“At first repetition is what counts. I teach my students to repeat
the moves to exhaustion, until it enters their subconscious and
they therefore can apply them automatically, without thinking.
Later on, once the combat situations have become complex I try
and stimulate them to be creative.”
Master Carlos Gracie Jr.
