My name is Stephan Kesting. I'm a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt and a submission wrestling instructor. I operate some very popular grappling websites, including Grapplearts.com and BeginningBJJ.com. With these sites I help thousands of people just like you quickly improve their grappling skills. You might also know me from my instructional grappling DVDs, or the 20+ articles I've published in magazines like Black Belt, TapOut, Ultimate MMA and Grappling. I've got an entire line of instructional DVDs, but my flagship instructional product is The Grappling Concepts Course. This is my very best, most complete, most detailed information on grappling. Plus I'll throw in five DVDs as a special bonus, including the Advanced Techniques and Tactics Series, which aren't available any other way.
This is the world’s first instructional video set designed to give you an edge over bigger, stronger opponents in no gi grappling.
“Spider Guard Masterclass with Elliott Bayev and Stephan Kesting gives you the keys to the kingdom. It’s an impressive breakdown of this complex guard position and the areas surrounding it. It’s got something for every position and scenario you might encounter. This is a valuable resource for both students and instructors.”
Desert Poems both consolidates and expands Stephan Micus's solo quest to fashion a music of archetypal, world-ranging import: music–often modal in nature–which would be both as old as the proverbial hills, yet as fresh as tomorrow. If you've followed this multi-instrumentalist's musical odyssey of the past 30-or-so years (this is something like his 15th solo project) you probably won't need any encouragement to buy an album that finds Micus's mastery of such instruments as the sarangi, nay, shakahuchi, steel drum and humble flower pot enhanced by a range of solo and polyphonic vocals. His pan-global sources are filtered to create a somewhat sombre, strongly devotional sense of the deeper rhythms of life to which music may awaken us. Apart from the vocalising on pieces like "Contessa Entellina", standout tracks include the solo shakuhachi feature "First Snow" and an instrumental reworking of "Shen Khar Venakhi", a masterpiece of old Georgian polyphony.
