Gene Simco is known to many as the first American author of Brazilian jiu-jitsu books, but few know of his talent as a filmmaker. Gene’s interest in film developed after watching his first DVD series being produced and has been an avid filmmaker ever since. Gene was encouraged by his students to make instructional DVDs, feeling that his personality and live instruction should be captured on film and shared with those who didn’t have the opportunity to train with him in person.
Now, Gene’s DVD Instructionals sell as well as his books and he has expanded to online training videos. He now hosts the largest “eTraining” program on the internet for Brazilian jiu-jitsu at www.jiu-jitsu.net.
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Essential Techniques – 4 DVD Set
This four DVD set was made to follow Gene Simco’s Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Basics book. It was filmed by student and Film Producer, Nicholas Guccione.
We spoke a few years ago just following the attacks of Sept 11 and you made a generous offer to provide training for my team at 5TH Special Forces Group and sent us additional copies of your 1st book. Since then I have encouraged my students and members of my Association to buy and read your books especially the Master Text. I just recently purchased your DVD series "Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Essential Techniques". I wanted to tell you what an excellent training reference I think your DVDs are. The techniques and presentation is excellent and exemplifies the principles we endorse as critical in the military combatives training of our Special Operators." -- Randy McElwee, Director Special Operations Combative Arts Association
"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. Nelson J. Ortiz, Columbia, MD"
Self Defense Made Easy (2 volumes) – DVD
Produced and edited by Gene, this was his first film project.It is intended for beginners or jiu-jitsu students who are interested in becoming better at self defense without taking away time for training. This series is very interesting to watch as three to four cameras are used, giving the viewer unparalleled detail.
No Rules Brazilian Jiu-jitsu – 4 DVD Set
This four disc set was made for readers who had purchased Gene’s no Rules book and wanted to take it a few steps further. This set was produced and edited by Gene and contains many techniques not seen in other series. It is also unique due to the fact that all the moves shown are designed for street fighting on hard surfaces and with absolutely no rules, which is rare in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu instructionals.
"I am a veteran Police Officer with 23 years of experience in a major city in the North east. I am currently assigned to their Emergency Service Unit which performs a SWAT function for the city. I routinely handle high risk warrant service, violent felons, emotionally disturbed persons, barricaded gunmen and hostage takers. I have found that for me Gene Simco's No Rules BJJ: Street Effective Groundfighting series is a practical, pragmatic approach to functionalizing your bjj skills for non-mat friendly environments. The organization and presentation of the material is clear and progressive, easily assimilated by both the beginner and advanced practitioner looking to transition his or her skills from the mat to the street. Focus is also given to developing a street guard as well as beating the guard which presents a sizable amount of problems for the uninitiated. The dvd set offers any level practitioner enough variation, detail and ideas that can be successfully integrated into their own every day practice."

Mastering Brazilian Jiu-jitsu – The Master Text 8 DVD Set
When Gene made this series, he set out to produce the most complete and well organized DVD sets money could buy. He wanted it to reflect the pattern and organization of his award winning master Text. Done. What separates this set from others is that it covers all aspects of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu practice; Sport with the Gi, MMA (vale tudo) and Submission Grappling are all covered in amazing detail.
Much like The Master Text, Gene retains control of this product personally and only allows it to be sold at selected retailers. You can purchase it at www.jiu-jitsu.net.
