I recently received a copy of Tim Sleds new video “ Leg Drag Workshop.” I want to say that I don’t set out to intentionally make my blog a dvd review site but when important DVD’s come along I feel I need to pass on info about a quality set so that others can have the opportunity to take advantage of ground breaking material. I get many videos from numerous people all the time and much of the time I don’t feel the need to give a breakdown because it’s typically run of the mill material.
Tim’s new video, however is an amazing compilation on the subject of leg drags and passing. Many of you know me as a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu practioner with a focus on the self-defense aspect of Jiu-Jitsu.
At first glance many people who think of the Leg Drag as a position will think it simply another aspect of tournament Jiu-Jitsu. I disagree. I think it has applications for traditionalist as well as tournament players. This video has applications for all Jiu-Jitsu players and besides the leg drag is getting to be more popular and every student must learn to deal with it lest they have it done on them at a tournament or when a visiting student starts to put this move on them.
Tim Sledd is a black belt under the great Andre Galvao and he learned these moves directly from him. Tim spends time breaking down the leg drag position from numerous traditional positions that give students another avenue to help pass the guard. We all know that guard passing can be difficult at best and at worst impossible from a good guard player. Tim’s video is easy to understand and follow and I have been using the material I have learned during rolling sessions with students at my school with great success.
I would highly urge you to buy a copy of Tim’s video because it’s an important position and because there isn’t a lot of material out there on this position. If you decide that you don’t want to, it’s ok. I would rather keep this info to myself.
You can get Tim's Video at Budo Videos. Check it out!
