I appreciate you asking. . .I am working on B footage as we speak. Give me another two weeks and I should have a release date. I could have put them on the market a Year ago, but we want creativity, and quality, not product, and speed. . .I hope it will be worth the wait. But most off all, better then the previous sets. www.straightblastgym.com

It is probably taking a long time to edit all of my mistakes out of the footage... "Damn, we can't use that footage... there is Sweeney screwing up again..." :)

Nah. . .it's not Sweeney's fault. He IS to blame for enough stuff, we don't need to pile on more : ) Truthfuly the studio footage was easy, and done along time ago as many of you know. But what I think made the previous series's was the B footage, from fights, seminars, other SBGi's, etc. So this one is full of much of that as well, but it required sorting through hundreds of hours of stuff. Condensing it down, and making copies for my editor. All of which is very time consuming. I think we have just about finished that process though, and we will release a date soon. As I said before, it would be really easy for me to crank out a dvd every few Months, no problem. But for me that is not what this is about. I really want to create something entertaining, and new with this series. And that is not a process that should be rushed by me. It's Art vs product, and we never want to be Wal Mart. www.straightblastgym.com

Matt since you have finished the studio footage can you tell us what makes this series better than the old ones and presumably better than other DVDs out there?

The new "virtually guaranteed" release date that I have heard is Fall Camp (Canada) in October. There may be a "special" surprise there for camp attendees.

I have viewed pre-release copies. Matt has been locked in his house all week proofing them, and making any last-minute adjustments. They will be on the street...

Series #3 is now done! We will be fininshing the masters and shipping at the end of December. PRE ORDER CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! (Available only until December 26th! A gift certificate will be mailed imeadiatly, suitable for a stocking stuffer or card. The first sets will be mailed in the first half of January. Prices will return to normal after December 26th) . . . . . . . . . Matt's first series has become one of the top sellers of all time within Martial Arts videos. An instant classic, they set off a fire storm of controversy, and remained a central catalyst in a Martial Arts training revolution that is still taking place all over the world! They were voted as one of the top five self defense videos of all time by Black Belt magazine. Martial Arts video reviews said "If you buy only one set of videos this year, let these be the ones. If you believe that there has been an evolutionary development in the martial arts over the last few decades, from Bruce Lee to the Gracies to the all-round fighters of then you will want to see these tapes. If you have to sell your body to medical science or your sister to an Arab oil sheik, buy these tapes!" Voted as one of the top five videos of all time! Matt's second series, like the first series contained interviews, fight footage, and guest Instructors, and became one of the best reviewed MMA instructional sets . Series two still remains a top seller and has sold all over the world in over 50 Countries. It's been more then Five Years since series #2 hit the market, and now the final in this trilogy of Functional Martial Arts Instructional sets is here! Series Three promises to be as enjoyable and entertaining to watch as the first two were, and just as revolutionary! The set: Disc #1 - The A.P.E Guard this one hour and 40 minute DVD covers all the fundamental and advanced movements, concepts and drills that will help you develop a guard which remains offensive. APE Stands for active pressure and energy, and the set includes guard retention, sweeps, submissions, closed and open guard attacks, and the differences between gi and no gi. Disc #2 – The Iron Coffin Top Game this one hour and 20 minute dvd covers all the skills and drills needed in order to develop that heavy, crushing, air tight top game that BJJ is known for. This dvd includes the fundamental 5 skills on top, the different pressures and energies, submissions, transitions, & attacks and drills from both cross sides and mount position. Disc #3 – Escapes from bottom for MMA & BJJ this one hour and 40 minute DVD covers the fundamental 5 principles of escaping from bottom, as well as an entire series designed for escapes when strikes are included. Whether you train for gi BJJ, no-gi, or MMA this set will help you get out. Disc #4 – Half Guard & Back Attacks This one hour and 20 minute DVD covers the basic half guard bottom escape game used by the SBGi athletes, the "stone squirrel". It also includes a host of different half guard bottom sweeps, reversals, and attacks. It then proceeds into the fundamentals of holding and passing half guard top, using the smashing top game. Following this a full segment on using the harness for back attacks is covered. Including all the fundamental SBGi back attack drills! Disc #5 – MMA Guard! Here it is, this one hour dvd covers all the fundamental elements of the MMA guard game that all the SBGi athletes have been putting into successful application for the last Six Years. How to defend against the ground and pound, sweep and submit your opponent. Disc #6 – De La Riva & X Guard this hour and ten minute dvd covers a host of attacks for when your opponent stands inside your guard. These include the X guard offense as used by Luis Gutierrez, the DLR guard for gi, no-gi and MMA, and many other attacks, submissions, and turnovers! Disc #7 – Advanced Clinch this hour and fourty minute dvd is jam packed with all the basics you need in order to develop a world class clinch game. The dvd includes all the clinch fundamentals taught within SBGi through the "clinch surfing" drill. The fine points of double neck ties, striking in the clinch, using the wall or fence, working underhooks, control, takedowns and throws! Disc #8 – Keep it standing! This hour plus dvd covers the revolutionary curriculum developed by SBGi Coach Karl Tanswell & the SBG-UK Coaches. The SBG_UK athletes have been using this material for the last several Years to help dominate in the Cage, and now for the first time it's available to the public. The entire curriculum is designed solely to allow you to stay on your feet within the MMA Cage, and/or a self defense situation, and is all included on this DVD. Disc #9 – Aliveness the sequel! This two hour and fifteen minute dvd is stuffed with interviews, conversations, demonstrations, and drilling footage, which deals with the number one overriding philosophical principle SBGi was founded on. . .Aliveness. Warning regarding the Aliveness DVD: this is NOT an instructional dvd. This dvd is not designed to teach any movements, skills, or drills. It is instead an interview and philosophy dvd that is meant for those interested in gaining a more in depth understanding of what Aliveness is all about. For this reason we have created separate set prices and we realize some people are only interested in the instructional portion of our set.
