View Full Version : Erik Paulson and Tony Cecchine

Got some of their tapes and I have to admit, some really great techniques and counters to them.

I would suggest both of them highly.

Waiting to get some of Michael Jen's Ultimate Guard Passing stuff.

I thought "his name was Robert Paulson."

I've been wondering if they were decent. Great to hear it from a legit source, and someone else who practices BJJ. Could you go into any more detail on the tapes?

"I thought "his name was Robert Paulson."" Hehehe.

I've been to a couple of Paulson's seminars, and I have several of his tapes. I think he's legit, and I have read good reviews on his tapes.

I have:

"The Mount Position" - http://sfuk.tripod.com/reviews/erikdvd_mountvid.html
"Killer Tackles, Takedowns, and Throws" - http://erikpaulson.com/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=6
"CSW 2000 Seminar" (I *think* that's the one I have. i don't have it handy.)- http://erikpaulson.com/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=10
"Vale Tudo - Cross Training" - http://erikpaulson.com/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=7

I really like the first three. He breaks things down, shows techs several times, and often shows entries and counters.

I didn't like the Vale Tudo tape, though. It is mostly drills (focus mits, cables, etc), rather than Vale Tudo techniques. I was disappointed with it.

If I had to recommend just one of them... well... I couldn't. It would be a close call between "The Mount" and the CSW seminar.

Bastard i was gonna say that.

So the Tony Cecchine tapes are good eh? I was just looking into them today and wasn't sure if they were worth the price. $200 USD thats the same price as 5 months of training 5 days a week.

Tough call.

They shot Bob, they shot him in the head.

I have a DVD on leg locks by Tony Cecchine, it was good but nothing earth shattering. Was expecting something, different, from a catch DVD I guess. Something I had not seen in BJJ, I guess there are only so many ways to break an ankle though.

I like Michael Jen's UGP DVD. It presents a good game, shows the basics such as correct posture and base and is well presented. It's probably the best guard passsing video material I've seen.

Thanks Bro. Paulson's stuff that I am going through now is the triangle. I haven't learned some of the defense and transitions that he goes through. One of my favorite parts is the transition to the triangle from the guard when you get passed with hip pressed down or the push out, and the hand on knee. Really great stuff. I'm itching to try it out as soon as possible.

Tony's stuff is attacks from the top saddle, or mount. Some interesting Short arm scissors, and armbar from mount. Great stuff. Some excellent attacks from side mount, that again, I can't wait to practice and try out.

Hope that helps!
