I viewed a clip on Mr. Paulson's site of Daniel Sullivan's new series called dirty boxing. It got me thinking about adding foot sweeps with my boxing. I know the Filipino systems of Panatukun and Panajakman (sp) employ these sweeps along with the striking.

Could you possibly do a segment on boxing and foot sweeping combined?

I'm sorry to have to decline but I must.  Not because I don't want to.  But rather because, I know enough to know what I don't know and combining Boxing with foot sweeps is simply not something I am at all familiar with.  It's definately a niche that others are much more versed in than myself.  And to be honest (I haven't seen Khru Sullivan's clip yet), I don't know how the two could be combined as they would seem to occur at two distinctly different ranges.


Foot sweeps as part of our MMA and Muay Thai Clinch are something I am familiar with and use quite often.  I also use the kick sweeps whenever possible.  I would be much more comfortable putting together a series on that some day.


At the moment, we are about to finish up the Off Beat Timing Series but then we need to take some time to do some house keeping and put up a few series we need to fill up some holes we have in our existing foundational material.  We also have a few series on the books we'd like to share but haven't had a chance to due to the volume of member requests.


These include in no particular order:


Far Side Takedown Trifecta

Arm Trapping on the Ground

The Half Halch Submission Staging Site Series

The Stand Up Angle Game For Striking and Takedowns

The Triangle Choke Series Revisitied

The Brachial Plexus Cutter Series

The Posture Breaking Series (Guard)

The Grappling Ladder Theory

Leg Locking Theory and Lockflow Tool Set Series

Thanks, I will look into it further. I am excited about your list of upcoming topics specifically the stand up angle game for strikers, posture breaking from guard and the lockflow tool set series.
