Editorial Reviews

"On its own, volume 3 could be a very useful resource in developing a deeper understanding of shoulder locks. The entire set (so far) looks like it will be fairly comprehensive and will serve as a great resource for learning how to use these locks as well as a great resource for picking up tips on how to teach them. I'd recommend this volume, as well as the whole set, for students and instructors of arts with similar joint locks and I would especially recommend this set to Hapkido practitioners who may be tired of seeing Hapkido "instructional" tapes that look more like a simple demonstration instead of an examination of the "nuts and bolts" of how these things work. This is a superb resource." - Thomas O. Morrison

Joint locks are some of the most versatile techniques found in martial art curriculums. They can be used submit opponents, control rowdy people, or injure attackers, making them ideal for various self-defense and violent encounters, and a must for anyone working in law enforcement or security. Unfortunately, they can also be some of the most difficult techniques to learn and master. That is until now. The Lock On: Joint Locking Essentials series is a comprehensive guide to joint locks and one of the most complete programs available for practical joint locking information. In this original Aiki Productions DVD series, Hapkido and Self-defense instructor Alain Burrese presents detailed instruction on the mechanics of each lock, proper execution, and various applications to enable the viewer to learn the essentials of applying joint locks in any situation. This program is a must for every serious student of martial arts and self-defense. Volume 3: Shoulder Locks includes detailed instruction on a variety of shoulder locks, including: an explanation of the shoulder, raising arm locks, pulling shoulder locks, various chicken wing locks, figure four locks, and more. If you want to take your joint locking ability to the next level, you must have Lock On: Joint Locking Essentials Volume 3: Shoulder Locks. Alain Burrese's martial art and self-defense career started in 1982, and includes living and training in South Korea where he continues to return and train on a regular basis. He teaches Self-defense, Safety, and Martial Art programs around the country and his previous works include Hard-Won Wisdom From the School of Hard Knocks, Hapkido Hoshinsul, Streetfighting Essential, and Hapkido Cane. Easy access menus.

Mr. Burrese covers both sides and makes each lock available offensively as well as defensively.

As I sat down to review this DVD in the Lock On series, I found that I was going to have a difficult time writing this review as the basics of this DVD are exactly the same as the previous two volumes Lock On: Joint Locking Essentials Volume 1: Wrist Locks with Alain Burrese and Lock On: Joint Locking Essentials Volume 2: Arm Bars & Elbow Locks with Alain Burrese, which in and of itself is a fantastic thing. Therefore a lot of my review is going to be a partial repeat of my previous two reviews on volumes one and two in the Lock On series. So without further ado here is my review on this DVD.

One of the first things that jumped out at me from the onset when I started watching Alain's "Lock On" series of DVD's was the simple yet effective approach that he took in the production and presentation of this series of DVD's. My initial impression was one of being in an actual seminar environment while Alain was teaching instead of merely watching an instructional DVD. You won't find any pointless or ineffective "bells and whistles" with this series; instead what you will find is good quality instruction covering a wide array of joint locking techniques. This particular DVD focuses on shoulder locking techniques.

Alain's ability to instruct you on these simple, yet effective shoulder locking techniques is the hallmark of a good instructor and it certainly shows in this series. Alain's approach is straightforward and easy to follow as he takes you through each shoulder lock numerous times in order to teach you how to execute each technique correctly.

I'm asked to review people and things quite a bit these days. As the owner of [...] I come into contact with martial artists worldwide. I'm sent video clips, research papers, DVD's etc, all asking for my opinion. Unfortunately, most of what I review these days is pure garbage, at least from a self-defense perspective. Fortunately, this time around, the person asking for my review was Alain Burrese and the product, "Lock On: Joint Locking Essentials Volume 3: Shoulder Locks". Why do I say fortunately? From talking with Mr. Burrese on-line and reading his published work I've come to expect quality, in this expectation I was not disappointed.

First, the technical aspect of the DVD. It was taped in a well lit venue with a blue background and flooring. This contrasted nicely with the white uniforms and allowed the movements to be clearly seen. This is a plus since being able to see the presentation is the reason for buying the DVD in the first place. Secondly, the sound was clear and crisp. No need to hit the rewind to try and catch what was just said.

Now on to the meat of the DVD. I should pause for a moment and state that I have no reservations in saying exactly what is on my mind. I've had on-line wars with net-ninjas and cyber-warriors. If something is garbage, I won't...and haven't been afraid to say so. With that little tidbit in mind, I was very pleased with what Mr. Burrese presented. Here's why;

1. He begins with a detailed explanation of the anatomy of the shoulder and the various balance displacement and mobility planes that exist in which to control movement or exploit its weaknesses.

2. In teaching a particular `technique', he goes further into the principle behind the technique.

Volume 3 "Shoulder Locks"

The third installment of the "Lock On" series continues the high standards set by the previous two volumes. The production qualities are good, with nice contrast in the background and people, and with good sound quality. There are a few barely noticeable editing errors, but they do not detract in any way from the overall outstanding quality of the DVD.

For me, the organization of the material is the strongest selling point. In contrast to other instructional DVDs that present a wide variety of disparate techniques to deal with a specific situation, the "Lock On" DVDs present a core technique, sometimes with variations, and show a student how to apply that technique in a variety of situations. The difference is that the focus is now on the technique instead of the situation, allowing for a deeper exploration of that specific technique and how to use it. And, by incorporating previously covered blocks, footwork, and principles, it reinforces a more spiraled curriculum that builds upon itself.

On its own, volume 3 could be a very useful resource in developing a deeper understanding of shoulder locks. The entire set (so far) looks like it will be fairly comprehensive and will serve as a great resource for learning how to use these locks as well as a great resource for picking up tips on how to teach them. I'd recommend this volume, as well as the whole set, for students and instructors of arts with similar joint locks and I would especially recommend this set to Hapkido practitioners who may be tired of seeing Hapkido "instructional" tapes that look more like a simple demonstration instead of an examination of the "nuts and bolts" of how these things work. This is a superb resource.
