Good combination of basics and more advanced concepts. Good overview of all major single leg positions. Well done.

Short. To the point. Everything demonstrated well. Great material! The "beating the shin-whizzer" and "beating the seatbelt" sections was very helpful. I watched Will's matches on YouTube and a lot of what he does in competition he shows in this instructional--I appreciate that. Single-legs is an art and I find these are the most high percentage finishes. Thanks for putting this together.
