What Others Have Said
Excellent Foundational Course for the DNT (plus SNT)
By: Tim Jones
If you previously wanted to get a hold of Rodney's approach to this highly effective form of clinch, outside of attending one of his seminars around the world, you would have had to hunt down 2-3 out of print DVD's from the early 2000's. It is awesome, therefore, that we can now get our hands on a complete foundational resource for the Double Neck Tie (plus a bit of Single too). As is typical of Rodney's instruction, he seeks not to deliver 1000 variations on the topic, but a highly detailed foundational core that is reliable and applicable to everyone. Even if you have practiced a lot of DNT before, you will find useful, actionable details to make your game better, and if you have never trained the DNT before, you will come away with a complete system that you can begin training immediately.
Really Solid Information!
I've been on a personal quest to improve my clinch game for a while now. I’ve found that when sparring, the neck ties are a very common position as soon as you close into clinch range. Therefore, I went looking for material to improve my understanding of neck ties and I was very happy when I found this. It seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. The Good: I found the material very well organized and very well presented. The emphasis on simple high percentage moves was great and was exactly what I was looking for. I wasn’t looking for a hundred and one ways to strip a single neck tie. I was looking for one or two ways that work with a high chance of success and that was exactly what I got. Other than the information I came looking for I also found a lot of useful stuff on the things I thought I already knew, like elbowing and kneeing. There where a surprising amount of great details I picked up on both of those subjects as well as details on how to train them. The benefits of attached vs unattached knees when doing pad work for instance. The room for improvement: The bulk of my training is done in Krav Maga. As anyone who has ever taken a krav class knows, it about 90% groin strikes 😊 Whenever I get into clinch range with one my krav training partners the first thing that usually happens is a fight to take inside foot position to deliver knees to the groin. This wasn’t covered in the videos and I would very much like to see it in any upcoming expansions to the course, since I’m sure there are a lot of good ways to shut that down and unbalance/sweep the opponent that tries it. Furthermore I would love to see options for getting into overhooks/underhooks from the neck tie position to use some of the takedown options I have from those positions. The bad: I bought the course just a day or so after release and there was a slight mix up where one of the videos was missing. This was quickly fixed however. Conclusion: I was very satisfied with this course, I got almost everything I was hoping for and a lot of details on things I thought I already knew. I have high hopes that this course will continue to evolve and grow and I highly recommend it if you are looking to improve your clinch game.
