Who loved me without conditions and who taught me to do the same. To all those who came before me and forged the Grade legacy. To those of my family who succeed me in name and deed When I lie buried Tell future generations that I lived and fought According to my family's creed.
Royler Gracie: I want to dedicate this book to my father Helio Gracie, for without his labor, bravery, skill, and guidance neither this work nor the fate that drew me to it could have arisen. I also wish to dedicate it to the Gracie family as a whole, for without their combined efforts, past, present, and future, Brazilian jiu-jitsu could not have achieved the recognition and respect that it has.
I also want to include Sheik Zayed, father and mentor to Sheik Tahnoon, and to Sheik Tahnoon himself, the visionary who has done so much for the sport and the children.
Finally, to my wife and children, for all the love that we share. John Danaher: To all my wonderful family, especially my beloved Mother. Solitude begets the strength and depth That society mocks. Where does laughter and love return But in the warmth of the hearth? Kid Peligro: My work is dedicated to my friend Sheik Tahnoon bin Zayed for his inspiration, friendship, and advice. To Royler Gracie and Renzo Gracie for their lifetime of dedication to the art.
To the Gracie family for giving us this wonderful sport, to Sheik Hazza bin Zayed for his friendship, to my parents for all their love and support, to my wife, Susanne, who is my greatest supporter and friend, and to all the current and future participants in this wonderful sport that is Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

ISBN paper 1. Jiu-jitsu— Brazil. Gracie, Royler. Peligro, Kid. G73 The authors and the publisher assume no responsibility for the use or misuse of information contained in this book or for any injuries that may occur as a result of praticing the techniques contained herein.
The illustrations and text are for informational purposes only. It is imperative to prac- tice these holds and techniques under the stria supervision of a qualified instructor Additionally, one should consult a phy- sician before embarking on any demanding physical activity. Every revolution needs its leaders. As a kid I did judo, then karate, and finally Brazilian jiu-jitsu. I have had the great honor of attaining the rank of Black Belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and have dedicated the past ten years of my life to learning and appreciating every aspect of this beau- tiful sport.
So it was with great enthusiasm and honor that I accepted Sheik Tahnoon's invitation to make this book. Our goals were the same, to make a book that would be as good as the sport itself. The book needed to reach people inside and outside the sport and to set a new standard so that people in remote areas where there aren't quality instructors avail- able would be able to understand and learn this sport.
We first decided who was going to be in the book. That decision was easy. Two of the best in the world were available and willing to share in this dream and to open their knowledge and their hearts for everyone to share. We are referring to Renzo and Royler Gracie, who are considered to be experts in their field. Renzo and Royler are cousins and members of the famed Cracie family, accepted by all as the originators and ambassadors of this sport.
Next it was time to find a team that understands and loves the sport as much as myself, Sheik Tahnoon, Renzo, and Royler. We were fortunate enough to know one of the world's leading jiu-jitsu photographers and a black belt in the art itself, Ricardo Azoury. Then with the addition of a crack team of writers and artists, most of them Brazilian jiu- jitsu experts themselves, this book took shape. The process of putting together this work has been extremely demanding but equally rewarding, so I hope you enjoy reading it as much as we have enjoyed making it.
Kid Peligro Preface In the past decade there has been a truly significant para- digm shift in the martial arts. A series of mixed martial arts toumaments, pitting different fighting styles against one an- other with very few rules, was the catalyst for this revolution.
The initial results showed in a very clear manner that grap- pling styles of fighting were far more successful than the more heavily favored striking arts. This was a shock to most people, since martial arts had generally been conceived of as con- cemed mostly with punching and kicking skills.
Contrary to most people's preconceptions about real fighting, it was found that when there was no rigid set of sporting rules, almost all fights quickly went into a clinch, then to the ground. It was on the ground, in a grappling situation, that the outcome of the fight was almost always decided. To the traditional mar- tial arts, this was a disappointing result to say the least. Long accepted theories of lethal strikes and deadly blows seemed to evaporate in the face of reality.
The clear outcome of these mixed martial arts toumaments was that grappling, both in a standing position and on the ground, was absolutely crucial to success in real fighting. More than any other style of fighting- Brazilian jiu-jitsu became synonymous with success in these clashes between styles. Represented by the legendary Cracie family who created and refined Brazilian jiu-jitsu, the martial arts world was forced to sit up and take notice of this devas- tating martial art.
An unfortunate result of these early tourna- ments was the martial arts became divided between grap- plers and strikers. There is no need for such a distinction. Striking styles of martial arts need not, indeed, can not, turn their back on these recent changes and developments.
This book is not intended for grapplers only, but for anyone, re- gardless of martial arts style, who wants to improve their fight- ing skill and versatility by learning the crucial element of grap- pling and ground fighting. The book is coauthored by two of the most recognizable and active members of the Gracie clan, Renzo and Royler Gracie. From the start this book was writ- ten with a clear aim in mind: to offer to the martial arts com- munity at large a clear and accessible set of insights into the theory and techniques of the martial art at the center of the current revolution.
In the dawn of a new century the martial arts is in a state of transition the likes of which has not been seen in recent history.
After some initial misgivings and doubts it would appear that to a large degree the martial arts com- munity has come to accept the change for what it is: a libera- tion that has dramatically and unforgettably altered our per- ception of real combat. It is the intent of the authors to introduce the reader to the key elements of their distinctive style of fighting — Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Each is well known for their technical perfection and experience, both as fighters and as teachers.
It is intended to set the standard for instruc- tion in this fascinating and highly effective martial art. Along with central theoretical and historical themes, Renzo and Royler demonstrate what they take to be the essential tech- niques of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, along with a selection of advanced moves. Like any revolution, the change currently going on has its advocates and detractors. The initial result of the change was to divide martial artists into "grapplers" and "strikers," "modernists" and "traditionalists.
Experience has revealed that grap- pling on the feet and on the ground is almost inevitable in real combat. Here in this book the knowledge that can turn this faa to your advantage — regardless of your current style or skill level — are outlined in detail by two of the world's greatest authorities.
He is a very active and recognizable member of the grappling world, being the force behind the world submission wrestling championships held annually in Abu Dhabi — and himself a fine grappler.
The result is a book that will serve as an authoritative guide to those martial artists who wish to learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu and grappling arts. In doing so they can only improve their capac- ity to successfully handle and overcome opponents in a real confrontation. In a crowded martial arts school the students are going about their training.
Most of the students are lean and muscular— their bodies a reflection of the arduous training they are pushing themselves through. The majority of them are professional martial artists, black belts in other, more tra- ditional martial arts. The remainder are mostly security pro- fessionals, bouncers, policemen — people involved in the busi- ness of combat.
Others are white-collar businessmen, doctors, and lawyers. Their faces share a mask of hardness as they train. In here, all people are measured by one standard — their skill in grappling. Reputation, appearance, and voca- tion are all irrelevant once you step on the mat. Something has brought them here to this unkempt school. The students separate into pairs and engage in grappling bouts, alternating bursts of great speed and strength with periods of heavy breathing and rest.
Each strives to attain a dominant position, or, if possible, a lock or choke that will force the other to signal submission by slapping the mats upon which they wrestle. As they struggle with each other some students be- gin to stand out as more skilled than others.
The exhausting nature of their exercise quickly drenches them in sweat. Off to the side of the mats a man periodically shouts out advice or encouragement. His voice exudes a Portuguese accent, yet his features are South American. He is Brazilian. When he talks, the students listen. Those that follow his advice as they grapple almost invariably overcome their opponents or at least escape whatever danger they were in. In most martial arts schools this is unheard of. The teacher is always referred to in honorific or deferential terms such as "Sensei" or "Sifu.
There is no sense of hierarchy in their dialogue, no deference to idols.
Other populist movements want to go further. Very good condition. This program is totally focused on the best pin and turtles escapes you need to master for BJJ. Guard retention, at its core, is so key to success in jiu-jitsu and John is The Go Further Faster series, like the Enter The System series of instructional releases, operates with a very important goal: to identify and explain the.

Whether it is in no-holdsbarred events like the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Pride, or in the ADCC World Submission Wrestling Championships, submission grappling is the style that the world s greatest athletes are using to pit themselves against one another and determine who reigns supreme.
