I put this on my luta livre thread but thought I put it here also, I’m selling a few doubles I have, to clear some room for more stuff.This is a rare book. Google it. $120 for both the master text and the submission essentials book helio did with royler. I’m putting it on a bookseller if no one here wants it.

That's a good deal. I remember the master text being $120 like ten years back

I found a copy in my local library and lost it only to find it a couple years later in one of my kids boxes. Paid like $90 to the library for it at that time

Some nut is asking a grand for his on amazon. Daft bugger. I got this one along with galvao and a couple other books in a package, so would rather it go to someone here at a decent price who’s passionate about bjj than try to gouge some tufnewb on amazon or abe . How’s the Rickson Merseyside tuxedo working out

Lol holy shit I bet he'll get the thousand dollars for it sooner or later. If he does, I'll have to go find mine and sell it on there too

The tux is a little snug on my post covid body but my oldest son sports it on brisk walks around the neighborhood

Mad as a hatter, yesterday he was asking somewhere around $450, so it more than doubled overnight. Maybe someday he’ll find someone with more money than sense and unload it. I hope your boy can handle the power of the rickson warm-up jacket

Why would we need another master text, when Gene Simco already covered that ground perfectly?!?! :P

Gene’s book isn’t really that bad, not bad at all actually

FatBuddha - Good deal.

I could see maybe $500 for one autographed by helio and a whole bunch of other gracies.

I always imagined he was being swept away by a stiff breeze. Cause he was so small and frail, you see.

Actually, my understanding of this photo is that they wheeled Helio's Iron Lung up to the top a little hill, packed it with low-grade explosives and plenty of horsehair padding and literally FIRED him towards Carlos in order to get the photograph.

They then rushed Helio back into the Iron Lung before his little lungs were crushed by gravity.

(This event was also counted as a Vale Tudo "win" in the official Gracie family records).

I see, you think I’m trying to screw someone over, go look what these bring, you fucking douchebag. I’m trying to do someone a favor by offering it at a sensible price, so a kid who would normally not be able to afford a copy, can still acquire one. The fucking submission essentials by itself is going for $70, so in conclusion, go fuck a porcupine,

I have one on my shelf. Didn’t realIze it was out of print.

Always thought it was a potential goldmine of comedy and surprised no one ever used it to create a parody.

There are pic sequences in there like - 1) Rorian pointing a silver pistol at Helio, 2) Helio throwing an elbow, then 3) Helio pointing the silver gun back at Rorian.

Here is a great one on chair attacks:

Go in for the tickle and then hug them and tell them everything will be okay
