"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
