    It is a DVD that comes with a one page, double sided reference card of all the drills and some suggested workouts. More information can be found here: www.grapplearts.com/Grappling-Drills-Info.htm

    Obviously I'm not an unbiased evaluator of my own product, but if anyone has any questions about this DVD they can post them here and I will do my best to answer them

    There are no takedown drills other than basic penetration stepping. I wanted to focus primarily on the grappling and groundfighting drills, rather than do a little bit of standing and a little bit of ground. Also takedown drills have already been well covered in the Judo and Wrestling world.

    I just went to the website and viewed the clip. I like it! Seems really good especially for white belts that want to get a good foundation.

    I will keep this DVD in mind.

    Thank you.

    There are both solo and partner drills on the DVD. Probably about 60% require a partner, but there is some material that you can work on when you don't have access to a willing body.

    Looks like a pretty kick ass product to me.
