It is unfortunate that many skilled martial artists lack the ability to convey their knowledge to others. Teaching martial arts requires a skill bank that only a few talented individuals possess. Gene Simco is one of those rare individuals. After watching Gene Simco's Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Basics DVD, I knew that he was more than a skilled practitioner. Gene's DVDs provide definitive instruction that incorporates effective researched based teaching principles. In addition, he makes the viewer feel comfortable and and quite capable of learning the material he demonstrates. His sound detailed explanations reinforce the techniques that he describes. It is quite apparent that Gene cares about the the quality of his product and you the viewer/student. As a school district administrator and a martial arts instructor with over thirty years of experience, it is a pleasure to recommend Gene Simco's DVDs to all martial artists that want to enhance their understanding of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

Gene Simco has unparalleled teaching skills and the athleticism to demonstrate the many and varied techniques of Jiu-Jitsu. An elite master of this martial art, his insight into the nuances and variations of the moves is truly astounding. We use his videos to supplement our hands on practice of takedown and grappling techniques.

Hi Gene,
I just had to send you a very quick note thanking you for creating such a superb instructional book as 'Mastering BJJ - The essential techniques'. I have only recently started out in BJJ (Only 3 classes so far), but I'm really loving it. I was fortunate enough to train in Judo for around 11 yrs and got to a pretty good standard, but always felt like I'd be at risk if ever the need arose for street defense. BJJ is proving to be the next step I have been craving for 10 yrs or so. I received the book last week and have read it cover to cover 5 times and truthfully cannot put it down. I have purposely ignored the finishing moves for the time being as I would like to get my positional game up to speed and under control first (as there seem to be so many escapes and moves to be learnt). The accompanying DVD is in a class of it's own and your teaching style a pleasure to watch. It has focused me even more to succeed in BJJ and hopefully, some years down the line, I'll be swapping the 'Essential techniques' for the 'Master text'.

Many many thanks,

Drew Hopkinson.
