Thanks a lot Johnny.
I only knew escape #3 and apparently I have been doing it wrong...

I like your description of the third escape. I always goto that one but I never keep hip bumping after the initial bump and pin of the leg. I'm sure that little detail will make a difference. I looked back at my training journal and sure enough that detail wasn't in my description. Thanks!

Probably because there's no doubt in their mind whether or not a particular move works. Its also much easier to show ground scenarios and make the techniques work easier than standing (you have a hold of your opponent and can control him, as opposed to standup where he can do what he pleases).
I'd imagine its more difficult to post pictures of striking techniques, since theres so much more than can happen.

Thanks. Good job mate.
I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
"Step away," I hissed.

"Why are grappling people more eager to post their techs online than other people?"
Thats easy. Cause in the end all that matters is mat time. A BJJ guy could show you all the **** in the world, but if you dont have the mat time to back it up then you wont be able to pull it off on my grandma.
Especially my grandma who is a BJJ black belt.

Thanks for this very helpful. Have been training escapes and reversals lately.
I have also learnt a variation of the first one whereby you can drop a knee on your opponents head or 'crossface' them with your knee. It's very painfull but would be illegal in BJJ I think?

I'm actually starting to think about putting together an instructional DVD and have spoken to a producer. I've got some ideas for instructionals that no-one else has done yet. I'll let you guys know more once things are underway.
