Clock Choke by Mario Sperry

I had th great pleasure of doing a private class(with gi) and a No Gi/MMA seminar with Ze Mario last week! Let me tell you, I believe Ze Mario is one of the greatest BJJ/MMA coaches of all time and as great as he was as a fighter, I believe he’s real gift is as a teacher! I will be posting more about the seminar soon but for now I hope you enjoy a clip from the master of the Relogio(clock choke) from one of his instructional dvds available from

Ze Mario and I


Oh and on a side note, Ze Mario’s partner in the video is one of Ze Mario’s top students Fabiano Capoani(who graded me to brown belt in May 2008). Please check back for a lot more from the Zen Machine over the next week! Until then…

Good luck with your training and Happy rolling!

    agreed that he’s one of the greatest bjj/mma coaches of all time. i’ve had the pleasure of training with him before and was humbled to watch other black belts and mma fighters in brasil listening intently to the little details and fine points he was giving them.

    you could see they really respected his opinion. even more so it’s just great that he’s still training as “one of the guys” and learning as well

      In my opinion he’s one of the greatest and most underrated BJJ and MMA coaches of all time! I also have seen him demolish world class balck belts and fighters in the gym both at BTT headquarters in Lagoa and his original Academia Sul in porto Alegre! A beast on the mat but also a quiet and humble guy held in the highest esteem by top BJJ and MMA fighters around the world!
      Kind Regards

    So that’s who I have to thank for the sweep!

      Yes Derek, thanks to Ze it is my new favourite sweep! I think with more drilling it will be super high percentage for you too!
