    Starting at 2:25 of video.

    I've been using these chin attacks against half-guard recently and am enjoying them. I might actually try these patented Wolfman techniques. (But not the ones at the beginning where he's explaining that he didn't know she was married, even though I also like the look of those.)

    I've always been told a lot of stuff involving the face is illegal.

    Not sure about legal, but it doesn't seem very nice. I wouldn't like using that on my teammates.

    Almost none are legal for 2 reasons.

    1 - They are spine/cervical much like a can opener. One is actually a standing can opener.

    2 - Some involve strikes. Obviously you cant do that in BJJ.

    These moves are illegal in wrestling as well, but I believe he is right, all of those are 100% legal in MMA minus the spine strikes.

    The point is that it's often used to disguise that a move has an very low success rate against a resisting opponent.

    The guy claims to teach "the next level of MMA", when his record is 1-3.
