This skinny Brazilian named Royce Gracie used his brand of ground fighting to dominate in the UFC and change the martial arts forever!

Dear Friend,

I always tell people that if you’re the least bit serious about learning how to defend yourself, then you absolutely must know the proven, “battle-tested” techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Here’s why…

“Most – nearly ALL – fights end up on the ground or in grappling range at one point or another.” That’s a FACT.

That means basically that if you don’t know how to defend yourself on the ground, you’re putting yourself (and even your loved ones) at extreme risk!

Let’s face it. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a “must-know” style for any professional mixed martial artists like the guys fighting in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). And these days, it should most definitely be a “must-know” for pretty much anyone.

That’s because the “fight-ending submissions” and “fight-controlling positions” of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu have been battle-tested in combat, in the cage, and on the street.

How A Skinny Guy From Brazil Named Royce Gracie Won the 1st UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) Using ‘Secret’ Grappling Techniques

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (or “BJJ”) has been around for a very long time… long before a no-holds-barred fighter from Brazil named Royce Gracie made it popular in the early ’90s when he won the very first UFC – which at the time the UFC was a “bare knuckle” event and had “no rules” – and he won it in dominating fashion, ending all of his fights on the ground with ease, using his “Secret BJJ Techniques.”

The crazy thing about what Royce Gracie did was that he was only around 180 pounds when he fought.

He was this skinny guy who didn’t “look” like a fighter. But he won those fights easily and exposed a glaring weakness in all of the martial arts… that most people were absolutely clueless on how to defend themselves once a fight got to the ground.

At the time these mysterious moves this fighter was using were secrets to MOST people because hardly anybody in America was aware of them at the time.

You had these huge, strong, scary-looking guys who had skills on their feet but once they got within grappling range, the fight went to the ground and it was all over.

Quality Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Training is Hard to Find!

A big problem many people who want to start training BJJ have is that they can’t find a quality school to train at.

There’s just not that many good schools out there that are truly qualified to train people in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and submission grappling.

Sure, a lot of schools “say” they’re good, but the reality is that professional, quality BJJ schools are hard to find.

That’s the bad news… the GOOD news is that you live close by to the top BJJ school in your area.

And, for a limited time, we’re offering a beginner level 7-day Free Trial Program so you can see if our proven BJJ training system meets your needs!

But Grappling is Too Hard!

I’ve heard people say that they think grappling is WAY TO HARD and are hesitant to give it a shot. This isn’t true in the slightest.

Actually it’s a pretty funny misconception. I guess some people think that if they come to learn from us we’re going to toss them into the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) events… WRONG!

Grappling is super FUN first and foremost. And It doesn’t require any previous experience…at all!

Anyone can do it, big or small, thick or thin, young or old, flexible or not, experienced folks, non experienced folks, anyone can take BJJ classes.

If you have ever thought that martial arts training may be for you I would urge you to come in and see our program for yourself.

I guarantee that you’ll absolutely love it.
