Resident SAMBO expert and all around man of the people Sambosteve, submitted this review to the Martial Arts Instructional Book and Video Reviews (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=59) forum of our new Reviews (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=50) section:

Igor Kurinnoy’s Sambo For Professionals 3: Physical Preparation for the Fighter.

What most people don’t know is that in addition to kicking serious butt, Igor Kurinnoy also holds a Ph.D. in Exercise Science. This new instructional is the winner of the All-Russian Contest for the Sport Scientist.

Having trained with Igor and experienced his rigorous conditioning routines first hand, I was very excited to get a look at his new instructional…and it did not disappoint!

Forum "Bully" DdlR added his review of The Bartitsu Compendium, Volume II: Antagonistics (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=75399). Here's a snippet:

Although primarily a self defense system, Bartitsu was promoted by MMA-type tournaments in which European wrestlers were challenged to compete against Barton-Wright's Japanese champions in submission matches, harking back to the early days of the UFC.

Basho posted this review (http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=73826) of a book on traditional Karate entitled "Four Shades of Black"

“I know that Okinawan Goju Ryu contains all of these things because Chojun Miyagi Sensei told me… he did it through kata.”

Four Shades Of Black

Supporting Member Liam Cullen broke out his analysis of JongSooPark's Takewondo Instructional DVDm Mastering Tae Kwon Do Versus Muay Thai, Karate, Mixed Martial Arts and Much More.

...The first art to be covered on the disk is Muay Thai. Park starts by talking about the stance he adopts when fighting which seems to be a pretty standard back stance. He talks about covering his body with his front hand and his head with his rear. This system he explains allows him to cover himself against both body and head strikes. Try and recall this as the DVD goes on as this is the only time you’ll see him in this stance.
