An excellent app for anyone who wants to master a number of basic techniques

If you ever wished you had a portable tool for brushing up on your brazilian jiu jitsu sweeps and position changes then this app is your friend.

Sound does not work

My audio will not play for this and the sweeps app. The audio in their BJJ Roadmap works fine for me. I reinstalled the app to try to troubleshoot with no success.

A must buy!

Huge fan of GrappleArts! This is bigger in size then the last 3 iPhone apps they had and has great materials in it. No need for internet once you have it installed. Great price while it lasts.
