My product review of Brandon Quick's "Chokes" app for the iPhone


From time to time I have the opportunity to review some great products from generous companies like BudoVideos and Victory Belt.

Normally the products I review are instructional books or DVDs, but recently I had the opportunity to review something new - an iPhone application on chokes from my friend Brandon "Never Quit" Quick.

It's a great product and has potential for some excellent application - it's also a very cost-effective training supplement for anyone that trains BJJ or MMA.

Head over to Pro MMA Now to check out my review.

Take a look at iTunes to purchase Chokes. At just $2.99 (plus tax), it's a steal.
