    interview at the end was awesome. Really an inspiration to stick to what i'm thought instead of going out and searching millions of instructionals that overcomplicate things

    Exactly. Personally as funny as it sounds, that decision was the biggest turning point in my game.

    That's why i am all :eek3::eek3: at this video. I admittedly do not know a ton about Roger or BJJ compared to most but he appears to be dominating with stuff i learned in the first 6 months of jiu jitsu. Just incredibly sharp technique.

    That's what seems the most impressive about it to me. It's just another reason to keep on drilling the things you learn really early on into the ground.

    smashing somebodys fancy guard with the good ol' knee through is way more satisfying than some crazy move that requires 20 steps.

    If Roger went 100% he would destroy Rickson.

    i'm pretty sure. My coach trained with Rickson and he said technically he's the shit but when they rolled his speed and strength gave him that edge.

    I saw Rickson train a little with some really, really, really good guys. He's fucking 50 years old for christ sake.

    :hsugh: to the remark about him being good because he's strong, not you.

    no what i meant is that my coach was able to beat him because he had the technique and the speed and strength. Rickson has technique but is 50 years old like you said, he's not some superhuman grappler
