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.

voxman: In what way is it not working? What are you trying to do? Note that you need to first select from the pull down menu, and then select the DVDs that you want with the checkboxes.

The pull-down menu won't allow me to choose the entire dvd set. When I click on it, it's just a blank column.

I just logged in using Firefox and placed my order. It did not give me a total, however. Just read that I owe for shipping. I'll just have to wait and see if everything went through ok. They must be getting SLAMMED with orders as even the voicemail for the order dept was full 5 minutes after the release announcement.

That did it, but I already placed my order. However, my total was only showing as 7.95 for USPS Priority shipping and it listed FJKD 3 as being $0.00. Hopefully SBGi can fix that on their end so my order goes through smoothly.

hmmm... that's not good:) I am sure they can change that to the correct amount when it is processed. Hopefully the change I made fixes that part too. Thanks very much for your help!

I am pretty sure Matt said there would not be a FJKD4, but who knows.

Guys, just returned from NY and was overwhelmed by the response and number of orders so far. We have done zero advertisments minus the forum and our newlsetter, and Tonie is flooded with orders. So please be patient. She will get back with everyone and we are sending the cards out now. Much appreciated.
