I have both of Fowler's instructional DVD's - the overpriced one from Lloyd Irvin's Martial Arts Academy, and the one Fowler recently put out himself from Guam (much more reasonably priced). The first instructional is a filmed seminar; the second is a more conventional instructional DVD, showing a series of moves directed to the camera and not the seminar attendees.

These two DVDS are among the most "practical" that I, as a beginning blue belt, have. Good solid moves, different enough from what you usually see to give you a little edge. Most of all Fowler explains well - he has a knack for teaching. When I first came to BJJ, I figured there would be "fighters" (competitors) and "instructors" and the skill-sets wouldn't overlap that much. But people like Fowler, Hall, Go, Glover have all proved me wrong - the new breed of American BJJ players are good at BOTH competition and teaching.

In short, suck it up, pay the $50 (which was cheap a month ago but could be painful in the present frightful economy), you won't regret it. If I were in SE Asia, I know I would.

Oh yeah, Ivin is famous for leg locks, Ryan Hall has mean heel hooks, so if Fowler is teaching leg locks, I think you (lucky) guys are going to learn some good shit.

Hey Mike Fowler, film it, burn it, sell it, ok?
