    Just found this vid... no shocker he makes it look easy. But I wonder though, how do you get so good at rolling that you can just toy with people the way he does. Is it from non stop drilling or understanding how to flow and how the body can move?

    i have trained with him here in san diego.

    he is always stressing for us to be on our toes. always moving. always. no stalling. move move move. and of course always finish.

    he loves judo, he was part of the teles/terere team and has their style, he loves gymnastics style movements. it is a conscious effort on his part to have a game like that.

    being a smaller guy, 135lbs, you always hear about how fast and nimble you should be, so it is really great to roll with someone who can show you what that is really like.

    he is just relentless. and im happy to be learning that style of bjj.

    You lucky bastard.

    My thing is how can you move that smooth when guys are just pressing you down, constantly attacking? Ive tried to move like that but I'm blocked out from passing the guard the way he does

    Unfortunately, yes.
    That was painful to watch.
    He has to put more work into his standup if he legitimately wants to make a run in MMA.

    yes. kinda wondering what his game was going to be. that just was not a good match up for him. great wrestler/stand up against great bjj....not a favorable match up.

    It certainly was a big problem.. he couldnt get it to the mat, so he got knocked out. Pretty clear cut.

    yeah it was the punches that stopped him from going to the ground, not amazing wrestling. pretty clear cut.

    uh.... without that amazing wrestling that stuffed everyone of Galvao's TD attempts he would have been on the ground and getting sub'd. Then his punches wouldn't have mattered... again.. pretty clear cut.
