Brad that could be possibly the greatest BJJ pose / action sequence I have ever seen!

The guys in brads video looked like real bjj fighters (except for a couple of silly locks) and would probably eat the guy in the first video alive IMHO. It was just way to rigid and staged and the way the students tapped was ether an indication that the instructor had very little control or that they where inserting even more drama. After training with Rickson for 4 years I never saw any displays of arial silliness just calm smooth application of the art.

You trained with Rickson for 4 years... awesome!!!!!!!!

I'm slowly getting back into the game. Been lazy for the past two years, only training once each week. This brown belt will never get darker unless I put the time in.

Rickson... you lucky ducky.

(no disrespect to my coach, he's the shiznit)

Both of you guys are lucky. Brad are you still training with Roy Harris? I have his BJJ 101 series and have enjoyed it immensely. In fact someone on here recommended it to me.

I train under Marcio Simas at Gracie Barra Orlando. Great school and really great instructors.
