Classic Jiu-Jitsu Techniques By Gregor Gracie


People ask all the time what is the fastest way to get better at Jiu-Jitsu. It’s easy to summon your inner Jocko Willink and  just say there are no shortcuts, and that’s GOOD. However there are some factors that can determine how one progresses in the infinitely deep ocean of Jiu-Jitsu. Obviously showing up to train as much as possible goes without saying.

Having High Level Fundamentals are one way to ensure that you will progress at a respectable rate. Fundamentals provide the foundation to your game. Beginners can stifle their progress by chasing the fancy Instagram technique they saw before class. If you can’t open the closed guard you cannot back flip over it! Many beginners find these videos extremely helpful The B.R.A.I.N. Method by Ron White.

If you want a game plan instead of one-off techniques It’s time to take your FUNDAMENTALS to the next level! Click Learn More!


In High Level Fundamentals Gregor Gracie provides the essential fabric to weave together your game. Gregor has achieved some of the highest levels possible in Jiu-Jitsu. At the same time he was becoming hyper focused on the fundamentals. In High Level Fundamentals you will see details to common tactics like the scissor sweep that you’ve never noticed. These details are what make fundamentals work at the highest level.

As much as we want to hit an inverted flying lasso sweep into the electric chair against an opponent with a pulse it’s probably not going to work. If you don’t see it pulled off at the highest levels of competition chances are it's reserved for Instagram street cred.

Back Take from Closed Guard

Classics like the closed guard are making a comeback. These tried and true tactics provide a road map to success. Gracie combines classic strategies with high level details that allow you to control your opponent, and let them wade into your traps. Hitting a classic scissor sweep into a mounted choke can be infinitely more satisfying than trying that flash in the pan technique where you get yourself in a predicament. Here is an example of Gregor’s teaching prowess with a slick back take from CLOSED GUARD!!!

As you can see from the short clip, Gregor excels at peeling back the curtain on techniques we’ve probably seen 100 times before. Not only showing the technique, but explaining why they actually work. Three distinct details will make this work for ANYONE!

How Gregor grips the sleeve is the first thing to notice. If you haphazardly try to break grips chances are it will fail and your opponent will feel more comfortable because the threat level will be reduced. Gregor specifically makes a cuff with his partner’s sleeve. This “doughnut” effect allows your fingers to do a little more work with the break.

Crossing the mid-line is another major factor of success that many beginners will neglect. By crossing the opponent’s arm across their mid-line, while simultaneously shifting your hips you can trap your opponent’s shoulder and posture. This makes the back more readily available.

The third detail that ties it all together is the job that the legs are doing. Gregor utilizes his classic closed guard to pull his partner away from their base. This concept can be referred to as “uprooting”. If your partner has a strong base they are rooted to the ground. By bringing your knees towards your chest the opponent’s base can start to be attacked which makes getting to the back much more manageable.
