Techniques used in the chaos of a real fight...

August 28, 2012

The following testimonial was submitted by a GU student on August 21, 2012, in which he discusses how he is benefiting mostly from the new Bonus Breakdowns and Narrated Sparring Videos available through Gracie University subscription programs.

"I have found the Bonus Breakdown and Sparring videos to be a tremendous resource for myself and members of my Gracie Garage. The great thing about the Bonus Breakdowns is that they show how the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques are used in the chaos of a real fight. I found this especially important for our Garage members as we only see the techniques demonstrated in scripted Fight Simulation Drills as part of the Gracie University Curriculum; it is extremely insightful to see how positions can evolve, and the flexible mindset that is required in a real fight situation to take advantage of these unscripted evolutions. Our Garage members have also found the Sparring videos to be useful in our transition from a 'no sparring' mindset in the Gracie Combatives curriculum to the 'cooperative sparring' mindset that takes place in the Master Cycle curriculum. There is nothing better than hearing Rener or Ryron's insights to what is happening and what they is thinking about while the action occurs. These two additions to the curriculum have helped us to take our Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the next level."
