Rickson Gracie To Release First Ever Video Technique Instructional

Rickson Gracie has said that the reason why he has never released a video instructional is that his Jiu-Jitsu which is based on weight distribution which he calls ‘invisible’, needs to be felt and cannot be learned as well on film.

He told Grappling central podcast:

Rickson Gracie: Man, how you going to explain the taste of wine for somebody who never try it or never see it? It’s hard…

The invisible aspect of jiu-jitsu for me by far the greatest and the most interesting. Because it is not based on what I see it. It is based on how I feel it. That’s why it is invisible. It’s not about seeing. You may see the same guard position, but you feel different if you put pressure here, if you lie a little more here. So the invisible results are the ones that really please me because they are the ones that I really deeply felt you know?


Most of his Jiu-Jitsu is shown online or on video by his students: Pedro Sauer and Henry Akins.
Rickson usually doesn’t even allow any filming at his seminars.
In 2015, Rickson showed a few techniques on Budovideos and the Jiu-Jitsu community responded with a frenzy:

Once in a while some footage appears of him teaching:
