    I was going to get it, but then someone had to post up a thread about a Robson Moura Camp in Daytona, and now I'm counting my pennies :icon_chee

    Kinda sucked. I liked maybe one or two little details but there was nothing that made me reassess my worldview. Unimpressed and underwhelmed because I know Nino is the almighty god of the crucifix but he doesn't share his insight.

    I saw them too, and yeah they sucked.

    Shame because the subject sounds incredibly drool-worthy.

    You can't just put an instructional out with a random selection of moves anymore. You need to provide real insight into how it all fits together, along with all the crucial details.

    yea montanha said something in the lines of "nino isn't the best communicator in the world". .. It's a shame this instructional dissapointed me so much....

    I own the Nino Schembri DVDs and I have watched them over and over again. It is really insightfull and I have used his crucifix techniques already with great results.

    Get the crucifix DVD on Marcelo 4 if you really want to learn the position.

    I also have Marcelo Garcia 4 series and I feel that both Marcelo's and Schembri's crucifix approach are quite informative and different.
