Rickson Gracie “Choke” is more than just a fight video – it captures the anxiety, preparation, and visceral intensity behind the competitors as they prepare for competition.
View at the Ultimate Fighting Championship with a much deeper background.
The video captures the preparation for, and competition in Vale Tudo Japan 1995, a mixed martial arts competition where almost anything goes.
(“Vale Tudo” is Portuguese for “Anything Goes”, but the rules are not quite that extreme.)The video takes an in depth look at 3 of the participants.
1 – Todd Hays is an all around gifted athlete, with a background in kickboxing.
His mixture and fear are apparent as he attempts to use this event to pay for his Olympic bobsleading dreams.
2 – Koichiro Kimura is a Japanese amateur shootfighting champion, who wants nothing more than to test himself against the best.
You get to meet his parents, who are affraid he’ll die in the ring.
3 – Rickson Gracie is the defending champion, as well as the best of the famous Gracie family.
It’s no suprise that he gets the lion’s share of the publicity.
In addition to the gritty reality of the fighting, you’re introduced to some humorous back scene footage: Rickson’s desire for a belt in addition to a trophy brings some chuckles, as does his last minute desire to hit the restroom.
A near blind Yuki Nakai is both valiant and funny when he screams, “Rickson, I’m coming for you!”If you’re looking for a technique video, this is not it.
If you’re looking for 2 hours of fighting from the best guys out there today, again this is not the video.
If you’re looking to understand the mind of the fighter, in the context of the ring, this is the only DVD out there.
I was rivited from start to finish.
