I have his submission book and savage strikes, there really is nothing revolutionary in there, but nothing that jumps out as a reason not to buy them either.

bjj is all well and good, but sometimes it just gets too complicated and focuses on too many irrelevant details.

I don't know if its the same technique, but there is a double armbar in bjj- often you can get it from the guard when the other guy has no idea what he is doing, and trying to simply choke you with both hands like a crazy person.

I'd agree. I would encourage watching his RAW DVD's over the commercial and book stuff. They are more down and dirty, straight forward, easy stuff. Also, a lot of info in a short time and technique specific. The submission wrestling explanations are worth listening too and considering. They are, as said above more interesting when contrasted and compared to BJJ.

Yes, i have seen it and really like it but I have a wrestling background. This is geared for the wrestler so could greatly enchance your aresenal if your a BJJ guy. I a big fan of Hatmaker, one thing I did was rent it online at goldstarvideo.com it took about 3 days to come in. I also picked up some mark furey there. Over all it video set and worth buying

All books and DVD's and video are basically martial arts porn. If you want the real thing, go to class.
Sometimes the porn is better than the real thing. Usually not.

We haven't had a catch wrestling thread in a while. Which is a shame, as this ancient one showcases a gallery of the forum's best posters who have left (sans The Wastrel).
