BJJ Building Blocks

By Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Discover the basic, fundamental techniques you require to build a powerful game - from the ground up.


Widely regarded as one of the best jiu jitsu instructors in the world, Nic is Roger Gracie’s first black belt and author of the successful book, The Black Belt Blueprint.

He is also the founder of The Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood and was awarded his black belt in just over 4 years.

Nic is known for his holistic and effective approach to jiu jitsu training and his detailed and effective teaching style.


BJJ Building Blocks includes a collection of the most essential jiu jitsu techniques and principles that Nic has discovered and been taught during his study of the art.

Every one of these moves and principles has been through dozens and dozens of hours of testing on the mat. Some of them he learned from directly from his instructor Roger Gracie, some during his travels to train in Brazil and Japan, and others from his sparring partners and contemporaries.

Nic prides himself in teaching only things that he knows to work, for both for himself and his hundreds of students around the world.

Among the things he's going to show you are:

- Vital principles from each of the major positions
- High-percentage submissions
- The simplest and most effective ways to pass the guard
- Powerful sweeps and attacks from the bottom
- Sure-fire ways to escape the frustrating side-mount position
- The most important throws and standing attacks for sport jiu jitsu
- Often overlooked takedowns from the knee-start position
- Defences and counters against the most commonly experienced attacks
- How to break down a strong opponent's posture
- One of the most powerful open-guard attack combinations in jiu jitsu
