Remembering the techniques from class can be difficult, especially for the beginner. The Gracie Barra Fundamentals Curriculum 2.0 helps students stay connected to their Jiu-Jitsu training. The techniques are available on the iTunes App Store, for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Now students can take their techniques with them anywhere they go. Having the ability to review the lessons from class will help accelerate the learning process
The Gracie Barra Fundamentals app consists of 16 weeks of training that are divided into 4 series. Each series contains 4 weeks of lessons that are now consolidated into one In-App purchase. Carlos Gracie Jr. and his team developed the new curriculum with feedback and input from hundreds of Gracie Barra Black Belts including Marcio Feitosa, Ricardo Almeida, Nelson Monteiro, Vincius Draculino, Jos Radiola, Eduardo de Lima, Nao Takigawa, Carlos Liberi, Marcelo Rezende, Aparecido Bill, Braulio Estima, Romulo Barral and many others. These lessons are intended to give the beginner a solid foundation in the basics of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and self-defense. Ricardo Almeida is a veteran of the UFC and Pride Fighting Championship and is a 3rd degree BJJ Black Belt. Marcio Feitosa is a 4th degree BJJ Black Belt, an 8 time World Championship finalist, winning 3 gold and 5 silver medals, and a 6 time Pan American Champion. Gracie Barra teamed up with Mobile Black Belt to produce the series. Each technique is filmed from a variety of angles, in slow motion and real time and Marcios voice over explains the key points of each technique.
