Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Basics DVD

Rorion and Royce share simple techniques for taking your opponent to the ground and effectively dealing with every basic aspect of a street fight, including the application of armlocks and chokes.

During the early 1930's Helio Gracie, the mastermind of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, became Brazil's first fighting legend. His first-born son, Rorion, began practicing this method of self-defense at the age of 2. In the late 70's, after graduating Law School at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Rorion decided to bring his family's techniques to the United States.

In 1993, Rorion Gracie created the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC®) with the objective of answering the age old question: Which martial art was the most effective for a real street fight? Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was the answer when his brother Royce defeated representatives of Karate, Kung Fu, Savate, Wrestling, Boxing, Kickboxing, among others in the no-holds-barred arena.

It is a fact that 95% of all real fights go into a clinch and eventually end up on the ground. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is the only martial art that effectively addresses ground fighting - the most important aspect of any real fight. These simple and effective techniques do not require strength, speed or coordination.
