    Bas Rutten's Big Book of Combat

    Should I get it? See, I'm a twice-a-week karateka with no consistant training partner and a bare minimum of sparring experience. Obviously, this is no good. I WOULD just join a MMA gym, but distance, cost, and time aren't exactly on my side (although come summer, that will all change). So with that in mind, would anyone here reccomend it? I made a shot Pros and Cons list to give you a better idea of my state of mind:

    Pros:[list][*]So far, I've heard nothing but positive reviews[*]Covers pretty much every aspect of unarmed combat[*]Written by a genuine expert[*]Freaking enormous[*]Includes lots of drills, which would be useful for someone who practice alone 90% of the time.[/list:u]

    Cons:[list][*]Ungodly expensive[*]Only available online; can't check it out at a bookstore[*]Would I be able to benefit from most of the material, seeing as how I do practice alone?[*]Really fucking expensive.[/list:u]

      I have shit loads of instructional VDO clips of: Eric Paulson Shoot Fighting, Mike Miles Muay Thai & some guy I don't remember his name BB BJJ techniques from www.FightTraining.com when they used to have these available for free downloads (too bad I heard it's closed now). Good clear instructional clips with fair quality pictures. If you have a Streamload account at - www.streamload.com (I think even a freeloader account will do since the files aren't that big at all), I can send these to you who are interested.

          I should also add that his charmingly inept website and infomercial-style marketing strategy damn near sweet-talked the pants off me.

            Hi Boyd,

            I actually ordered this and am awaiting shipping to Australia - 2-3 weeks.

            With exchange rate and shipping to Australia its costing me a fortune but I figured I'd take the chance.

            I ordered the special that includes both books and both CD's.

            I plan to post a thread reviewing the books and CD's after I've read through them (and listened to them). Probably about a month.

            If you want info quicker I can post a 'quick thoughts' thread stating eg. paper quality, picture quality, depth of descriptions, etc so you can get an idea.

            And hey, if you live in the USA you can at least skip the massive international shipping charge :)

                  A million billion dollars. Or if you're Scrooge McDuck, 180 plus 30 dollars shipping, but that includes both the 6lb. books and some CDs.

                            Here's what I would do:

                            Go to http://www.goldstar-video.com and rent Bas' tapes. You could even copy them if you want. If you like 'em and still feel you need more, buy the books.

                            I own copies of the first two tapes in his Extreme Pancrase series and think they're just great!
