    very impressive, though to me it looked like galvao was cruising and not trying as hard as he could while gui looked to be going all out but very impressive roll none the less.

    I agree. To me, it looked like galvao was exhibiting mendes abilities.

    Good find!

    LOL I noticed that too and wondered how often they need to adjust during hard rolling and scrambles where they get too close

    I remember seeing that a while back, and I have it saved on my computer. It was after Galvao did a seminar there.

    I can't get enough of watching these guys pass guard. Their movement and precision is just a thing of beauty.
