Check out the video on cfcfighter.com or on you tube via the link on Robson Periera's website and you'll here all about his "power jiu jitsu" and how his students are using this new method to clean up at all the competitions.
According to Periera, his white belts are now beating brown, purple and blue belts all over the place.
Curious considering all info on here indicates he has had some trouble himself with white and blues in the past.
Interested to hear someone elses thoughts.

Just go to cfc.fighter.com and it comes up automatically on the home page. Sorry, not sure how to do the "link" thing.

Well the stand up looked pretty bad, as for the grappling I saw the same choke prolly 6 times with one arm bar.

I sent the video to Carlao of ATT, to see if he knew him. Came back negative. He'll ask Maximus later today if Robson trained under him.

What he failed to mention: all of the whites who won against blues and up were probably wrestling coaches who had worked long enough for two stripes in the system...so, let's say the avg. wrestling coach is RIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE, so, 22 years old. That's 8 years of positional dominance training, coupled with around 6 months of sub training. Now, without seeing the vid of the wins, I'd wager a hefty bet all of the aforementioned wins came from armbar from mount, RNC from backmount, or positional points. I doubt any of them pulled of sweeps or subs from the back against browns.
And that is if I am assuming it was truthfully a two-stripe white that won against browns, and not a sandbagging blue or, worse, purple with many years of both wrestling and BJJ. I mean, I didn't see them practice anywhere harder or even as hard as we do at the VT gym I go to. And we get thrashed in conditioning. The 2 hour format sounds like ours. But believe me, after only 3 months, I will not be beating any browns at tourney. And that's including my other no-gi training to boot, though it was mostly sweeps and, failing those, lay'n'pray tie-up with only a bit of passing and positional dominance. Seriously, I think this is the BJJ world's version of "teh deadly" grappling, being backed by ludicrous claims and an obfuscation of facts, ie. that these are all wrestlers who are given subs to build onto their wrestling experience, all to sell this as better than GJJ/BJJ. Huzzah for Robson, but I don't see or hear anything new in this clip or the rhetoric as espoused by his proponents.

So, Robson has created a style of Jiu-Jitsu that is better then the old Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
Store that video away for future reference.

Wonder what Rigan thinks of this new style being espoused by his representative which is presumably better than his if it can make a two stripe white belt better than a brown belt in 2 months.
Move over LLoyd Irvin!
