Written Summary:

The is 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.

Here is 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!
