Review of Jacare’s BJJ Instructional

JacareInstructional Review of Jacares BJJ Instructional

I’ve had this set for awhile now but it wasn’t until recently that I actually sat down and watched it all. I wish I had done so earlier since there is a lot of great technique on it.

The instructional is split into four parts, which include takedowns, guard passes, submissions, and sweeps. Some of the techniques are even demonstrated in competition or against some resistance.  Also here and there, Jacare focuses on why he uses certain grips rather than others.

One thing is note is that Jacare does the explanation in Portuguese, while a voice-over is done over that in English. it is still easy to understand what’s being explained though

For me, the most interesting things were the grips he was using in multiple positions and how smooth his weight distribution was throughout the movements. Altogether, it’s great material to study.
