    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Looking for footage

    My apologies if this should be in another forum...

    Anyway, my coach has told me that I need to get competition footage of Ricardo De La Riva and study the hell out of it.

    I was only able to find two matches on YouTube, so I was wondering if anyone could recommend some competition compilations or anything that might have him competing. I know he has been out of the circuit for a while, so not sure how tall of an order this is going to be.

    To study his De La Riva guard in action? Or Just his overall game?

    Wikipedia only has a short write-up with some basic info... nothing like his major tourney wins though. It was the first place I looked.

    And Snowman, it is to study his overall game... not the guard itself. I was told I use my legs and hips almost exactly like De La Riva does/did so I should study him as best as I can.
