Yeah I have it. I won't talk bad about it as both these guys are great practicioners in their own right. It didn't do much for me though and didn't really see the synthesis I was hoping for.

Basically it showed aikido waza then would transition into BJJ waza. Nothing earth shattering for me, but then again, I am a Aikidoka and a BJJer so could be that I was looking for something else.

No prob. I bought it when it first came out. Feitosa is respected within Gracie Barra circles so naturally I was excited. When I viewed it though it just didn't work for me.

I thought about doing a similar concept video someday but I am sure it is harder to produce than it looks.

They are really good. Roy has done a great job of melding the two arts together and finding the common ground between them.
