Editorial Reviews:

This instructional DVD set is the original Renzo Gracie/Craig Kukuk series that changed Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu forever. Originally selling for almost $400 dollars in the VHS version, we have digitally re-mastered this series for DVD. This 11 volume series deals with Sport Jiu-Jitsu and No Holds barred fighting and has hundreds of instructional techniques. Renzo Gracie and Craig Kukuk take you through each technique with clear, concise explanation that made this series a favorite for many learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for self-defense and hard core street fighting.

As an added bonus to the instructional material is some of the most brutal bare knuckle style fights from Brazil. These matches were long before the UFC and take place in gyms in Brazil and underground No Holds Barred events (many fights have no gloves). You will see Renzo Gracie himself in his early fights and many other Gracie’s crushing their opponents. Renzo and Craig teach tons of moves on this set and often stop in the teaching to show you a real fight were the technique they are teaching was done. This is a MUST have set for any grappler and fan of MMA. This set contains 11 volumes on 3 DVDS. Each DVD has a complete menu with chapter breaks for each technique.

Volume 1. Beginning Armlocks
Volume 2. Advanced Armlocks
Volume 3. Escape from the Bottom
Volume 4. Escape from the Headlock
Volume 5. The Guard
Volume 6. Defending the Mount
Volume 7. Beginning Chokes
Volume 8. Advanced Chokes
Volume 9. The Mounted Position
Volume 10. Passing the Guard
Volume 11. Takedowns and the Clinch

Summary: Good supplement, especially for beginners.
Comment: Very well done set of three DVD's covering varied concepts and techniques. Really good choice for beginners who want to supplement their training outside of class. Renzo Gracie can be a little hard to understand sometimes by gringo ears such as mine :D, but a few reviews of his explanations will clear things up nicely.

Summary: Good but very basic
Comment: This is a great DVD for people just starting Jiu Jitsu. Very old school, good moves, but if you are an intermediate blue and up it will look very redundant.

Summary: dated
Comment: The overall present is very good. However, some of the manuvers are dated particularly techniques for breaking the guard. Applying the technique shown on this DVD can result in creating an opportunity for the person in the guard using the technique shown to be placed in an armbar or trinagle choke. I expected more from this DVD.

Summary: Good basics
Comment: This DVD set is a great beginners gi instructional. For the novice, this instructional will give you good demonstration of fundamentals. Renzo & associate explain the techniques in great detail (maybe a little too much--I found the multiple replays of the move from different camera angles a little annoying). This is not a DVD for a person with more than basic understanding of the art as you won't find any fancy techniques like x-guard, rubberguard, e.t.c

Customer Rating: Average rating of 4/5Average rating of 4/5Average rating of 4/5Average rating of 4/5Average rating of 4/5
Summary: Easy to follow and solid techniques
Comment: As a white belt new to the sport, I find these DVDs very helpful and easy to follow. The best part is that the techniques work.
