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?

Check wikipedia to see what tournys he's won and download/pirate/buy those DVDs.

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.
