    The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu self Defense Techniques by Royce and Charles Gracie

    Royce Gracie parties with Marc Coleman, Igor Vovchanchin, Rickson, Royler, Charles, Ken Shamrock, Kid P, and you.

    Perhaps your next after party should include the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Self Defense Techniques by Royce and Charles Gracie.

    Many people who have never trained have heard of Royce or seen one of his UFC victories. Which is what makes this not only an effective self defense manual, but a nice coffee table book, as well.

    While the uninitiated may at first be reluctant to toss off their shoes and jump in your guard; wrist locks, escapes, and disarms are an easy way to begin. And, who better to introduce one of the greatest self defense systems than Royce Gracie - and youself?

    Strategically placed, your friends will find the book with Royce and Charles challenging them from the cover, and flip through it's pages as if viewing a silent video.

    Start slowly by talking about how Royce owned the UFC. His physical presence, his hair-raising escapes, and overcoming of impossible odds, gave his fighting style the appearance of truth itself. He made martial arts look like it should - a super power.

    Next, show a technique you prepared earlier in the evening, position 218 for example, the Arm Push. Point out how Charles counters the grip Royce has on his cousin's elbow. Mention the importance of having your arm under your opponent's arm. Here might be a good opportunity to bring up the concept of range in combat, as Charles follows with an elbow strike to the head.

    Do not demonstrate this part. That is what the color pictures are for. Instead, flow into a discussion of the importance of kuzushi as a prerequisite for a throw.

    Keep your movements gentle, but strong, confident, aristocratic even, like the master himself. Your steps should be light, and breathing natural. As your guests begin to see this less as athletic conditioning and more as a game, something they not only can comprehend but do as well, point to the pictures of Royce surrounded by family to stress the wholesomeness.

    Once you have gained your partner's trust you can begin to show other related moves, building to your ultimate goal - triangle drills.

    Royce continues to associate himself with things of the highest quality as the book is slick, colorful, professionally designed and printed. The image Royce has created will continue to draw new people into the art, and when they come the Gracies will be ready.

    So, clean up your room, get two turntables with a mixing board, along with this book of course, and you'll be ready too.

    It's The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Self Defense Techniques, what the civilized host is serving this season.
