    I love instructionals with competition footage showing the technique actually used in a live match. Even better if there's commentary.

    Unfortunately almost nobody does that! :icon_sad:

    An example of what I mean is the following short (3 minutes) video:



    (if you want to discuss the specific video please post in the relevant thread: http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f12/your-guard-passing-philosophy-1337989/)

    I've found the following, in order of relevance:
    - Royler Gracie competition tested techniques series, all techniques are also done in competition and narrated;
    - Ronaldo Jacare Souza 2 DVD sets, has a lot of his moves illustrated with competition footage;
    - Kenny Florian's BJJ and No Gi seminars have sparring/competition footage, better than nothing;
    - Kesting, some of his sets show a little sparring. Not really what I'm looking for though;
    - Mudials, the latest worlds have commentary about the finals. Not really what I'm looking for though.


    Do you know any other BJJ (gi or no gi) instructional that shows moves also with competition footage, maybe commented?

    Cobrinha's set has some comp footage in with the techs.

    Andreh Anderson's closed guard sweeps does, too.

    It absolutely does, has some free rolling too with commentary. Was just watching it the other day before a no-gi class.

    All Fighting Films™ dvds are put together so professionally and are so easy to follow that I am surprised that no one from the BJJ realm has stolen their format yet!

    yes, with the incredibly funny video layouts.

    it looks like ryan is showing you the triangle in a log cabin infront of a fireplace.

    I enjoyed watching the slow rolling with the commentary. It helped to piece together the flow and transitions. As a side topic...an other useful vids that explain everything during a roll?

    I know that it is not BJJ, but Komuro "Komlock" Koji also uses the format of teaching the technique, and then showing actual competition footage of him using that technique:

    Nice suggestion there.

    @unhommefou: exactly what DVD by Komuro? I'm interested in his approach.

    I agree that Fighting Film is awesome, and in my opinion Royler Competition Techniques and Ronaldo Jacare instructionals are the closest thing we have right now.

    I also would like to specify that even if sparring footage is nice, a black belt can make it work whatever technique against his students. The point of high level footage is to show how the move is used and eventually adapted against the best in the sport. I find that really exciting.

    The above though is just an ideal, I really appreciate all your comments, keep them coming.
