Your chance to ask a BJJ champion a question
I've recently gotten the chance to toss Pablo Popovitch a written interview like I did with Phrost and SamboSteve on my blog.
I was wondering if you guys had any non-technique how-to specific questions you guys might want to have answered by one of the best grapplers in the world, (ie, What was it like to go up against Renzo Gracie/Roan Carnero/Marcelo Garcia?; What is your favorite technique/combination?) and whatnot.
If I see any good, legitimate questions, I'll go ahead and stick the questions in, with your BS username/real name attached if you feel like it.
I'll accept any questions for review either here or via pm - Cheers.
Why did he decide to forgo collegiate-style wrestling after high school?
I was actually going to ask that-
I'll put it in- would you like me to add a (asked by (username/real name)) next to it on you behalf?
sweep or submission from bottom?
what's your favorite progression?
I will be accepting questions until tomorrow at noon.
This is self-indulgent and stupid, but ask him what advice he'd give to BJJ noobs in terms of keeping the right attitude and learning effectively.
How does he feel about the creation of new techniques? That is, does he prefer to ingrain and perfect tried and true existing techniques or does he spend a considerable amount of time creating new techniques? And that includes variations of techniques performed from non-orthodox positions.

That's okay, just please post up the think asap! (I liked your other interviews :P)

How does he mentally prepare before a match?
Does he prefer teach from a principle-behind-the-technique or technique-only perspective and why does he prefer his chosen method?
Might have more later. I won't be offended if you deem them unsuitable. I'll be damned if I'm going to ask a BJJ legend any easy questions if I get the opportunity.
