In the wake of all major UFC shows the head instructors of the Gracie Academy, Rener and Ryron Gracie, publish a video breaking down all the jiu jitsu related action. And while UFC 145 did not have a plethora of highlight reel grappling moments, the Gracies did issue a video highlighting a few key details.
The focus of the video is on the crucifix position as both Rory MacDonald and Matt Brown used the position to great affect in their fights. Rener and Ryron cover the setting up crucifix from the top, escapes for the man on bottom, common mistakes from the position and they even cover a few tips on how to finish that inverted triangle that Brown used on Stephen Thompson.
After the breakdown there is also a give away contest and ad for a new Gracie DVD for adapting gi chokes for normal street clothing.
