I still get emails everyday asking me questions, literally begging me to help them out. I started feeling a little bad about it, really. So I started San Da Training Systems and began creating educational materials like my DVDs and my books.
I got the first DVD, and loved it. Got a lot out of it that I didn’t know.
In my opinion this is the perfect cross training for a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu guy. It is integrated kickboxing and wrestling and the DVD shows an integration of strikes from the beginning both in closing the distance and in the clinch. Everything in here is high percentage and solid. You can buy DVDs from Randy or Tito or Vitor. However, the problem is they aren’t integrated. They are either pure wrestling or clinching or boxing. They don’t cover the actual transitions as a science. This DVD does.
Just have to say a big “well done” to Coach Ross for producing such an excellent range of coaching products. It’s very rare that an instructional DVD provides everything I was hoping for with it, but these certainly have. It’s really great to see quality bread and butter drills, and techniques to be discussed in context and with various outcomes. Perhaps the real genius of the thing though is that although there were many things that weren’t completely new to me, they were without exception better explained and mechanically somewhat better. The sheer quantity of material covered (no 40 minute running time here folks) makes them exceptionally good value, and I make no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending them to anyone who spars competitively or who teaches students to.
In a word: excellent. I very much encourage any one wanting to improve their clinch/takedowns to get a copy of this DVD. David Ross explains the material systematically and logically starting with the absolute basics but going on to look at various different scenarios: Positions, attacks, counters, counters to the counters and even some basic submissions/controls on the ground. Its well produced and shot and there’s lots of information – with all the various permutations/what if scenarios covered
Coach Ross presented a lot of great info. This might have been the best spent $40 in my entire Martial Art training.
I gotta say, I really like the way you use CMA examples when you are talking about different techniques, like when you reference the Hsing-I shoulder drills comparing them to wrestling clinch countering drills, the use of fajing and short power to open up the clinch, etc… Good stuff.
Great stuff! Really good production, too–I especially liked how you reversed nearly everything so it could be seen from both sides on video. The concepts are good stuff.
I was really impressed. He is really a good teacher. I’ve been involved in wrestling/Boxing/Kickboxing on and on for more than 25 years and I must say he knows his stuff. I was most impressed by his “credo” of training for all things, as far as, kickboxing, boxing, clinching and grappling. This is almost like a MMA stand up instructional focused on the clinch range, but includes striking defense and an awareness of grappling. I did learn a couple new drills, that’s saying a lot since I have a library of clinch resources.
