variations of the moves is truly astounding. We use his videos to
supplement our hands on practice of takedown and grappling

The Most Complete Look at Brazilian Jiu-jitsu on DVD
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu * Submission Grappling * Vale Tudo
No Other Set on the Market Covers All Aspects of the Game Like this one!
Each Aspect of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Fighting is covered in this Incredible
New DVD Set: Sport Jiu-jitsu with the Gi, Submission Grappling (Sport
without the Gi) and Vale Tudo/MMA (No Rules Fighting)! The Most Advanced
Techniques from all positions are covered in each area: Standing, Guard
Passing, Top Control and Guard, Sweeps and Submissions, Escapes, Counters,
Reversals and More! This DVD set is the most complete look at Brazilian
Jiu-jitsu on DVD.
Some people buy DVDs that cover one aspect of the game as they need to
work on it and in the process, end up spending hundreds or even thousands
of dollars! If you are serious about being Well-Rounded and taking your
game to the next level, this set will save you time and money!
Now you don't have to fumble through a bunch of DVDs to find the
technique you want to work on!
Each Volume has chapter breaks on every technique for easy reference and
navigation and is Organized JUST LIKE THE Award Winning Master Text.
Advanced Details and Techniques that couldn't be shown on paper come to
Life in crystal clear digital quality on Screen!
Unlock the Secrets of Jiu-jitsu with the right combination of moves!
While many other instructionals show a good move here and there, this set
will show you the proper sequence, grouping and set-ups to use when
fighting a more advanced opponent. Details within each move are shown
that are often overlooked or hidden by Jiu-jitsu instructors. A Triangle
Choke is a move that everyone learns in the first few months of Jiu-jitsu
training, yet Black Belts get it on each other all the time … so why
aren't you? In order to make moves work on advanced fighters, you have to
know what their counter or reaction will be. This series will show you
the counter, then how to counter that counter along with the proper time
and place to perform them so that you can easily predict where your
opponent will be before he goes there. Along with new advanced
techniques, you'll learn the hidden details inside even the most basic of
moves to make them work at a truly advanced level.

These DVDs are PACKED with Information!
Each DVD contains two to three times more information than the average
instructional DVD. No unnecessary slow motion or repeat techniques to
fill space or waste time; each move is gone over clearly in plain English
with multiple camera angles so that no detail is missed. There are no
long winded time wasters to fast forward through, making this an excellent
reference set. Each technique is described and shown clearly and
completely, and then on to the next so you get more moves for your money.
Why are these DVDs only available as a Set?
There are several reasons we only sell the Mastering Brazilian Jiu-jitsu
DVD series as a set. The first is money; we would normally sell an
advanced DVD with this much information for $39.95 and selling them at
that price would mean a cost of nearly $320 for all 8 DVDs. By packaging
the DVDs together, it saves on unnecessary cost of materials, allowing us
to charge less. The other reason is due to the presentation of
information and the way jiu-jitsu works at an advanced level. Unlike many
other instructionals, this set follows a logical progression, showing
set-ups and linking techniques together so that you can trick your
opponent into making mistakes or stay a few moves ahead. This is the kind
of game that truly separates a beginner from an advanced practitioner; a
novice can get a single submission on another novice, but you will need to
understand the set up to get that same submission on a more skilled
opponent. Another reason is teaching method: there is a way to teach
Jiu-jitsu so that you learn faster and retain high levels of information
through logical progression and proper grouping of techniques; this set
will give you the combination to unlock your advanced potential.
Here are Just SOME
of the Techniques Detailed in this Series:
DVD One - Standing Techniques
Learn techniques from the feet for Sport jiu-jitsu with the Gi, Submission
Grappling and MMA/Vale Tudo fighting. Well organized chapters can be
reviewed through full motion picture menus that break down each technique
within style groupings. Learn takedowns using the gi and attacks like a
special variation of the flying armbar that anyone can do. Moves are
sequenced together so that your opponent's defense to one opens the door
to your next takedown. The secrets of takedowns without the gi are taught
for submission grappling competitors along with some surprising reversals
and counters that your opponent will not expect … unless he has this set!
In addition to takedowns, you will learn how to finish your opponent from

more, plus you'll learn the counters and reversals to these moves. The

Then read to what these EXPERTS have to say about Gene Simco...
Major Chuck P., an Army Combatives Instructor at the
prestigious U.S. Military Academy at West Point with REAL combat experience
and 6 years of BJJ talks about Gene's Instruction
I recently had the pleasure of having Gene Simco teach a BJJ class to a
group of Army officers and United States Military Academy cadets. I am
currently in my sixth year as a practitioner of BJJ. I have served as a
combatives instructor at the Infantry School at Fort Benning, Georgia and
currently I am teaching combatives at the United States Military Academy
at West Point. Gene organized a quick drill to quickly access the level
of proficiency of each fighter in the room, and then began to teach. Gene
has the unique ability to simplify the simple and get you focused on the
importance of the basics. He personally worked with every fighter in the
at the end of two hours every student had improved their ground
For the next three days,
we drilled the techniques taught
by Gene, and our ability to pass the guard has improved drastically.
folks that I have trained with always want the high end "flying arm-bar"
type of instruction. Gene quickly showed us where we were sloppy with our
basics. Within seconds of listening to Gene, watching him teach and move
on the ground, you realize that
he is world class and worth listening to.
Gene has a professional but personable style and is able to speak and
teach at the appropriate level to each student.
I would recommend
learning from Gene personally or through the use of his books and videos
to anyone wanting to improve their military/police combatives, sport BJJ,
MMA, or self defense skills.

... or these BJJ Black Belts
Hi: this is Jacare. I've been training bjj for 35 years and Gene's
book is one of the best books in the market. I strongly advise
everybody that practise jiu jitsu to buy it.
-- Romero "Jacare´" Cavalcanti (founder of Alliance Jiu-jitsu and one
of 5 Rolls Gracie Black Belts)
One of my students got your book (The Master Text) and I personally think
that is a great book. Very good technique and also good pictures. You
are just making it easy for people to learn.
- Gustavo Machado
...and Ultimate Fighting Champions
Gene Simco happens to be a very important part of The Pit, our curriculum,
and our fight team. Gene is a valuable resource to us, as well as a good
friend. He worked Gan McGee's corner in his last UFC fight,
Chuck Lidell, Team Quest (Randy Coture, Matt Linland, Dan Henderson), BJ Penn
all respect Gene and find his book (The Master Text) a great learning tool.
Good idea for any doubters...get your ass up to Poughkeepsie, NY, and see
if you can hang with Gene on the mat (not many can).

...or People Like YOU
The counters from Half Guard you show on your Master Text DVD set are
awesome. The higher belts at my school pull half guard on me all the time
and before I watched your set, they were either sweeping me all over the
place or tapping me out but
now I'm tapping them from their favorite position!
Thanks for releasing this kind of information and making it
easy to understand.

I spent thousands of dollars on DVD sets from the latest fighter of the
month claiming to teach some new move he invented only to realize that its
been around for 100 years and one move won't make you a better fighter.
Some of these fighters have been fighting since they could walk and don't
know what its like to be you, they should leave the teaching to the
teachers! Gene Simco wasn't born into some martial arts family, he has
the system for teaching this stuff and holds nothing back. His reputation
is based on great instruction and

- Mike Adams, FL
I trained at a 'fight family' BJJ academy for years and watched the
children of these 'teachers' surpass loyal students who have been training
there for years longer. I can understand how they don't want to create
competition for themselves, but information is obviously being 'kept in
the family'. Your products were an eye opening experience for me.
amazing to see all the details that I wasn't being taught!
- Jason Williams, CA
The Master Text DVD set is absolutely the most amazing thing I've ever
seen! Although it had so many moves, almost too many moves, it was easy
to navigate and well organized. Man, you really found the perfect balance
here and as I watch it again and again and again, I find it a challenge to
see anything in BJJ that's missing.
