    Eddie Bravo rolling with Naoya Uematsu

    Now this is an interesting video.
    Only available as far as I know on the Jiu Jitsu Legends mook, only available in Japan.
    Naoya Uematsu is basically considered one of the top grapplers in Japan. He also reffed a couple of my fights.
    I haven’t got my hands on the DVD long enough to know the story, but I think Uematsu basically goes around the east west coast of the USA rolling at the various jiu jitsu schools.
    Check the video out. For want of a better word, Bravo basically owns him. Two times real quick, then just completely neutralises him before choking him out. All this with what looks like an injured or out of commission arm.
    Now that is impressive. I want Bravo to compete again! It would be really exciting.
    Uematsu almost seems like “Dude, can you stop doing that rubber guard stuff so that I can have a chance to grapple with you?”

    Notice how he repeatedly goes for the guy's sore knee.

    This is pretty remarkable. He really has developed a game that requires little athleticism (aside from extreme flexibility).

    RE: Eddie attacking the injured knee...

    If I'm getting video taped while rolling with a visitor at MY school (putting my school's credibility on the line), and that knee becomes a viable target...

    ...you bet your ass I'm going to attack whatever comes my way.

    Were it casual, untaped rolling...then I agree that it's a pretty dicked thing to do.

    I just hate it when I'm rolling with someone, and they say, "Hey bro, watch out for my <body part> and let's roll light"...

    ...and then that body part is shoved in my face repeatedly while they proceed to spaztard the **** out at 150%.

    Bottom Line: That was some highly technical, specialized rolling that worked against a fully resistant, extremely experienced and athletic grappler who has something to prove.

    Bravo.

    I went to an eddie bravoe seminar a few weeks ago. Before that i had no opinion of him either way, but after the seminar i had a very good impression of him. Although the rubber guard stuff requires a certain body type and felxibility the half guard stuff was great. Maybe it is because oi don't follow the dr4m4 so much but I don't get why everyone hates him. He was very down to earth i nthe seminar, self deprecating at times and an excellent instructor...that all works for me.

    I'm not sure if you're being facetious or not...

    ...but basically, it isn't bad to be "strong" in jits. It's bad to rely on being "strong" to achieve your goals in jits. You should be relying on solid technique.

    I always figured that calling someone "strong" was a way for more experienced but out of shape grapplers to simultaneous insult and compliment a less experienced but more athletic partner.

    i.e. "Wow, you're really strong" as opposed to "You're really good."

    One implies you might be an athletic spaz who covers crap technique with raw powah, the other implies that you're actually technically proficient.
