The need to buy additional tapes to understand this one: None
the third and final tape of the BJJ 101 series by Instructor Roy Harris. This was
my personal favorite of the three tapes. Like all of Mr. Harris’s tapes he has a
very organized and systematic approach to teaching. This video shows ankle locks,
knee locks, knee wrenches, hip locks, heel hooks and a figure four foot lock. Some
of these you have seen on other video’s however others have not been shown before.
It is again the detail to the techniques that make this such a great tape. This
would rank up there as one of my favorite leg lock tapes. As with all of the tapes
in this series the production quality was of the highest caliber.
some of what you will find on this tape. Combinations of leg locks such as a heel
hook to a hip wrench and a knee wrench to a hip wrench. An explanation is given
on how to control someone from the various leg lock positions. Entries into leg
locks are shown from inside the guard (2), bottom side of the guard (2), cross side
ontop (2) and from the bottom of the mount (2). There is also a section on how to
defend against footlocks, kneelocks, heel hooks. All the defenses shown are very
practical and workable. There is one defense given to each of the mentioned locks.
In future tapes I personally would like to see Mr. Harris offer us some more defenses
to the various foot locks. The final section is dedicated to methods of developing
pain tolerance in relation to leg locks. This was a very interesting section and
to my knowledge has not been shown before. The tape finishes off ends with some
more fight footage. This video is one that you can watch over and over again and
probably pick up something new each time you watch it. (For more information of the
series as a whole see review of tape 1).
Overall, excellent job Mr. Harris!
Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to the release of future video’s!
