How many people have noticed that Drysdale teaches a slightly different version of the Rubber Guard in his Nth Dimensional Jiu Jitsu instructional. I find the way he explains clearer and more concise than the way Bravo explains it but the real difference seems to be in how he approaches it, especially in setting it up. The little details he adds actually make it a lot easier for me to get into rubber guard. He also seems to approach several of the submissions differently than Bravo, although mostly just in the details. Somehow I am just finding that the stuff that perhaps didn't click when watching Bravo's instructional makes more sense the way Drysdale approaches it. I think Drysdale's version is somehow simpler and its not just the fact that he doesn't use all sorts of weird terminology. Anyhow, the fact that a top BJJ competitor like Drysdale not only uses but teaches how to use the rubber guard ought to shut up at least some of the Bravo haters. I am not the biggest fan but I think people should recognize that Bravo developed a nice little niche game plan that is worth adding to ones repertoire, especially if you plan to do MMA.
