Rickson & Royler Gracie showcase what jiujitsu is

Royler is coming to London next weekend (Sunday 15th March for a seminar at his black belt Eddie Kone's academy, 1-4 pm) email  info@ekbjj.com  For details.
"What do you do at the gym?" 
"Gracie jiujitsu"
"What's that? Is that like karate?"

As jiujitsu practitioners, we have this conversation countless times. My friend Don and I have discussed the best strategy to answer this question, several times. The best we've come up with is to show them this particular video of masters Rickson and Royler Gracie demonstrating the full repertoire of Gracie jiujitsu in Japan. 

I believe the main strength of this video is that, as the presenters say, Rickson and Royler are so incredibly smooth in their performance and that the techniques can indeed be mastered by any one. 

A video on berimbolos or the rubber guard, impressive as these are, wouldn't have the same visceral effect on the average Joe. 

What's your go to video to showcase jiujitsu?
