    Not that I'm particularly badly injured now, but I'm sure at some point in the future I will have to have an enforced lay off. What I want to know is, are there any decent DVDs I could watch to keep me inspired/interested, and give my brain a little food for thought while I can't get in and train?

    Just watching endless instructionals would be boring, especially if I can't actually try stuff out. I'm thinking more along the lines of a documentary-type film but with enough technique/theory on display to keep my mind actively stimulated. Any ideas?

    Arte suave is good. By the time you possibly get injured there might be more stuff out too. There's also Jimmy pedros fury on the mat, which is a good watch.

    I think injury layoffs are the perfect time to invest in breaking down and categorizing bjj tournament footage and doing mental training.

    1. Rickson Gracie's "Choke"
    2. Renzo Gracie's "Legacy"
    3. Mario Sperry's "Day of Zen"
    4. Jean Jacques Machado has a couple of documentaries also.
    5. Mark Kerr's "Smashing Machine"
    6. Arte Suave 1/2
    7. Bass Rutten's Career DVD's with his commentary.

    Off the top of my head, those are the ones I can think of. Except for Arte Suave, I don't know if the rest have much technique and theory, but they certainly are interesting.

    Ah, I forgot about Choke and Legacy, both of those are awesome also.

    Oscar de Jiu Jitsu 2 is the best thing to watch when you're on the sidelines. Nothing will make you more eager to get back on the mat than a bunch of old school superfights including guys like Saulo Ribeiro, Vitor Ribeiro, Nino Schembri, Marcio Feitosa, Fabio Gurgel, Royce Gracie, David Camarilo and more.

    Hard to find (I know I won't lend my copy to anybody!). But well worth it if you can get a hold of it.
