Hi, I saw a good review for these at BillLewis @ aol web page, but would like other opinions.

Did you feel you learned techniques that you wouldn't find in usual bjj / submission grappling classes, and also able to put them into practice in sparring?

He shows the common positions differently (I like the way he teaches the scarf hold and side mount). There are some nice neck cranks on the tapes. I'm horrible at leg locks so I can't really comment on those. I tried using one of the chokes today after a failed arm bar but somehow managed to screw it up...

Some great no-gi stuff on there.
Good positional stuff, really great neck crank stuff, some great leglocks, some modified armlock stuff.
LOTS of detail on the basics of the Americana & Kimura, and the same for the achillies lock and heel hook.
Virtually nothing from the guard position. All of the above are from dominant positions -mount, side mount, or inside a persons guard (Tony says directly to the camera, inside someones guard is a dominant position - shows some cool leg stuff from there)
The Wastrel - So attractive he HAS to be a woman.

His top game stuff is great.Not a fan of the bottom game stuff and he shows no takedowns.
The stuff he shows is for a slow tight game, not a fast loose one normally accociated with lighter guys.
But as I said, I like his descriptions on sinking weight and keeping position.
I hear he stole most the stuff off a japanese instructional, and don't know nor care if it's true.But clearly Tony knows leglocks and neckcranks well.
Of course he is insufferable in some ways too with his not so subtle rips on BJJ and his talking as if he is a god of grappling.

I don't know anything about Tony's background or where he learned catch, but there is a lot of good stuff on those tapes. I got it off of ebay so I think the way he shows the scarf hold, further nelson, and a couple others were worth the price I paid.
