Ditto on Ross's DVD. Its great, and watching him workout on the DVD is cool. The manual is very good as well, he outlines alot of good routines and talks about a training schedule. Nothing i absolutely didn't know before, but for the price its a bargain, and i don't mind supporting Ross.

Little late for you now. But at a point in time about a year ago I wrote a METCON article specifically for this. if you would like I can copy and paste it here.

Thanks for posting the article!

I just got back from SBGi and was really excited that I didn't gas out all that much. I think it had to do with the lower elevation. One day I did three two-hour classes between SBGi and Sportslab and I was tired but still going. And one day I stayed out late drinking until 2 AM (I had a smack yer mama, a Long Island and a shot of Jameson) and was still able to get up early for the 8 AM and the noon classes (2 hrs each) the next day and function well.

It was really cool training with new people and people that didn't try to crush me. I was actually able to hold my own and my game improved a TON just by learning some basic fundamentals.

Seeing the vibe at these two gyms has made me realize I REALLY need to find somewhere new to go. We have limited options in Tucson but I may just switch to BJJ or judo rather than grappling... or at least find places to go to in addition to the gym I'm at now. I love that gym though.... I'm looking at some other places.

Yael,

I just now made the connection between i think meeting you in person at SBGi and your posting here on the PMenu. Did you show up a few days before camp and attend some classes? Unless there was another girl there from Tuscon then it was probably you. Glad you enjoyed Straight Blast.

I think I remember you--were you the guy I was talking to about headgear? SBGi was so awesome. Victor and Bill are amazing--really good coaches. Everyone was so nice and skilled and fun to work with. I was just disappointed that Matt didn't teach on Thursday...

I know most of the SBGi coaches don't have education backgrounds and yet I saw them practicing what we call scaffolding in the ed world--apply aids to support learning and then gradually remove them once the subject is mastered. There is a four-component model that includes modeling the desired academic behavior, creating a dialogue which includes an exchange of questions, ideas, explanations and feedback, practice and confirmation. It just seems so obvious and intuitive and yet I find myself going to gym after gym after gym in which all the tough guys are so super spastic and try to get a submission as soon as possible using muscle and no technique... I was talking about this with my friend James (who trained with Burton Richardson and is an amazing coach) and he sent me an article today called The Art of the Tap, check it out: http://www.grapplearts.com/2008/03/art-of-tap.htm

After going to Portland I decided to stop doing MMA at my gym and to only work with James and any other gym I find where people aren't assholes.
