Fight Smarter. Fight Better. Powerful and practical, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has consistently proven its effectiveness in mixed martial arts competitions such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship.® In Vale Tudo Competitions, there are few rules, and in street fighting, there are none. In both of these violent environments BJJ has masterful strategies and ingenious tactics that let you conquer again and again.
No Rules will enable you to learn and master those strategies and tactics strategies and apply them in the heat of the fight. BJJ authority and master teacher Gene Simco reveals the keys to every aspect of no-holds-barred fighting, from standing attacks to brutal ground finishing strikes and submissions. Simco also shows you how to defend against Vale Tudo techniques and explains the possible dangers of each attack and defense. No Rules is the first book to bridge the gap between sport Jiu-jitsuwhere there is no striking and fighters wear a Gi (and often incorporate it into their techniques)and Vale Tudo, which has no Gi and allows striking. If you play sport Jiu-jitsu, No Rules will show you how to adapt what you know to Vale Tudo and reveal a new world of move and countermove that will allow you to win in the harsh but exciting world of Vale Tudo competition. Learn how to:
Pass the guard - with crucial modifications of sport Jiu-jitsu techniques
Attack and submission moves from the top position
Establish the Mount and overwhelm your opponent
Take the Back to end it fast

"I am a veteran Police Officer with 23 years of experience in a major city in the North east. I am currently assigned to their Emergency Service Unit which performs a SWAT function for the city. I routinely handle high risk warrant service, violent felons, emotionally disturbed persons, barricaded gunmen and hostage takers. I have found that for me Gene Simco's No Rules BJJ: Street Effective Groundfighting series is a practical, pragmatic approach to functionalizing your bjj skills for non-mat friendly environments. The organization and presentation of the material is clear and progressive, easily assimilated by both the beginner and advanced practitioner looking to transition his or her skills from the mat to the street. Focus is also given to developing a street guard as well as beating the guard which presents a sizable amount of problems for the uninitiated. The dvd set offers any level practitioner enough variation, detail and ideas that can be successfully integrated into their own every day practice."
