    Are there any good instructionals for submission defense other than "1001 Submissions?"

    Most of the escapes in Machado's DVD are no gi-applicable, or easily modifiable. You're doing yourself a disservice if you ignore gi instructionals anyway - most I've seen have very little material that is only applicable in the gi.

    + 1 to this ^ I've done a lot more no gi than gi, and I find against the blues I survive pretty well in no gi (eg I may get tapped once or even not at all in a roll), but in Gi I get tapped all over the shop with collar / lapel based chokes. I just don't see / feel them coming, and even wheN i do I can't seem to do much about them. Someone who is good at gi choking is a dangerous thing.

    The Gustavo Machado dvd is great. Shows practical defenses for all the major submissions.
