Well...if you are looking for the sucker in the room look no further. I paid for the second chapter. Am about 1/2 way through watching them.
The lessons appear to be longr than chapter 1. This is a good thing as it allows for more details to be presented and discussed. I have learned some new things.
There is nothing wrong with what he is showing. Its what he doesn't show and explain that makes this series so problematic to recommend. Rickson is talking to the viewer as if they already know these positions. So these can't be begineer videos. In addition safety points are left out that could cause injury when practicing a move. GU always points out where you could get hurt and how to prevent that from happening.
The whys of the different positions are skipped over.
Some videos cover philosphical aspects or fundamentals like base, strategy, timing, connection. Well I say "cover" but the clips are so short and what Rickson says is basically incomprehensible that they can't even be considered a "sound bite." Fundamentally the problem thoughout is not enough content. There need to be examples of these differnt concepts broken down, etc.
I did like the first chapter covering lesson called "facing life." Life can be challenging and remember to use base in solving the problems of life...like getting a new girlfriend. That cracked me up. How about a lesson in how not to lose the one you already have?
Say what you will but the videos the GU puts out covering some philosophical point are thorough with examples. And almost always relate to the subject of self-defense:)
