    BJJ Instructional Videos

    I am a 3 strip blue belt and I am looking to get one or two video series as a complement to my training. The ones I am looking at are


    Tellas: Turles and octipus
    Saulo ribeiro: BJJ Revolution
    Marcelo Garcia

    I have been working on both the turtle guard and alot of stuff I see marcelo garcia doing (X-guard, arm drag...ect...). I was wondering what peoples thoughts were on these videos. I know they are 100.00 plus but i am willing to pay. Like I said I am looking for something that could help me develop some new series. If I go with the garcia video, which one there are 4 and their descriptions are very similar. Also I don't know that much about the Saulo videos. Are they very basic?

    There are threads discussing the Telles and Garcia series in the DHS forum somewhere (probably better to use the search function) that'll give you some idea. Also, buy the DVDs through shops on eBay. You'll get them for $80-90 rather than $125 or whatever ridiculous price being charged.

    Be sure to check out YouTube. There are a lot of clips from both sets there they'll let you know what kind of material is on the DVDs.

    I'd recommend Marcelo and Saulo.

    but thats because Marcelo is the man when it comes to taking the back, and i'm a Saulo nutrider (FOR GOOD REASON)

    But, do some research, look on youtube, like raz said

    This is a great page for BBJ vid reviews

    I have Saulo's REvolution 1 and 2 dvd's, both very good, intermediate to advanced. I also recommend the dvd's from:

    Carlos Machado
    Braulio Estima
    Cesar Gracie
    Roy Harris

    I can definitely recommend the turtle guard. He shows shows lots of good stuff and has a great section on using the turtle guard to get ankle picks as well as using the concept of going to turtle to recover guard.

    The Marcelo DVD I got (don't remember what volume, he mentions the 2003 Abu Dabi a lot so it's probably his older series) where he shows different ways to perform the same technique throughout all the videos.

    Right now, I'm watching the Demian Maia which is really good. He really breaks BJJ down into a science which has helped me a lot in the little time I've worked on stuff.

    I have the Turtle Guard DVD too. I really liked it even though I only got through the first disk (the guy I was working through it with left).

    Out of those three....I'd go with Saulo more "Advanced Basics" then the others.

    I vote for Telles on Turtle/Octopus Guard. Everyone ends up in turtle guard sooner or later but no one really knows what to do from there. At our academy they teach us a lot about attacking the turtle, but so far very little on what you can do from there.

    It's one of the reasons I recommend it over the other ones. I find that this position is often more neglected then takedowns in BJJ. Offensive attacks against this position are commonplace but offensive and defense measures FROM this position are almost always overlooked.
