They both seem like great teachers since anyone coming out of AOJ are savages, and I know Rafa has a fantastic teaching style. Are there any talks of them doing a DVD? Or are they just sticking with the online stuff? Phone Post 3.0

You can find their old bull terrier DVDs on Budovideos. There's some good stuff on those. You may know about them. They came out in 2009 or 2010 I think? Each DVD has a gi and nogi portion.

But I don't imagine they'd be doing any new DVDs anytime soon. I think the online training is what they're focusing on. They usually upload 6 videos a week. 1-2 sparring/rolling vids a week. Mix of gi and nogi. Slightly more gi. Rafa teaches more on the website, although with him prepping for ADCC it's been mostly Gui the past couple of months.

It's a great resource. But sometimes it's slow to load. Some others might have some good feedback on the site as well.

MBOnline is great like Drew said, it's way more Gi than No Gi but it still would be worth it if you're No Gi only

Rafa is one of the best teachers for online stuff IMO, the site works better than it did but it still isn't what it could be with the features, but the content is great

I canceled my membership with the site. I just got so frustrated in finding the previous techniques. For example, if there was a video showing the DLR to Omo Plata to Reversal to Leg Drag, or something (I just made that up:) then the videos showing how to properly do the Omo, the DLR, the Leg Drag, The Reversal, etc all should be easy to find as references that build up to the combo. Instead, I am learning stuff in combos that I do not really know the basic mechanics for. So, I am going to look into other sites, perhaps MG In action. I've heard Draculino's site is really good too.

MBonline lacks sufficient content, and I feel like they try not to show the same techniques more than once.

They should also add some sort of technique linkage. Example: All reverse dlr techniques should have links to related RDLR techniques, going all the way back to their first RDLR video on how to set up the position.

It implicitly assumes a certain level of knowledge. I can use it just fine because I was using those techniques before the site went up, but a friend of mine who has trained longer than me is new to that style and has a hard time implementing the stuff.
