Royler Gracie DVD: Jiu-Jitsu Competition Tested Techniques Volume One: Throws and sweeps


This DVD, produced by Royler Gracie, looks to be a must-have for any serious Gracie Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. I just ordered my copy online from Haitasha Sports for $34 + shipping. Here's the website, and the description follows below:

Royler Gracie, one of the most renowned instructors and accomplished fighters in BJJ, now for the first time, releases an instructional DVD. The four times World BJJ Champion, three times World ADCC Champion demonstrates his favorite competition tested techniques in his first ever instructional DVD - Volume One: Throws And Sweeps.

For his first ever foray in the instructional DVD arena, the charismatic Royler teamed up with one of the top DVD filmmaker/editor, the producer of the Arte Suave Series, to create an epic and dynamic instructional. The DVD was filmed in studio in HD and reveals historic footage, some from 20 years ago, of Royler competing.

In this unique DVD, Royler Gracie reveals the techniques that he performed in international tournaments throughout his illustrious career. Each position is demonstrated by Royler and illustrated with competition footage. These competition-tested techniques have proven their effectiveness and will help practitioners of all skill levels improve their game.
