very limited direct application for BJJ, this could have been a good instructional if the techniques would have been modified in a way that work in the BJJ ruleset and the instructor should not use wrestling language to explain if this is for BJJ.
Yeah very disappointed wish I would not have bought this, you guys should think a little bit before recording just some random stuff and sell it.
