falsecrack - applicable no gi? or gi dependent?

Much like Ryan Hall's dvds it's applicable to both. There are some parts where he shows how if you're wearing a gi how you can use it to your benefit but Seph is a very strong no gi rdlr player and that technique is shown on this set.

I promised myself at the end of 2017 that I'd only buy another instructional in 2019. I've already broken that promise a bunch of times this month what with father's day and a birthday (I pretended that if my kid was a bit older and knew my PayPal password then this is what he'd be buying me) but they've all been sets that deal either with strengths, weaknesses, or both in my overall game. 

This set is a bit of a puzzler; AFAIK I've never played rdlr in my life but my whole game is half variations, dlr and a tiny bit of slx, so on the other hand maybe rdlr is a missing piece of the puzzle. 

Hmmmmmmmm.

What do you do when they force knee slide while playing DLR?

You go to RDLR. But Im liking RDLR more than DLR at this stage. Will look into it

Ha .yeah I know to go to RDLR. I was asking vidavaletudo. He says he plays DLR and Half, but has never been to RDLR.  It is almost mandatory IMO if playing DLR.

If they stuff my leg and try to knee slide I'll plant my dlr foot on the ground, kick them in the butt with my "stuffed" foot and either take slx or deep half from there.

I'm glad to know someone else is breaking their promises to buy less instructional stuff :)
