To practice Jiu-Jitsu is to seek answers but always leave training pondering new questions.
However, no doubt gnaws at Jiu-Jitsu players more than the one afflicting those looking for more refinement in their games: “How do I sharpen up my attacks and choke holds?”
Ever since Helio Gracie in GRACIEMAG issue 100 explained why “sleep” is Jiu-Jitsu’s most potent move, fans and readers have come to understand its effectiveness, but they lacked a dossier on the subject.
Not anymore. This month, we went after Roger Gracie for the details, concepts, lessons, and teachings that will polish up readers’ neck attacks once and for all and, literally, not give opponents any breathing room.
And GRACIEMAG this month seeks to solve a number of other queries readers may be having as well. Among them:
Why doesn’t Roger like using the rear-naked choke in competition?
What’s the biggest mistake Vitor Belfort made in his career, according to himself?

What were the lessons and substantiations learned by the stars of the IBJJF No-Gi Worlds, like Roberto Cyborg and Pablo Popovitch?
What were the highlights from last month’s gi event, closing out the season in the USA?
