  • DVD Review: Josh Barnett Attacking the Guard DVD and Catch Wrestling Vol. I Punishing Rides 2 DVDS that will change the way you Grapple

    This Article comes from Ruiz Combat Grappling – Blog
    To see the full original article click here


    Attacking the Guard
    I watched about 5 minutes of this video and thought to myself, “Do people understand what this guy is showing? Because if they did EVERYONE that participates in today’s MMA, Grappling and BJJ competitions would own this DVD!”

    That is how good I thought the concepts and techniques coming out of this DVD were, and that was just the first 5 minutes! 

    Josh delves into concepts of posture and breaking grips in addition to punishing and breaking guard players wide open. He isn’t nice about it either. Josh shows you techniques and approaches that are generally frowned upon in most BJJ dojos because of their meanness, aggression and effectiveness against even the most dominant guard players. 

    If that wasn’t enough I got just as much if not more out of the Catch Wrestling Vol. I Punishing Rides DVD also starring Josh Barnett. 

    Punishing Rides DVD
    Barnett shares great rides for Wrestling, Grappling and MMA. These are not just your typical Folkstyle wrestling rides either. These rides have teeth big enough to sink into any grappling situation. These are offensive rides and hold down positions not just lay-and-wait positions. 

    One of the most poignant speeches is about BJJ and the lack of rides and pressures. His words seem almost prophetic looking back on it now. He talked quite emphatically about the usefulness and possibilities of a certain Head and Arm ride. It is this same ride that he defeated Dean Lister with during their Metamoris 4 bout. Their match was the first time Lister has been submitted in 16 years.

    On top of showing some great technique and insights Josh gets more loose and entertaining as the DVD progresses. He is very funny. Just about everything in this DVD is unconventional from a BJJ standpoint and that is what is so great about it. This tuff works!

    As a competitor Josh Barnett has done and won everything there is to be won in the sport; UFC champion, Pancrase Champion, IBJJF No Gi World Champion and Metamoris Super Heavyweight World Champion. 

    You would think at some point the BJJ and Grappling community in general would begin to take notice and listen to what this guy has to say. However I am willing to bet that they won’t to their own detriment. Too often Brazilian Jiu Jitsu’s downfall is its own popularity and perceived value. 

    BJJ for whatever reason both proclaims to be “the new revelation” yet at the same time holds to “tradition” and shuns anything that is not BJJ. I can’t tell you how many times BJJ guys will sit and tell me how BJJ guys can beat wrestlers and go on and on. I think to myself that they must be complete BJJ tools if they still believe that BJJ is invincible. In grappling situations they certainly thrive but let’s be honest, it has been a long time since a BJJ purist has held any of the major MMA titles.

    If there is any one thing that real practitioners of the grappling arts should come to accept is that no one single art has the lock on effectiveness. Both of the Josh Barnett DVD’s show exactly why Catch-as-Catch-Can Wrestling is one of the best sources for powerful grappling techniques. I was extremely happy when Barnett submitted Lister using tried and true CACC techniques because it once again proved the effectiveness of one of the oldest and best forms of grappling around. I found so many gems in this DVD that it is currently at the top of my “must watch” list for grappling.

  • ホテルの商品券

    This Article comes from SLC MMA
    To see the full original article click here


    商品券やギフト券は贈り物としても自分で使うのも非常に便利ですね。
    その中でも、宿泊などに使うことができるホテルで使うことができる商品券は非常に便利ですね。
    ホテル券、というのはホテルでの施設利用全てにおいて使うことが出来るものなので、結構使うことのできる幅が広いのです。
    ホテル券、というと宿泊費に使うことができるのはもちろんそれ以外のホテル内の施設でも使うことができるのです。
    ホテル内のレストランや宴会、買い物、レジャー施設の利用などにも使うことができますので、宿泊の予定はないけど、ホテル内のプールや温泉などに入りたい、という人でもホテル券を使うことができるのですね。
    また、ホテルの商品券はものによっては使うことができるホテルも指定されていますので、あらかじめどの商品券が使うことができるのかということをチェックするといいでしょう。
    たとえば、ホテルチェックというホテルの商品券があるのですがこちらは帝国ホテルの東京と大阪や、上高地帝国ホテルなどの帝国ホテル関連の施設を利用することが出来るようになっているのですね。
    他にも、ザ・クレストホテル立川やザ・クレストホテル柏などの施設にも使うことが出来るのですね。
    帝国ホテルは宿泊施設としてもいいのですが、レストランも非常に充実しており、有名なものなのでこちらでちょっとぜいたくな食事を、というような楽しみ方をしたい人にも使えるものなのです。
    また、食事用にとホテルでのディナーギフ券というものもあってこちらでは帝国ホテル東京でのレストラン専用のギフト券になっていて、食前酒つきの1枚一人用のギフト券、というものもあるのですね。
    ホテルで使うことが出来る商品券というのは、宿泊よりも寧ろどちらかというと食事や施設、というようなところも充実していますので、ホテルの商品券をプレゼントしたい、という人は宿泊以外での面についても目を向けてみると選択肢が広まるのではないかと思います。

  • JTBの旅行券を贈り物に

    This Article comes from SLC MMA
    To see the full original article click here


    旅行券は、基本的に旅行代理店で旅行代金としてしか使うことが出来ないようになっているものなんです。
    JTBの旅行券は、非常に多くの店舗で使うことが出来るようなもので旅行代金を支払うための旅行券としては非常に幅広い使い方が出来るものなのです。
    JTBの各地方指定はもちろん、JTBのグループ、具体的にはJTBだけでなくPTSトラベルナビや、JTBの指定する旅行展でも使うことが出来るものなのです。
    JTBの旅行券は、何より実績のある会社のギフトカードなのに安心感があります。
    切符の購入はもちろんですが、宿泊の料金、国内旅行でのエースに海外旅行のルックJTBなどの商品にも使うことが出来るので、旅行のための使い方は非常に大きいのですね。
    しかも、旅行はもちろんですが帰り道も心配せずに任せておけますので、サポート体制もばっちりなんです。
    JTBの旅行券を使っておけば、旅行の行き帰りをしっかりとサポートしてくれますので、非常に安心して旅行を楽しむことが出来るのですね。
    普通に個人で旅行をするよりも、ずっと安心で何より自分でやらなくてはいけない手続きのようなものなんかも旅行代理店などがやってくれますので、色々と安心することができますね。
    また、その関係で例えばあまり旅行に慣れていないような人への旅行の贈り物、という代わりに旅行券のようなギフトカードを送る、という手段が使うことができるわけですね。
    しかも、JTBの旅行券であれば旅行券にタイトルなどを任意でプリントすることが出来るのですね。
    だから、旅行券を贈り物にする時なんかはここにお祝いのメッセージなどを入れることによって、より贈り物らしくすることが出来る、ということですね。
    父の日や母の日、両親の誕生日、還暦のお祝いなど目上の人へのお祝いとしても贈ることができますし、他にもお祝いのお返しなどにも利用することが出来ますし、メッセージは1枚からでも可能なので便利ですね。
