    Straight Blast Gym DVDs

    So I'm thinking of burning some cash on some Straight Blast Gym (SBGi) material. I didn't see any recommendations using the search function except http://devballs5.bullshido.net/forum...t=17097&page=2

    Now, considering that I really appreciate Matt Thornton and all the other instructors' philosophy, way of explaining or grouping ideas/principles/techniques, as well as their approach to clinch, ground, and striking within the context of MMA...

    What should I get? http://www.straightblastgym.com/store.htm

    They're wildly expensive for a full set, so I want to choose carefully. If I don't get a solid recommendation for a specific disc or 2, I probably won't get any of them. In case you haven't heard, there's a recession.

    Aaaaaaand....go!

    I'm specifically looking for recommendations on which is the best SBGi video. For me. Read my mind, damn you!

    The instructor tag refers to my days as a karate instructor, to wit, "ex-Isshinryu."

    If I were to buy a set, I'd go with Spring Camp '07.
    Wide variety of techniques covered, logically the most up-to-date (Matt Thornton updates his curriculum constantly).
    But really, I can't make a suggestion for you, as my telepathic abilities are suxxxor atm.

    What do you want out of the dvds? Better at the clinch, stand-up or ground? Aliveness?

    I want clinch surfing, guard surfing, fundamental fives, aliveness theory (like the string of Youtube videos), MMA methodology/integration of striking and grappling, and any SBGi-emphasized or SBGi-specific drills. I'd prefer material that relates to clinch and ground with striking.

    FJKD 3 is awesome, that should be the first go to. Then look at the camps DVD's depending on what you're looking for.
