Comprehensive no gi 'syllabus'
I'm training with some MMA fighters, but want to get good at sub wrestling / no-gi. So I have rolling partners, but not a structured class
Can anyone recommend a good home resource to act as a curriculum for self study, so that I can make sure I have a rounded game? Something I can use to find holes in my game that wouldn't be obvious in the MMA environment.
Does anyone have an opinion on Mark Hatmakers stuff?
I'd say save your $$ and use lockflow, when you master all the lockflow moves then move onto a book. :D
I've been on this site for almost a year and haven't seen them all
Use lockflow and youtube
seeing moves and practicing them is the only way. Whether you learn from a website, a book, an instructional DVD or youtube... you'll learn the moves.
Transitioning to them is also something that needs practice.
I say pick up a book or a video. If best, join a class.
If you want a comprehensive syllabus, you should find a book or video that covers basic movements and techniques. The basics win fights, so I'd say check out some of the Gracie books to get an idea of what they fundamentals are.
On top of that, I'd say look for a book designed like Eddie Bravo's Mastering the Rubberguard and Mastering the Twister. These two books provide a gameplan, every technique connects to another and creates an overall system. You can create a gameplan of your own (and I must admit that currently my bottom game is very much plaragized while my top game is a hodge podge of things that I've been putting together), but it might be a good idea to see how a grappler like Bravo handles it.
grappling drills dvd by steven kesting is good especially if you dont have a partner...
Yeah i often do it by myself...when i do have a partner it seems to last longer...especially postions changes... :oops: sorry i just couldn`t resist...
