Amazing Principle! A must see!

Principle of guard and passing for all level and all ages! Priceless:)


A little difficult to understand but his concepts and techniques are well worth it. Excellent DVD. Definitely would purchase again

Old school BJJ is making a comeback ...

This instructional is full of great content and differs from most other DVDs on this subject due to Master Moreira setting forth clear rules and principles of guard passing. Instead of a DVD full of collections of techniques, he shows how his principles of passing apply to many common situations in modern BJJ. Master Moreira isn't extremely articulate in English, and some may find this frustrating at times. However, if watched a time or two (like I do anyway) I can generally understand everything he says. This DVD is a must have for those who enjoy the pressure game, and want to develop a usable, repeatable skill set that will last them a lifetime on the mats long after father time catches up with us.
