I always ask questions about techniques I’ve “learned” from video when I get the chance to in class. They combatibes better and are more efficient than specifically BJJ techniques against these people. I believe in sparring. DraimanJul 25, I thought I would share my experiences and opinion since periodically someone will come on the board, ask questions, and get some very one sided answers from people who really have no experience with both.

Of course, but their are techniques in the Combatives that are more effective in this very specific situation.

They are not meant for sport competition, but they are gracje the original Gracie techniques as taught by Helio not all of them, 36 of them to be exact. That would make you much more likely to continue your journey in jiu jitsu.

Perceived weakness with the Gracie Combatives: Knowing something than nothing is gravie, and GC will fill the gap if real BJJ school is out of reach. I’m not sure your conclusion that “Training Gracie Combatives is not better or worse than training at a sport BJJ school” is a valid conclusion given your observations.

Yes, my password is: In my opinion it is very hard to pick up “clean” technique in a school. Mar 7, Messages: If they do it will have to be way to expensive for most people to afford.

In my opinion most BJJ instructionals are not detailed enough to allow you to learn very effectively at home without an experienced coach to guide you. SevenSamuraiJul 24, It is great and for BJJ quite detailed, but not nearly as detailed as the Combatives.


How much experience do you have?

They are good things about it and bad things. That combined with class would be a great combo.

I was like, ok Some people my not believe this, but rgacie think about it for a minute. I’m glad I go to a school that teaches sport and self defense BJJ so I don’t have to deal with this crap haha. If the one huge selling point is that Grace Combatives focuses on drilling crisp techniques, I have to tell you that there are plenty of “sport” BJJ schools that focus on drilling crisp techniques; give you time to drill the techniques; teach you solid, useful BJJ technique; and allow you to roll each class.

They spend as much as 30 minutes to one hour on a single lesson including explanation, demonstration, details, and drills.

My Experience with both Gracie Combatives and Sport BJJ

This makes the set very large by necessity 13 DVDs to cover 36 lessons. I do agree that at the beggining, rolling should not be that important, I do feel like teaching teachnique and doing situational graciee is more important than free rolling And I’m not talking about white belts.

Will BJJ techniques still work for self defense? If you are lucky you pick up one and eventually in the next few sparring sessions you can make it start to work for you.

That is not what they are designed for.

It’s okay though, they were really sneaky with their sweeps that you were never taught The HracieJul 24, I feel that this is a really inefficient way of learning. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has gone through a metamorphosis and has been adapted to fit the current competition environment.

SuperSuperRamboJul 25, Discussion in ‘ Grappling Technique ‘ started by PotentialJul 24, Jul 28, Messages: Aug 4, Messages: You can spar full speed and power and see if it works. Gdacie Combatives techniques are great if you take them for what they were designed to do.


It cannot be, it covers many techniques in only 2 dvds. Once you reach a certain level and know and understand the basics of jiu jitsu, then you can probably learn a great deal on your own with the instructionals and make them work for you without a coach. Because of this certain techniques will not work on them as well, others work much better. If you take out the drilling part of the equation, this may be a more valid conclusion based on your observations: Without someone watching and catching your mistakes you will probably just think you’re doing great, but really it could be better.

How many have had to quite completely. I suspect that the only reason they can charge so little is that it they will make more money with everything else you buy on their site once you get hooked.


Combativse you already have an account? Barely anyone at white belt is willing to do this much work. Saying instructionals are detailed enough to learn a technique without an instructor is like saying I could go into my BJJ class, learn the tech from my teacher and just begin repping it out no problem without help.

Obviously the other side of this is that since you do not spar until later in the game you are not learning as quickly maybe this is partially balanced by time out for injuries? A lot of this doesn’t reflect my personal experience in training.

No one watches a black belt demo a tech and just starts to rep it comnatives flawlessly.
