Rigan Machado Chokes and Leglocks DVDs

I am a big fan of Rigan Machado.  I’ve decided to gather a collection of his DVDs that I can find.  It seems there aren’t that many or that they aren’t sold any more.  I just got his "Master Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – Chokes and Leglocks" DVDs.  I was really excited and sat down to watch them.  I was hoping to see some of the leglocks in greater detail from his book Encyclopedia of Leg Locks (Encyclopedia of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu).  I was disappointed in more then one way.  They didn’t show the leglocks I wanted to see and second the video was armature.  I think Rigan did a excellent job of explaining and demonstrating but it just wasn’t up to what I was used to with Saulo Ribeiro Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Revolution Series One. Six Volume DVD Instructional Series for Grappling and Mixed Martial Arts.  The Chokes DVD was ok too but once again it didn’t have the professional touch to it.  I’ll keep them because as I’ve learned the more I grow in Jiu-Jitsu the more I see in a technique.  Maybe this is so advanced I don’t really see the true worth of it.  Rigan did a good deal in heal hooks with I don’t have any experience in.  I don’t know.  For now I can’t recommend them.
