I found myself laughing more than I was paying attention, I had to go back and watch it a few times to get past it.

The BJJ DVD from Gene Simco is great for beginners' students who don't have the time to train all the time and no time for private classes.
R. Ramos
Looking at the description and video preview for this DVD at the producers' website, this set seems to be one and the same.

The BJJ DVD from Gene Simco is great for beginners' students who don't have the time to train all the time and no time for private classes. With this DVD you can take the time to review step by step to see how the positions work - also, what I like a lot about this video is that Simco details each technique (Attack Order, Pressure, Angles, Tightness, Application, Timing,) with great explanation, making each movement easy to understand.

I was highly impressed with his ability to explain key points that stuck with me as I hit the mat and for any bjj student, to come home after a hard night rolling and pick up this DVD will certainly improve your game and help piece together the parts of your jiu jitsu puzzle. This DVD is sure to add to your game...

Anything by this man is good.

Gene Simco is a genius at teaching the grappling arts!!!!!

Watching it I felt as though he was teaching me personally. I am not kidding about what I am about to say,.........I sat there and mouthed out loud questions that a few seconds later he answered. What I am trying to say is that he is so in touch with what the student's queries because he keeps in touch with the student within himself.

This man is a true teacher and a great grappler. If you are interested in grappling, this is the DVD for you.

You cannot lose!!!!!!

I found this to be a great instructional DVD. The techniques he showed were not unlike other DVD's, however with each technique he shows a slight twist here or angle change there that can mean the difference between a really tight inescapable lock to a loose one. These small differrences make a big differrence.
The only negative thing I would say is he waffles on a bit. He introduces too many concepts while trying to demonstrate the basic technique. It would be easier to grasp if the basic technique was introduced first, then show the finer points and variations of the basic. It leaves you thinking "come on, get on with it" a lot. But the actual techniques are great.

This product was a steal for the price! I ordered the Gracie method, which is excellent, but I think they spend too much time going over the "fine details" of each move on that video series---it is so drawn out it gets boring to watch! This video is right to the point. The moves are clearly demonstrated, but there isn't so much talking and they don't do the same thing over and over so many times (isn't that what a rewind button is for?). If you master all the moves on this video, you could probably at least be ready for the blue belt test in jiu jitsu at most schools. They do a drill alternating between the triangle choke, arm bar, etc. (3 moves---can't spell the 3rd one!)---my teacher surprised us all by throwing that very drill on our belt test...I was ready for it because of these videos (we never did it in class). I would definitely buy the intermediate/advanced videos if/when available. I hope this helps.

Gene Simco's two-disc DVD is an excellent 'how-to' introductory course for beginners in the art of submission fighting. This can be a quality vehicle in doing homework between classes and may even give you an edge in preparing for classes or competition. Simco has a great teaching style and takes his time in demonstrating the holds, takedowns, escapes and grappling sequences from a variety of angles. He packs more information into this 200-minute DVD than many instructors cover in three months of classes.

Intermediate fighters will also find this useful for review and even exploring topics that may have been briefly discussed or overlooked. For advanced fighters, there is little more than review except for the end of Disc Two where some good tips are available in 'chain' techniques and ground maneuvering.

Again, students from beginner to intermediate will benefit from this high quality course offered at a bargain price.

The instruction that Gene Simco gives is very good, but this product is not what is advertised. I too am missing DVD 1. The cover shows moves being done on DVD 1, and it isn't even included! The remaining 90 minutes on DVD 2 is excellent.

I think that this DVD is not about Ultimate Winning Techniques, it is more about Beginner MMA information. If you really want to learn MMA go to a local MMA training complex. If you have never been, this DVD can help you in getting a step up on some of the basics before taking classes.

With that said, it is easy to understand and follow along on the DVD. Simco goes over information slowly, but that is what you want to pound it in your head and understand the movements. Good for beginners, and if you are wondering whether you would like to take the next step and join MMA classes and learn some defense. It is also cheap. I think I am going to make my next investment in Mario Sperry's Vale Tudo 3.

This DVD (3) to be exact has some good points and intruction, its just cheaply made and the intructor is one of the worst sites on camera. I could have made a better production with a retro 80's camera and a VHS player on EP mode, just rubbish. I found myself laughing more than I was paying attention, I had to go back and watch it a few times to get past it. I would recommend the BJ Penn MMA book on here, at least that won't have you laughing.
