Bas Rutten - Big DVD of Combat/MMA Workout/Street Defence
Unless you have lived under a rock you have come to know and love Bas "El Guapo" Rutten, his personality and sense of humour especialy. Reviewed here will be three of his teaching products starting with the Big DVD of combat. The first thing to mention about this DVD is that if your expecting the funny Bas then you will get your moneys worth. Bas brings his comidic aproach to the combat techniques he presents and the DVDs are really fun to watch, which is great when learning.
Some may argue that Bas may not have been the best grapler or whatever, and that would be a matter of opinion so you should know that the majority of the DVDs is made up of grapling techniques. Its dificult to rate the techniques, they are definately not bad, Bas shows many moves that he says are his own personal creations. One thing that you get from this DVD set is the feeling that Bas really went all out and is giving you everything he has, all his secrets, while some other fighters seem to be holding something back ( perhaps because they are still fighting and dont want others to know their secret) You'll find no bullshido there and overall its definately a good package to get even tho it is a bit expensive its definately worth the material that you get
Next is the Street fighting, not much to say about this except that it is great. Bas provides some very inteligent and straight forward techniques from his own street fighting and bouncer experience with some techniques from Krav Maga and Karate. It is a very funny DVD so check it out and the content is excellent
MMA workout: This is the workout Bas says that he has used himself for his fights, basicaly what you get in the package is a range of different workouts each one with a specific area such as a Muay Thai fighting tape for example, or there is a Boxing tape, and an all round workout tape. The workout tape is a good example, basicaly, in the DVD Bas will show you exercises or punch and kick combinations and either asign numbers or names to them, then during the exercises tape Bas will shout the combinations for you to do and the time to do it while motivating you the only way Bas can. The all round workout has all the combinations and exercises while the Boxing would focus on punches and the Muay Thai on punches and kicks and so on. Overall its a great tape to have when your alone and want to get motivated, you wont find many new exercises here so your paying more for the motivation than anything else. Enjoy your spending
