Fight Simulation Drill™   
Developing your reflexes in the execution of the individual techniques is one thing, learning how to execute them in every possible combination is another, and that is what the Fight Simulation Drills are for. Starting at Lesson 3, each lesson also contains a Fight Simulation Drill in which the newly learned technique is included in carefully scripted exercise along with 6-8 previously learned techniques. Each FSD was carefully designed to simulate a sequence of events that is very likely to occur in a real fight, and perfecting them is the key to developing reflexes that will serve you in combat.

In this sample video you will be watching the Fight Simulation Drill featured at the end of Lesson 25. In this FSD you will learn how to execute the newly learned Forced Variation of the Kimura Armlock in a carefully scripted sequence along with six previously learned techniques.

Watching this FSD should, above all else, highlight the importance of completing the 36 Gracie Combatives lessons in the prescribed sequence. Any attempt to complete the lessons out of order will lead to confusion during the FSDs, since your success with these drills is entirely contingent on your mastery of all the previously learned techniques. Also, to optimize learning, and to best prepare you for the Blue Belt Qualification Test, we strongly encourage you to only proceed from one lesson to the next once you are absolutely comfortable with all aspects of the previous one.

Although you will be able to view the sample video without logging in, some of the lessons features are interactive and will require you to log in to your Gracie University student profile. If you are not a Gracie University student, please click here to sign up for free.

Ryron and Rener Gracie
  Ryron and Rener Gracie are the eldest grandsons of Grand Master Helio Gracie, the creator of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Their father is Rorion Gracie, one of the world’s foremost experts in self-defense. In 1993, Rorion created the Ultimate Fighting Championship to showcase the supremacy of the family’s self-defense system in a realistic “no holds barred” confrontation against all comers. Rorion’s younger brother, Royce, won 3 of the first 4 UFC tournaments proving that the leverage-based techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu provided the most reliable way to defeat a larger, more athletic opponent. Ryron and Rener were born into this family tradition of testing the art against all challengers.
