Renzo Gracie's guillotine details finally revealed

Celebrating Pride FC's 20 years

On October 11th, 1997, over 40,000 people went to Tokyo Dome to witness the debut of the promotion that is still considered by many the best MMA show ever produced – Pride FC.

We caught up with Renzo Gracie and recorded a video series in which the legend goes over the 20th anniversary of Pride and remembers how he had an experience inside the ring that would change forever the way a classic technique called the guillotine is applied.

In this first video, Renzo tells the story of the first MMA event to reach so many people, and how he dealt with the frustration of setting one of his favorite submission holds, only to see his opponent get out of it.

Wait a moment: here we encourage you to keep watching to learn the guillotine, but, before that, go to and sign-up for "Renzo Gracie, Mastering Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu" with 50% off.
