    If you want to the whole gambit covered get Bas Rutten's Big DVD's of Combat the DVD's are simply awesome and your can watch Bas choke out his uke......over and over again.

    Or just look harder for some real instruction.
    This one caught my attention:

    Roy Harris - BJJ over 40 - http://www.royharris.biz/catalog/i19.html
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Do Bas's DVDs cover all the material in the Big Books of Combat?

    I don't have the books, I've rumaged through them but I don't own them, so I'm not positive but I believe the DVD's cover most if not all of what is in the books.

    Hatmaker's stuff is o.k., thorton is definatley better. I would recommend them both, but watching does not equel actual rolling time.

    Does anyone know where hatmaker learned his Jiu-Jitsu or Catch wrestling? Also, I plan on getting the "Floor Bag Workout" DVD when I start grappling, I've heard some good things about it.

    Jesus fucking christ. What is the appeal with these A-Z grappling instructionals?
    Go train with a proper instructor, and get in-depth instructionals on a specific skillset when you want to work on a particular area of your game.

    Angry Welsh don't listen to these guys,they are obviously BJJ enthusiasts.They obviously badmouth anything they unfamiliar with.I happen to own THE COMPLETE GRAPPLER DVD SET as well as BEYOND BRAZILIAN JUJITSU (which compares both styles and exposes the weaknesses in BJJ)and most of his material thats on dvd and book format.His method of instruction is the best that i have seen.It's easy to follow all the techniques ,which are performed in detail.Of course you will need a partner to execute these techniques.I highly recommend his material.
