Reflex Development Drill™   
We use Technical Slices™ to break down and simplify the techniques, and we use the Reflex Development Drills™ to put them back together. Each lesson features one RDD in which the all the variations of the newly learned technique are practiced in combination with all variations of one or two previously learned techniques.

In this sample video you will be watching the Reflex Development Drill featured in the middle of Lesson 19. In this RDD you will be instructed to practice all variations of the newly learned Straight Armlock from the guard (Lesson 19) in combination with all variations of the previously learned Elbow Escape from the mount (Lesson 12).

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.
