Employ an aggresive moderator(s), who is knowledgeable in grappling, ignore everyone's input. After he judges the technique based on it's technical merit, the moderator then explains his reasoning and the move is deleted or kept on the site.Shut the hell up and train.

I would like to see encouragement by the staff urging the user base to be more realistic. A few administrative notices to the effect that they want this website to be known as a repository for solid technique, not gimmicky junk would be nice.
Basically, trim the fat and try hard to encourage lean, healthy growth.
I hope you understand that I am genuinely upset about the state of things on their website, and not just looking to be an asshole and make fun of the work they do. That's why this thread is in our dedicated and heavily moderated grappling forum, and not a more general subforum where grapplers and non-grapplers alike are free to take potshots at the website in question."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

The sad thing is, you're allowed to rate techniques on the site. But the ratings are clearly meaningless when "superguard" gets 5 out of 5 stars. I'm suggesting that people have be brutal in their ratings and reviews, but Jesus Tapdancing Christ . . . 5 stars?
Edit: I'm going to visit the parents for a few days, so I may be out of touch for awhile. I may not be able to answer any questions or PMs until the weekend."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

lol @ superguard, although I have had strong n00bs try to squeeze me to death from guard: kicks the **** out of the sqeezer's leg muscles, while being mildly uncomfortable for the squeezee.
Here's my real question: what's with everyone grappling shirtless at this place?
How many of you guys do this at your gym? It can get pretty humid and the weather is warming up here, but everywhere I've been it's generally considered the unspoken rule to always wear a shirt while grappling (unless you've a gi overtop of course). Sure if guys are training for an MMA fight they might when they're mixing up strikes and guys will take off their shirt to wipe down after class, but never during rolling or drilling.
Am I alone in this experience?

Superguard looks like a riblock I was taught early in my career, except the guy's doing it wrong.
His arms are on his thighs, when they should in fact be on the sides of his knees. And his knees are above the guy's back, where they should be on the sides of his body, lined up with the floating ribs.
I've tapped at least one purple belt who outweighed me with it, so I wouldn't consider it crappling. The top guy getting a forearm across your neck will make it difficult to finish, but it also gives you the opportunity to switch off into an arm triangle and/or take his back, since he's putting his arm on your throat while you effectively have double-underhooks.
This is not to defend lockflow, since I don't really read the site and I don't know if their techniques overall are any good.

I do agree that there should be more panning of poor or marginal technique. I think I will start doing that myself.
There is no reason why people cannot join and start to rate the techniques, and post your comments on them. Why not start a thread in their forums? Thanks for being so civil about your concerns too.

OK, Guys here I am, one of the creators of Lockflow.com. Lockflow.com allows anybody to contribute techniques. Yes we get crap sometimes, but we also get good stuff -We don't discriminate- We've got joe schmoe in his basement to UFC Champions, if you dont like it then don't use it - and give it a bad rating. If you've got a better one - than submit it. Be proactive. Thanks for your time, and hopefully you wont get your guard passed by a backflip. :)

I just registered at Lockflow. I am going to be down rating the 5star gimmicks. I suggest you do the same. Veiw the grappling tech then sort by Rank.
Anything with 5-stars needs to be solid against at least an experienced Blue Belt.
