    AndrewTheAndroid A hero for fun.

    We all know that most of them are crap especially as far as martial arts go. But which ones would you consider the diamonds in the rough and why?

    paul enfield's goju-ryu channel (GKCGoju, iirc) is an excellent karate resource, and i always liked the IMA stuff paul rogers puts in his (internalartstv)
  3. SWC Sifu Ben

    SWC Sifu Ben I am the law

    Scholagladiatoria by Matt Easton

    The man has a great amount of knowledge on swords, armour, and sword fighting (some more than others). He's skilled in sabre which is a favourite of mine, though I've never practiced European sabre. His discussions on historical contexts for weapons, techniques, tactics, etc. are all really great and for everything he tries to stick as much to primary sources as possible.

    Stephen Kesting

    Great grappler and I really enjoy watching his inventiveness and his little tweaks here and there. I like his practicality and that he's not a mouthpiece for a brand like some Gracies or 10th planet. Not that either of those are bad they just focus on repping the brand.

    Depends on what I'm looking for. There is one channel that is attached to our parent dojo in Okinawa, and some of our cousin schools in the states have channels too that I reference videos on.

    Now, for a channel everyone should enjoy that does karate, I like Iain Abernethy's channel for some alternative takes on bunkai: https://www.youtube.com/user/practicalkatabunkai

    The Warrior Collective. Simply the best channel there is really.

    Dead_pool Spes mea in nihil Deus MAP 2017 Moi Award


    TriStar gym, excellent BJJ, striking and MMA videos

    BJJ hacks, Rdojo and rolled up on budo videos, all good BJJ material.

    And of course the warrior collective, for excellent UK based instructors.

    Jason Scully and Kurt Ossiander deserve a mention for Gi and no Gi zoozitsu.

    I started training in his class this year - very good instructor in person too. I'm hoping he might even consent to come along and teach at next year's MAP Meet.

    I've seen some of the stuff nick drossos has been putting out- haven't watched much recently, and whilst it is very simplistic and often focusses more on common sense than specific moves i like his approach,really need to start watching more of that.

    A few Judo ones:

    Beyond Grappling Matt Daquino's channel. Matt is a former Olympian and has put out a load of great material, both free and paid.

    The Welcome Mat Steve Scott's channel. This school teaches Shingitai JJ, but they have some of the best technique instruction videos on the net. Steve Scott knows just about everything about everything from a Judo standpoint (he published a 400+ page book on Juji Gatame - just Juji - that's how much he knows about this stuff - btdubs, the book is awesome too).

    David CedeƱo's channel. Again, hundreds of videos of training sessions from the Tokhon in Chicago with loads of different instructors, some of them big names. This channel, in particular Maje Omagbaluwaje's 3 videos basically fixed my uchi mata and gave me a setup that has been incredibly effective.

    Hey Hannibal, I caught that. I made the mistake of not reading the whole thread! lol..sorry. I've actually been a member since 2004 :)

    Just don't visit much. As to not derail the thread I'll give my list of some YouTube Channels I like:

    Stephan Kesting: https://www.youtube.com/user/StephanKesting
    Great Grappling: https://www.youtube.com/user/GGBJJ
    BJJ Scout: https://www.youtube.com/user/BJJSCOUT and https://www.youtube.com/user/bjjscoutb

    LemonSloth Laugh and grow fat!

    For boxing shenanigans, I do enjoy watching JT van V's channel:


    As far as Karate goes, there's Iain Abernathy's channel and another one called One Minute Bunkai. It isn't the best, but it's always interesting to see other applications.

    Beyond that, I don't tend to follow many channels.
