By Budo Jake February 18, 2014 3272 Views No comments

You know you've made your mark on the BJJ world if you have a move named after you. I'm not talking about some random submission, but a move that has become a fundamental part of the art. The De La Riva guard is a position that you'll see over and over nowadays. Competitors like the Mendes Brothers, Samuel Braga, Michael Langhi, Keenan Cornelius, Cobrinha and countless others rely on this guard. I've never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. De La Riva as he rarely comes to the states, but I sent a few quesitons down to my friend Lineu Oliveira who conducted the interview. Read, learn, and appreciate one of the legends of BJJ - Ricardo De La Riva - Carlson Gracie black belt, great competitor & instructor, and creator of the De La Riva guard!

I'm often one of the lighter guys on the mats. Weighing under 150 lbs, I'm often rolling with guys that weight 20 - 50lbs more than I do. This provides a unique challenge for us (smaller guys).  

Training with heavier guys can be very helpful but can also be dangerous. In this multi-part series, I'm going to talk share tips from some of the best light guys in the BJJ world to help you - the smaller BJJ athlete - survive and do better when dealing with opponents and training partners who outweigh you.
