Rener Gracie Rolling With Hands Tied

Saturday, June 23, 2012


I have heard of and seen the Berimbolo many times online before. It starts out from de la Riva to back take and usually it's one of the Mendes Brothers pulling it off in competition. However, today was the first day a classmate pulled it off on me and now I want to know how to do it and how to defend it.

Video teaching the Berimbolo:
Video teaching the defensive to the Berimbolo:
This counter is sick because you can take their back!

Another counter video:
This one gives you side control.

I guess to learn how to prevent my opponent from Berimbolo-ing me, I have to learn how to defend against de la Riva guard. Hmmm...

Kurt Osiander's Move of the Week - Deep Half-Guard Defense

I always wondered about the defense against the deep half guard.

Kurt shows how to prevent the deep half and turn it into an attack, very sick stuff.
