Welcome to the technical universe of Roger Gracie, the fighter who revitalized the basic BJJ positions and proved the efficiency of the old school in the modern era.
In this program, you are going to learn four special techniques from his repertoire -- the favorite positions of one of the greatest competitors in the history of the sport.
The program contains two attacks from the closed guard (one sweep and one transition to the opponent's back) and two finishes from the mount, Roger's signature position. With the help of this unstoppable artillery, Roger did phenomenally well in IBJJF events as well as in the ADCC, where he won the absolute title in 2005. And that's leaving out a victorious MMA career, in which he managed to adapt the technical fountain studied in this brief course.
After studying Roger's positions, you will be able to perfectly distribute your weight and maintain the mount, pressing your opponent until you finish them on the arm or neck.
Additionally, check out how you can safely play with your back on the ground, controlling the passer's movement through correct grips and proper hip-positioning, sweeping to land on top or moving to a back attack.
Born on September 26, 1981, Roger Gracie is a three-time absolute BJJ world champion with ten gold medals under his black belt. The son of Maurição Gomes and Reila Gracie has broken every sort of record. As a finisher, no one has made their opponents tap out more times in the history of the sport. And from a defensive standpoint, his feat is even bigger: Roger has never been submitted in competition. In the gi, Roger was an absolute champion at ADCC 2005, where he even finished Ronaldo Jacaré, his greatest rival. In MMA, he has a record of eight wins and two losses. Roger retired from BJJ competition in 2017 with a superfight versus the fearsome Marcus Buchecha, who ended up being spectacularly choked from the back.
