From the rough streets of Rio de Janeiro to the spotlights of the UFC, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has proven to be the most effective self-defense system of all time. In this special introductory video, produced in collaboration with Art of Manliness, Rener Gracie breaks down the exact science behind the techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu that have made the art effective against giants for three generations!
In the past you have seen our “Private Sessions” interviews, where we get to know various BJJ players. Now we will also be doing “Private Lessons” (you see what we did there?) videos featuring some of our favorite Jiu Jitsu personalities.
For our second installment of Private Lessons we are featuring Professor Keith Owen! Keith is a well known black belt under 8th Degree Coral Belt, Master Pedro Sauer. His videos on YouTube have always been among our favorites. He explains techniques with tremendous detail and is always sure to invoke a philosophical twist. He was our tenth Private Sessions interviewee. In this video Professor Owen teaches us the intricacies of the “UPA”, or the “Bridge from the Mount”!
Thank you Professor Owen for the technique!
