    Some clips from the Yoshiaki Fujiwara "Submission Master" video instructionals. Fujiwara was a long time student of legendary catch wrestler Karl Gotch and has trained many Japanese wrestlers and MMA'ers.

    The clips look cool, but I don't know **** about grappling, so I posted it here to see what people thought.

    The armbar and kneebar were executed well.
    The head scissors with a twist seems shaky - real low percentage move.
    The triangle had basic info in it, but was executed poorly and would not stand up under pressure the way shown.

    This is all IMO of course, so, whatever, but.........

    Kneebar: Where's the set up? the hold is not tight enough, i.e., control of the leg, you should not be extending your arms and pulling the leg to you to perform the kneebar.

    Armbar: Angle, hip thrust, was a bit too far toward the head. Someone with a strong arm, or who is quick enough to react to the sumbission attempt, could easily push the leg off of the head and roll back. The leg keeping the body down was angled toward the head making the roll back counter easier to perform.

    Triangle: Where's the set-up? The hip angle and entry seemed wrong to me and the ability to cross the trapped arm over your chest was oversimplified.

    The Neck Scissor/Crank: Is crap IMO. Very low percentage move. Chingy is right in that it would not even survive simply controled randori.
