Hi folks, I've been an ignorant bastard and haven't yet looked into the work Scott Sonnon does. I would now like to do so and learn more. Where's a good place to start? Thank you, Frost

Frost, First you have to decide on what area you are intersted in working. For example, for general health, there's Zdorovye, Warrior Wellness, and Be Breathed. For Boxing I would suggest Fisticuffs. For Jacketed Wrestling (really any wrestling) there is IOUF. Et cetera. . . Where do you want to go? What do you want to develop? These are just a couple of the questions you need to ask. . . Peace, Chuck

It took me awhile also Sam. I bout GT1 , watched it, and said "ho hum". THen one day, after a pretty active period of training and hitting a wall in my development, I watched GT1 again and a light went on in my head. I thought "So THATS what I need to be doing in that situation". From there, I realized just what is being shown in the GT series- the "intermediate moves" I call them, how to get from one position to another efficiently, how the great grapplers can transition as well as they do, how to add what, to me , was the missing element in my ground game. Since then Ive bought all the GT tapes, Be Breathed, Warrior Wellness and the running tape. I will get Maximology in a few months when i have the cash to afford it. Not to overstate things, but Scotts stuff has really changed the way I view the arts. Also, to a guy like me with 20 years of martial arts experience in various disciplines, his ideas seem to be a re application of some very old principles that ive seem in some of the internal arts, but modified and put into a different context, without a lot of the "esoteric" dogma that Ive seen in many of the internal practitioners.

Frost, read Scott's columns on RenegadeTraining.com and the Circular Strength Mag. There are some good detailed reviews of Scott's tapes sprinkled over the RMax.tv site as well. Not everyone seems to get it, but if you absorb it this material WILL revolutionise the way you approach and regard MA training.

rmax.tv, I remember that one now, hell I think I even have it bookmarked. I had forgotten about it in the midst of reading so many other things. Considering I'm just getting started in this stuff, I think if I viewed these tapes theyw ould have a double meaning to me, one would be a look at what I WILL be learning (because at this stage I'm not even started grappling at all yet), and 2nd, once I've got some skill, I'd look at the tapes again and probably see things I missed and that I can now see with a new POV. I'll start looking at the website for info on his tapes. The only challenege will be to get money for them.

Frost, begin with my new book Body-Flow. It conveys the crux and cornerstone of ALL of my work (40+ videos and books), and it is the single best book written on the subject. It will also not create havoc on your wallet.

That sounds good Scott, and Dhira's stamp of approval only serves to make the steak seem more juicy so I shall get ahold of Body-Flow as soon as I can.
