    One of the best if not the best no-gi series ever! However only problem is that I wouldnt really recommend it to beginners, theres alot of advanced stuff on them

    my roomate went up to train with him the other day and he came back with the DVDs and they were one of the most amazing Jui-Jitsu DVDs i have ever seen. The man redefines the art of Jui-Jitsu

    I was trying to decide between the Sauo Ribeiro series, and the Cesar Gracie no gi series (both 6 DVD sets). Can anybody comment on which set is better, or whether the Ceasar gracie no gi instructions are any good??? thanks

    I would definitely recommend the Shaolin inst vids. He makes it easy to understand and explains it very well. The Cesar ones are good also but Shaolin's is perhaps one of the best i've seen

    I have not seen the new no-gi DVD series (got the Gi series) but if Saulo R. did it then it must be good and detailed. He usually points out what most people do wrong and explains the right way to do it. He explains why something is wrong, and why this is a better way to do it.

    Does Shaolin offer any No Gi instruction on his DVD's??? If i'm not mistaken, the Shaolin DVD's are 100% Gi material.....if so, then it's not something a NO Gi person would want anyway....even if it's good.

    can anybody comment specifically on the Cesar Gracie NO GI DVD set???? Are there any revolutionary, or very unique techniques? Or is it just basic stuff?

    Shaolin's instructionals are broken into 3 DVD's. There's one for Gi, No-Gi and MMA. To be honest there are a few good techniques on the Shaolin DVD's but the detail of instruction on them is nothing compared to Saulo's.

    that kind of cracks me up when people make DVD sets like this. There is no way you can even come close to doing an adequate job on a 3 DVD set when there is only one DVD for Gi, No gi, and MMA..... Saulo did 6 DVD's on NO gi only, and still, that doesn't even come close to covering all he knows about no gi. Saulo could probably do a 50 DVD set on No Gi grappling only, just to cover all he knows about it. If Shaolin is trying to fit techniques into one dvd, then there must not be very much on it. That is unless the techniques are revolutionary and groundbreaking.

    Maybe shaoling meant his series as a tool for more experienced grapplers and such. But i hear what your saying. You just can't teach everything through a tape or book.
