It helped to piece together my jiu jitsu puzzle...

"The BJJ DVD from Gene Simco is great for beginners' students who don't have the time to train all the time and no time for private classes. With this DVD you can take the time to review step by step to see how the positions work - also, what I like a lot about this video is that Simco details each technique (Attack Order, Pressure, Angles, Tightness, Application, Timing,) with great explanation, making each movement easy to understand.
I was highly impressed with his ability to explain key points that stuck with me as I hit the mat and for any bjj student, to come home after a hard night rolling and pick up this DVD will certainly improve your game and help piece together the parts of your jiu jitsu puzzle. This DVD is sure to add to your game...
A DEAL AND A HALF

"Anything by this man is good.
Gene Simco is a genius at teaching the grappling arts!!!!!
Watching it I felt as though he was teaching me personally. I am not kidding about what I am about to say,.........I sat there and mouthed out loud questions that a few seconds later he answered. What I am trying to say is that he is so in touch with what the student's queries because he keeps in touch with the student within himself.
This man is a true teacher and a great grappler. If you are interested in grappling, this is the DVD for you.
You cannot lose!!!!!!"
Great technique, but waffles on a bit.

"I found this to be a great instructional DVD. The techniques he showed were not unlike other DVD's, however with each technique he shows a slight twist here or angle change there that can mean the difference between a really tight inescapable lock to a loose one. These small differrences make a big differrence.
The only negative thing I would say is he waffles on a bit. He introduces too many concepts while trying to demonstrate the basic technique. It would be easier to grasp if the basic technique was introduced first, then show the finer points and variations of the basic. It leaves you thinking "come on, get on with it" a lot. But the actual techniques are great."
A steal for the price compared to the others

"This product was a steal for the price! I ordered the Gracie method, which is excellent, but I think they spend too much time going over the "fine details" of each move on that video series---it is so drawn out it gets boring to watch! This video is right to the point. The moves are clearly demonstrated, but there isn't so much talking and they don't do the same thing over and over so many times (isn't that what a rewind button is for?). If you master all the moves on this video, you could probably at least be ready for the blue belt test in jiu jitsu at most schools. They do a drill alternating between the triangle choke, arm bar, etc. (3 moves---can't spell the 3rd one!)---my teacher surprised us all by throwing that very drill on our belt test...I was ready for it because of these videos (we never did it in class). I would definitely buy the intermediate/advanced videos if/when available. I hope this helps."
