Pro MMA Now Product Review: Boxing for MMA with Anderson Silva

Instructional materials for MMA are often lacking. Whether it be a failure to have a well-known fighter or instructor to help with the materials, or a failure to accurately translate such physical techniques to print form, the bottom line is that many instructional materials lack true usefulness for people training MMA on any level.

A ProMMA.info product review – Brandon Quick’s Fade to Black

One of the first things I posted here on ProMMA.info 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.

Gracie Combatives – a PROMMA.INFO product review

Order Gracie Combatives or learn more at www.graciecombatives.com.

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Ryron Gracie at the Hope of Mother Charity event. Ryron and his brother Rener are close friends to Tareq Azim and came out to show his support.

In talking with the son of Rorion Gracie (UFC founder and creator), the discussion quickly shifted to the focus of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Ryron and his family believe, and rightfully so, that the focus of BJJ schools are on competition and not self defense.

“There is no point in learning the half guard if you cannot escape a headlock.” This was the motivation in Ryron and Rener in creating the Gracie Combatives DVD’s. They wanted to spread the word and ideals that was taught to them by their grandfather, Grandmaster Helio Gracie.
