    I'm sure most of you are already familiar with Indrek Reiland's free half guard instructional from Google videos. I saved the file as an MP4, converted it to AVI, then split it into smaller sections as WMVs to make it easier to browse through the sections.

    So far, I've got the first half converted to WMVs. This covers basic positioning and the bottom game (defenses, sweeps, etc). I'm hoping to get the 2nd part converted and split up tomorrow. It covers passing half guard and countering many of the techs taught in the first section.

    Here's the RapidShare link to download the first batch. It's a zip file containing 6 WMV files. It's 58 MB in size with the individual videos being between 5MB - 13MB each.

    Here's the material covered in each video:

    FHG01

    Basic Positioning
    Stay on your side
    Paw and under-hook
    Cross-face and flatten (top guy)

    Smaller file size. An AVI that was 30+ MB compressed down to 6MB as a WMV.

    If you want it in a different format, just let me know. I can convert it and upload it as well. Or if you want the original AVI's, I can upload them as well.
