Just watched this DVD and it is really cool. I got interested in Cobrinha after hearing about how he beat Feitosa pretty solidly at this year's mundials. To put this into perspective, I roll with Feitosa a lot and he tears through big brown and black belts that come through and he DROPPED down to Pena to face Cobrinha in the finals. Cobrinha was able to pass Feitosa (something I never see) and almost armbar him (again, something I NEVER see). In other words, Cobrinha is solid.
I know he is a black belt under Terere and that he trained a lot with Galvao. I think his game looks to be HEAVILY influenced by Galvao and Terere, more so than Telles. The positioning is really cool.
This might be one of the last DVDs we see for a while from a former TT guy, so in my opinion its worth it.
About the DVD... I only watched it once so far, but it is mostly guard work with a focus on omoplata's, combinations, and attacks. A lot of mobile open guard techs. I think most will get a kick out of the capoeira influenced techs too. The theme I'm picking up on is jiu-jitsu creativity. I wish that TT was still around, because these guys seemed very open minded in their training.
The only draw back is that it is in spoken Portuguese with Japanese subtitling. Still, it was relatively cheap for 50 or so moves for 39 bucks and Im a pretty good visual learner. For me the language thing isnt much of an issue. Also, some of the moves are more advanced in terms of grips - but i'd imagine a lot of the newer moves in Brazil are advanced as well. Still, I think most are pretty easy to try out.
Also, if any of you are like me you will LOVE the workout on the Swedish ball for mount and top game balance and the sparring session. The warm-ups are plain crazy. Man, CObrinha loves the omoplata. Also, the capoeira armbar is solid gold.
I picked the DVD up at budovideos' shop. They have a good write up of the techs included (there are a lot) and some pics on the site... (http://www.budovideos.com/shop/customer/product.php?productid=23348&cat=&page=)
I'll be watching this one for the next couple of months. A lot to absorb. I'll post an indepth review later.
