There aren’t many recordings out there of lessons taught by Ryan Gracie, the fearless BJJ and MMA competitor who died an early death. But our team has dug into the ol’ chest to bring you an exclusive lesson.
In December 2004, Ryan welcomed Graciemag into his São Paulo gym and revealed the secrets to his powerful guillotine. Note how he used to adjust the position by controlling the wrist of the hand that catches his opponent’s neck.
World champion Gabriel Vella helped out in this lesson. A true gem from the Graciemag archives that’s now available to enrich your jiu-jitsu. Enjoy it in the following video — no Portuguese needed.
