The first volume of our CMC series starts with entries from the most common scrimmage position in the vast majority of grappling schools--the short offense (both fighters beginning on their knees facing each other with a collar-and-elbow tie).  While I question the wisdom of primarily scrimmaging from here, there is no reason not to use it as a jumping off point to begin building an aggressive offensive/defensive base from the get-go.  This volume covers: Immediate Snapping to "break the second handshake."  The two fundamental must-have go-behinds from the snap.  How to properly hit the 2 varieties of Reverse 1/4 Nelsons from this position.  How to use the Reverse 1/4's to hit Chin Hook Cranks or Spurs to movement.  Popping the neck with the completion of either variety of Reverse 1/4.  How to transition seamlessly to both versions of a Modified 3/4 Nelson versus a blocked and posted Reverse 1/4 Nelson.  How to pop the neck yet again with either version of the completed Modified 3/4 Nelson.  (Remember Crew, we use our Nelsons to damage and gain the tap, not to pin.)  Next, we slap on a Snapped Hook Chancery and why to skip the Post Chancery or New School Guillotine while in Short Offense.  Next, we use the Snap to set up both varieties of Front Headlock (Locked Grip and the Hook & Lift) and why killing the base during Front Headlocks is more important than the snugness of your grip.  And we will close out this initial volume with a Front Headlock Go-Behind followed up with a dovetail submission to keep it all vicious.  This volume, as with all of out RAW material, comes with a printed syllabus for inclusion in your training notebook.  (Hang on to these syllabi because at some point in the Combination Man Curriculum run, we will supplement and key these syllabi to a Master Text for easy Drill & Technique search.)
