Coming off their 4th World title victory at the BJJ world championships, the Mendes brothers stop by again with two of their world champion students, Rock Slomba and Mason Monsevais. The guys talk about their championship run as well as a break down of most of the adult black belt finals.
The International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation is always looking for ways to clarify, update, and improve the rulest for IBJJF competitions.
Just last week, the IBJJF made some updates to their rules and to elimiate any confusion, we wanted to make a video with the help of an IBJJF referee (Gabriel Costa).
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!
Actor, Mixed Martial Arist, bodybuilder, pro wreslter and now Purple belt, Dave Bautista gets the jump from blue by Cesar Gracie.
Congats to Dave Batista on the purple belt, at least we know that belt is real!
Can you imagine having to compete against him at your next tournament?
And if you want an idea of how Cesar teaches, check out his 6 DVD set; Gi less jiu jitsu
Many who practice BJJ have thought that going to a gym to lift weights would bring about a magical change in their Jiu-jitsu. That in just a few short months, membership at a local “Fitness Center” would be the catalyst that would shoot them up through the belt ranks and have them knocking on the door to Black Belt status.
Last month, Vladislav Koulikov's new instructional series "Sambo Jiu-jitsu Fusion" was released. The set features throws, takedowns, groundwork and leglocks that work GREAT in a BJJ or Submission grappling setting. Those tough Russians know a thing or two about fighting!
