A product review – Brandon Quick’s Fade to Black

One of the first things I posted here on was a profile I did of Brandon “Never Quit” Quick, one of the leading no gi BJJ instructors and trainers out there. I first got into contact with Brandon when he was still with 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu and we have stayed in contact since he cut ties with 10th Planet to focus on his own school, Trinity Combat Academy.

One of Brandon’s final projects before he left 10th Planet was releasing Fade to Black, a three-DVD instructional set on chokes, specifically gators, darce chokes, Peruvian neckties, reverse arm triangles, arm triangles and guillotines. The cover of the set proclaims it to be “The most comprehensive instructional DVD set on no gi chokes ever produced,” and quite simply, it’s right.

Over three DVDs, Quick demonstrates numerous setups to these choke from various positions, and even throws in a lot of good defensive techniques. Simply put, this set is an excellent choice for anyone looking to step up his or her choke game, whether it be for BJJ or MMA.
