Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Self-Defense


Excellent work on the mats tonight! We spent the bulk of the class covering Gracie Jiu-Jitsu self-defense techniques. Again, the self-defense techniques are what separate traditional Gracie Jiu-Jitsu from the more sportive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

In the following video, Relson Gracie black belts Phil and Ricardo Migliarese demonstrate the Helio Gracie self-defense system. It's one of the most complete series of techniques I've been able to find and the moves are crisp. Remember, these techniques are required for promotion in the art: they're just as important as knowing how to escape cross-side or mount, or passing the guard.

Enjoy, and once again thank you for your dedication to the school and to yourselves.

See you all on the mat -- this Saturday!
