Mendesbros online training review (MB Online)


As a Christmas gift this year, I got a subscription to Mendesbros.com online training program. I had been contemplating buying a subscription myself, since I've started to play around a little with reverse DLR and leg drags. The simple inspiration to try these techniques out was born because I've noticed how succesful they are against me.

For me there are not many complete techniques I haven't seen before but a lot of details and concepts that are new to me. A good example would be how in a basic armbar from guard Rafa pushes the opponent's elbow to his chest with his palm before pulling the arm with both hand to the center line. This small detail helps to off-balance the opponent and get the arm to the center.

A glimpse inside:


Although the brothers came into the spotlight with their fancy sporty techniques such as the berimbolo and the 50/50 guard, they also have a strong foundation in basics which they are teaching on the site. The brothers are firm believers of certain basic concepts such as "posture is everything" and "toes on the mat while passing" in order to stay agile and give more pressure.

It seems that every other technique on the site is fairly basic and every other is advanced. Also, the fact that they cover basics and concepts means that even if you're "game" is nothing like the Mendes', you would most likely get some benefit from watching the videos

If you compare the Mendes site with the pioneer of online BJJ which is  Marcelo Garcia's MGInaction, you see the two sites have a lot of similarities and some differences:
  • They both mostly teach the specific game of the athlete(s) in question. I would say that the Mendes brothers' game has more variation to it than Marcelo's though. And of course there are 2 brothers, whose games (believe it or not) is not identical.
  • Mendes brothers teach more classic fundamentals on the site such as closed guard techniques and cross chokes from mount. Marcelo often has an assistant instructor showing the more basic stuff or to be more precise, the stuff not in the heart of his own game.
  • Marcelo has slightly more footage coming in every week, especially sparring footage. However, the Mendes brothers spend more time explaining details which make their videos slightly longer.
  • Marcelo's sparring vids have tags on what techniques will be performed in that roll so you can search sparring videos that have the technique you are trying to learn.
  • It takes a relatively long time to download a video on both sites. This is probably a very common issues with these heavy sites.
  • Both sites cost 25 USD a month with discounts if you pay for a longer period
Overall, both sites are very good with instructionals on techniques that are hard to find from anywhere else.

If you want to check what videos are currently uploaded you can just go to mendesbros.com and click on "view inside". There are also some sample videos from the site on the Mendes bros Youtube channel.

A few samples:

  17. It is currently positioned, alongside the more recently introduced Java, as the language for programming SAP’s Web Application Server, part of its NetWeaver platform for building business applications. Its syntax is somewhat similar to COBOL.

  18. It was also intended to be used by SAP customers to

    enhance SAP applications – customers can develop custom reports and interfaces with ABAP programming.The language is fairly easy to learn for

    programmers but it is not a tool for direct use by non-programmers. Good programming skills, including knowledge of relational database design and

    preferably also of object-oriented concepts, are required to create ABAP programs.
