    Bj's flexibility is almost disturbing sometimes

    Bj's uses an unordothox half guard pass. Instead of underhooking he put his hand on the knee to free his trapped leg. I've noticed he does this in his fights too. Uncanny balance and flexibility too.

    that dude must be stoked
    I'd be stoked if I passed BJ's guard even if he was only going 1%

    It is amazing how relaxed he is and appears to use nearly no energy at all.

    Chris = Chris Palmquist, who's a pretty good grappler who's been training for years. I believe he's 1-1 in professional MMA too. I think BJ at 5% could handle the vast majority of people.

    For anyone who read Eddie Bravo's "Mastering the Rubber Guard" notice Chris uses "The Lockdown", does "The Whip Up", almost gets tapped but ends up getting double underhooks and uses "Old School" to eventually end up in side controll near the end there. Agreed BJ is not trying hard by any means but nice technique by Chris to go from a bad position to a good one.

    Penn is the man.

    also noticed BJ used the "spread eagle" to off set chris' "double penetration", and chris made a nice transition by using the "five point palm-exploding heart technique". truly amazing.

    I have just determined that BJ is actually rolling at 0.01% not 5%.
