DVD review - Escapes from anywhere by Bernardo Faria

Summary – a comprehensive four DVD set, packed with techniques designed to get you out of the stickiest of situations
In the world of BJJ instructionals, there are thousands of sets covering all aspects of the Jiu Jitsu game, from closed to open guard and all their combinations; guard passing from every position, side control attacks and defences, submissions and many more.  There is a huge market out there for these DVD’s, with new releases coming out thick and fast every month.

With regards to escaping all these situations and positions, there does not seem to be that many on the market; way back in 2006 I reviewed a DVD release from black belt Gustavo Machado, titled ‘The Great escapes and Counters’ and since then DVD’s like this have been pretty thin on the ground.

Fast forward to the present day and black belt Bernardo Faria redresses this issue with a whopping four DVD set, covering, as the title suggests, escapes from anywhere and you won’t be disappointed. 

Discs 1,2 and 3 have twelve chapters and disc 4 thirteen chapters and cover positions such as mount escape principles and escapes; side control  and north/south escapes; kimura escapes; arm bar and omoplata escapes; back escapes; submission escapes and much more.

This DVD set is ideal for students and instructors alike and can be used for reference points for the instructor, as Bernardo crams a lot of technical instruction into each chapter and is great for an injured student who wants to stay in the BJJ loop, where they can be sat at home on the couch, watching the techniques and absorbing the technical details from Bernardo.

This is a great DVD set to add to your ever expanding collection, ideal for a rainy day or an injured day – available from www.bjjsuperdeals.com
