Here is some more information about the Gracie Combatives course:

The Course

Although Gracie Jiu-Jitsu consists of more than 600 techniques, studies of the fights conducted by members of the Gracie Family show that 36 techniques have been used more often, and with greater success, than all the other techniques combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, Gracie Combatives is the only course that is entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques. Until recently, this course was taught exclusively at a small network of Gracie Academy certified training centers, but now, the complete Gracie Combatives course is available on DVD and can be learned from the comfort of your own home!

The Objective

What makes the Gracie Combatives collection so unique is that it is the only instructional DVD series ever produced with the sole objective of taking the viewer - regardless of their age, gender or athletic ability - from no knowledge to street ready without ever stepping foot into a school of martial arts. Every other instructional video series to date was designed to give viewers additional techniques and tips to complement the training they were receiving at an actual school of martial arts, whereas the entire Gracie Combatives series was produced under the assumption that the viewer had absolutely no previous experience.

Dynamic Reflex Development

What separates Gracie Combatives from other martial arts instructional DVDs is a revolutionary teaching system called Dynamic Reflex Development™. Although there are thousands of martial arts instructional DVDs in existence that show the viewers how to do various techniques, up until now, there has never been an instructional series that gives the viewers the exact system they must follow to develop their reflexes in the execution of all the techniques in combination with one another. In each Gracie Combatives lesson, the new technique is first presented to you in the form of simplified drills, or Technical Slices™. Then, it is combined with one other technique in a Reflex Development Drill™. Finally, at the end of each lesson, you will learn how to execute the newly learned technique in the context of a real fight by combining it with several other techniques in a Fight Simulation Drill™.

The Blue Belt Qualification Test

Gracie Combatives is the most comprehensive instructional series ever produced by the Gracie Family. Comprised of 13 DVDs and over 18 hours of instruction, this collection features every detail of every technique that must be mastered before one is considered for blue belt. On the 13th DVD of the collection, you will find a complete demonstration of the Blue Belt Qualification Test that one must pass to qualify for promotion (this is the exact same test that students take for promotion at the Gracie Academy). Once you become extremely proficient in the execution of the five Blue Belt Qualification Drills (BBQDs), you are invited to test for promotion at any Certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Training Center. If you do not live near an accredited school, you can also test for promotion using the revolutionary Gracie Video Evaluation Process. Through this process, you will digitally record your performance of the five BBQDs, and then upload the videos to the Internet at Your videos will be viewed by a Gracie Academy instructor and if you meet Gracie Academy standards, your name will be added to the list of Certified Belt Holders and we will mail you an official Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belt!
