    I don't play a lot of gi so I haven't looked for dvds in that genre. However, no gi my top three are ryan hall triangle, reilly bodycombs two disc seminar and imanaris leg lock dvd. Imanaris dvd is worth it just for the fight footage. He just maims people its amazing

    Personally, I thought 10th Planet Allstars was just "ok". I thought that each move was kind of rushed until Sean Bollinger, Sean seemed nervious but he seemed to give the best instruction in my opinion, that is coming from me & I don't train though.

    I'm more looking forward to Mastering the Twister DVD by Eddie Bravo if it ever comes out & Advanced Rubber Guard Book & DVD. Eddie said on his website that he was just about to start writing his Advanced Rubber Guard book.

    Do you train, if so, where do you train at?

    For no-gi:
    Saulo Ribeirio
    Marcelo Garcia (I liked the first series the best)


    DVD series to avoid:
    Sonnen's "Advanced Triangle Escapes"
    Trigg's "Rear Naked Choke Defense Essentials"

    Let's not forget Rich Franklins how to defeat the clinch set and the all new James Toney weight loss and advanced takedown defense set.

    Demian Maia's dvds are awesome. they really breakdown everything to the lowest level any of the moves he shows are easy to assimilate into your game.

    I really enjoyed Glover's Deep Half dvd for gi. I would place it in the top three for me, as it has a lot of ideas on how to counter the half guard (both deep and regular), as well as how to play deep half. Also has some submissions with lots of angles.

    I also enjoy Gustavo Machado's Great Escapes and Counters. Lots of simple counters to common submissions, it has really improved my escapes from submissions.
