Many of us who train Brazilian jiu jitsu have heard stories from the OGs who, following UFC 1 in 1993 had to learn new techniques and expand their games using VHS tapes and magazines. They had to wait around for months watching the mailbox for new content. With Gallerr, the wait is over.
I recently spoke with Gallerr developer Thiago Nascimento, a native of
Ponta Grossa, Brazil who now splits his time between Rio de Janeiro and the BJJ scene in Irvine, California. He is a Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt who began his martial arts training as a child. He recalled,”I started in Judo at school when I was 7 years old. In 2000, I was very excited about MMA (vale-tudo in the past) and wanted to learn something about jiu jitsu. From the first moment of my very first class, I fell in love; so many positions, options, and techniques that I’d never seen in Judo. So I decided to dedicate myself and began training with professor Alexandre Dechandt at Gracie Barra Ponta Grossa.”

I’ve been using Gallerr for a couple of months now and so far, I’m loving it. The developer’s exclusive productions are with elite athletes who are actively competing on the world stage today as well as seasoned practioners who have honed their skills over decades of dedication. In addition to videos featuring just one or two techniques, Gallerr developers have also filmed and shared seminars from events like the IBJJF World Masters Jiu Jitsu Championships; if you’ve never attended, I highly recommend watching the seminars of legends like Leo Viera and Xande Ribiero. Overall, the experience is nothing less than exceptional. I am very excited to see how this website grows as more athletes and content providers get on board.
Stay tuned for part two of this article, where I outline and follow Gallerr’s guidelines to developing high quality instructional BJJ videos and publish my own content. In the meantime, be sure to sign up for your own Gallerr account and follow Thiago Nascimento and me, Sally Arsenault, so you don’t miss it!
