Jiu Jitsu Invincible Basics 4 Disc DVD Set is an expert guide to helping any beginner master the all-important basics. This is an easy step-by-step video tutorial for beginners and intermediate athletes. Taught by Brazilian Jiu Jitsu legend Renato Migliaccio. He is a former World Champion, European Champion, and Pan American Champion. He is a well known BJJ instructor and coach in the Los Angeles, CA area where he works with students of every age and all levels. This is a super easy curriculum that lets anyone learn all the must-know techniques needed before reaching the purple belt. Many Karate schools buy this DVD to better understand the Ground game. It is a kit of basic survival essentials that quickly equips any student with a firm foundation. Reviewers note this 4 DVD set has much higher quality instruction than what is normally seen in other videos. Coach Migliaccio breaks everything down into bite-sized moves that let anyone quickly get a grasp on correct ways to perform basic moves. This Brazilian instructional DVD set has been warmly greeted by BJJ students and other athletes. Wrestlers are using this to improve their performances and make them more competitive. The techniques taught in this DVD set can also be used by people who want to stay active and flexible while burning calories and building strength. Migliaccio has even used these same techniques to excel for a time as a fighter in the MMA. Because of Coach Migliaccio’s many years of experience teaching all age groups, he knows the best ways to make BJJ easy for students to master. Reviewers point to the ease of learning, the very high quality of instruction, and the distinct lack of confusing sequences, moves, and language. Every effort was made to make this 4 DVD set easy to understand, simple to learn, all while giving students a spectacular advantage in later learning and training.
DVD 1: Exercises and Throws
The first part of the first DVD is all designed around strength and conditioning for the athlete. I really enjoy how they take a crawl, walk, run technique to explain everything. They also start with the most basic techniques and work the way up to the more advanced. The DVD starts with some of the more basic calisthenics such as push ups, lunges, squats, etc. As the video progresses the calisthenics become more and more challenging. For example one of my favorite exercises they demonstrated are what I call Spiderman pushups. Once they finish with these exercises they move into sport specific motions such as break falls, shrimping, and bridges. These ensure you will be able to move properly for the rest of the moves shown throughout the DVDs.
After the conditioning portion we transition into our throws and takedowns. They are all very basic and easy to chain together but that’s a good thing for a beginner white belt or someone not so familiar with wrestling in judo. Some of the takedowns and throws they show are a single leg takedown, a double leg, a hip throw, shoulder throws, and head throws. I feel this DVD could have been longer and focused more on the nuances to the takedowns and throws instead of the calisthenics.
DVD 2: Escapes and Replacing the Guard
The second DVD is all about escapes and regaining your guard. This is probably the best things to learn when first learning BJJ as it is what the average white belt will be spending most of their time doing. They have some interesting ways to escape submissions that aren’t necessarily the traditional way to escape.
One such example is how he stands up to sit back in a triangle choke. When he sits back he places his feet in the opponents armpits and pushes away hard to break the grip. He also includes standard escapes such as escaping the triangle to double unders or stacking up the opponent in an armbar from guard. The combination of both allows the viewer to pick which ones they like which I really appreciate. He also goes over escapes from bad positions such as back control.
The second part of this DVD covers how to get back to your guard from a bad position. This is a crucial skill to develop for anyone who is interested in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because you would rather have your opponent in your guard instead of on top of you in positions like side control. I like how it doesn’t show how to just get back to your full guard but it also shows how to improve the current guard you are in if your opponent messes up your positioning. My favorite one is how he shows to get back to a solid butterfly guard after being squashed down by your opponent.
DVD 3: The Guard- Sweeps and Submissions
The third DVD focuses on sweeps and submissions from the bottom. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is famous for fighting off of the back, a skill set not covered in other martial arts. Once again the crawl, walk, run method is used with first showing basic submissions such as kimuras and armbars, then he moves on to more advanced submissions such as omoplatas, and finally he moves onto submission chains which are a more advanced skill set. If you’re a guy who likes triangle chokes then you will love this DVD. He covers multiple triangle set ups and a lot of the chains all end in the triangle choke.
The next part covers sweeps from the bottom. These sweeps will enable you the ability to take top position after being on the bottom. The sweeps are very basic which will help newer grapplers learn the fundamentals of BJJ before diving into more advanced sweeps. Some of the sweeps he covers are the flower sweep, the knee wrap sweep, and the traditional butterfly sweep. He also shows the different options the fighter has if his sweep fails with a lot of them ending in a back take.
DVD 4: Top Position
The fourth and final DVD is all about the top game. Not only is he showing the techniques but also he goes into detail about how weight should be distributed in the positions which will only set you up for success and prevent you from being swept. These little details and nuances are often overlooked in most BJJ training DVDs. He starts off in the top of the closed guard and shows the basic knee in the tailbone escape. He progresses onto how to pass the guard and I particularly liked his set ups for the bull fighter pass and the knee cut pass.
Once you pass the guard he covers how to properly consolidate a strong side control and starts going into some of the finishes such as the straight arm lock. He continues to cover the mount position and covers some basic finishes from the mount like the Ezekiel choke and the arm bar. The Ezekiel choke is one of the best chokes for white belts to learn because not only is it really simple and easy to understand, It also is a high rate submission that can be done from almost every position.
After the mount he goes into the top turtle position and how to take the back. This is the only section in this DVD I didn’t like because I think he could’ve chose different back takes that might be easier to learn, My favorite set up from the back he shows is how to get a finish an armbar. This particular set up is crucial to have in your toolbox because people are so used to defending the choke that they often will give up the arm without realizing it.
