    Just curious who the best people to search for footage on youtube are if you want to see Rickson's style? I understand Kron didn't do much of his training with Rickson.

    Define "Rickson style BJJ." By the way there is plenty of actual footage of Rickson.

    You mean takedown-pass-mount/back-submit?

    Closer I think to this style in the most traditional sense is Roger

    there are two seminars of Rickson in the early 90's on youtube, a lot of really basic things but really good. I picked up a few nuggets for sure.

    Shameless team promotion.

    Luiz won Senior 2 black belt light feather this past weekend. Three matches, three finishes. If I can non-phone video of them, I'll post asap.

    There is also Shane Rice who is a Rickson BB and got a nice basic game, you should watch out for his matches on youtube.

    If you want modern day examples of Rickson's game then watch footage of guys like Rafael Mendes and Cobrinha.

    Look into an empty room.
    Rickson's jiu jitsu is invisible.

    Either or. I'm really curious to see what I can learn from Rickson's invisible repetoire.

    That's the problem. It's invisible. This may make it difficult to learn through watching him...
