"This DVD is a helpful illustration of what really works. The grapplers in it are top notch and the matches are real. You don't have to sit through long minutes of watching someone trapped in the guard while they sit there playing it safe, instead you see only the actions leading to a tap out. Some other nice things: you see it twice in a row, so 1st time you see what happens and go "wow", 2nd time you can really watch for the critical error. And the DVD is divided into gi and no gi sections. Because it's just the tap out part, I was able to watch it with non-grappling friends and they were not bored as happens sometimes when I watch pride fights with them. I recommend this DVD to any grappler who wants to sharpen their skills."
Great tape but...

"I thought this was an excellent tape as far as submissions go, I like the replays and the quality video editing--it makes the tapes watchable and exciting because I do not always want to watch guys in the guard for 5 minutes at a time(that is what Pride is for). I also like seeeing gi and no gi, makes for a good mix. The reason I gave it three stars was the sound track...it is very low rent, mostly ghetto raps with profanity being the used in every song, which means I cannot watch it with my kids or I have to mute it. IMHO, a soundtrack more akin to what you may find on CrossFit would better suit a BJJ video like this one."
