Love this DVD! Just like Dan's Black Magic closed guard DVD, this one has Dan's flavor of Jiu-Jitsu thrown into the half guard. I love the small details and the different approach he has to the half guard. Dan really thinks outside the box when he approaches Jiu-Jitsu!

I disagree with the previous review. These techniques are definitely NOT for beginners. They require proper breakdown of the opponent (which is difficult to do and not really discussed in depth in this DVD), and they require inversion which is not for everyone. The inverted armbar is also not easy to pull off especially against bigger and/or stronger opponents. These techniques are unique and not used widely, so it may be an interesting move to add to your arsenal to surprise someone who is not expecting it (especially if you like attacking from the closed guard). But I would NOT recommend this for beginners or those looking for more fundamental attacks.

Good Details and thorough explanations. "Black Magic" is a bit of a stretch though. Nothing groundbreaking here, mostly fundamental techniques with slight variations. Recommended for beginners.
