Erik Paulson’s Neckbreaker – 2 DVD Set

In this deluxe 2-DVD set, Shooto champion and legendary MMA trainer Erik Paulson focuses upon one of the most devastating submissions known to man; Neck Cranks.

Erik displays a dizzying array of cranks, face locks, chokes, neck crank set-ups, and submissions that can be set-up by neck cranks (e.g., arm bars) from the ground and standing. He included variations for competition but for the street as well.

As Erik says, “these techniques aren’t nice” and are designed to make even the toughest opponents concede.

Bonus material includes in-depth stretching and a large portion of Erik’s personal “Ultimate Killer Neck Routine”. Also, see Erik neck crank his way through five live opponents back-to-back during an actual training session at CSW headquarters in Fullerton, California!

Stephan Kesting’s High Percentage Leg Locks

Master the leglocks that work!

High Percentage Leglocks Trapsheet

Leglocks are proven submission techniques at the highest levels of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, submission grappling and mixed martial arts competition. There are countless examples of smaller, weaker, and less experienced competitors using a leglock to turn the tables and tap out their opponent. Why then is it that many grapplers have a love-hate relationship with leglocks? Many grapplers simply haven’t been taught how to properly set up and apply leglocks. Others know how to attack with a leglock, but are lost once their opponent counters the initial attack. Some fear of botching a leglock and ending up in a bad position, getting crushed by their opponent. Other grapplers are worried about injuries because they’ve never been shown how to train leglocks safely. These are all valid concerns, but now there is a solution. Stephan Kesting has trained with some of the best leglock experts in grappling, and has spent years developing and refining a system that solves the riddle of leglocks. Now, for the first time, he is sharing his entire high percentage leglock system on DVD, making you an expert in the most powerful leglocks in grappling. On High Percentage Leglocks Stephan breaks each technique down into the HOW, WHERE, WHEN and WHY, and then builds it back up, putting it into a tactical and strategic context. Leglocks are often taught as a bunch of isolated techniques, without an overall strategy, but that is NOT the approach in High Percentage Leglocks. Stephan then shares the best leglock counters, and then shows you how to counter those counters so you can successfully submit an opponent who is doing everything he can to stop you. You will also learn how to safely train the most dangerous leglocks.
