    Any of the Mario Sperry DVDs. A lot of technique and he's one of the few I've seen who shows submission grappling techniques without a gi. (Eddie Bravo does also.)

    Maia's, Drysdale's, Garcia's, Saulo's. I can't think of any others, I would be happy with just these 4.

    I'm surprised no one added carlos machados dvds

    They imo are one of the best instructionals on the market at the moment.

    Drysdales is a must for the leglocks alone...

    There are too many to name. Marcelo (the first DVD), Mia, Saulo, Cesar Gracie, Erik Pualson.

    I just wish that I watched Damien Mias's instructional when I first started bjj, it would have save me some time to understand some simple concepts I didn't get until later.

    I hate to do this but I didn't like this instructional at all. I like his half guard series much better.

    Kestings sets are very good, but they have been getting better over time. His earlier sets are a bit rudimentary. His last set on halfguard was a classic, beautifully done. And he's been working on a leglocks dvd that will doubtless set the bar in that area.

    No area of BJJ has less instructional guidance available than leglocks, so I think it's a terrific subject for him.

    Or, like I said, Drysdale has a VERY innovative one, Zankou...

    I've really enjoyed Eddie Bravo's Mastering the Rubber Guard. Can't wait for the Mastering the Twister set!
