His son is huge but Gracie mag said he never reached over 155. How tall was he?
I think he was fairly tall... There's a bunch of wrong info on Wikipedia... They have him dying in 1981 but still fathering Kyra and giving a blackbelt to Jacare. Pretty sure none of those things happened.
can't tell if that's him third from left, but if it is, use that as reference?
i was surprised to read that he was 155 as well.
him standing next to mauricao gomes:
here is one of the pictures from the article, with him training with a young rickson:
Rolls was probably of similar stature to Igor so maybe 5'9. Mauricio is about 6', 6'1'' tops
Rolls gave Jacare, the founder of Alliance, his black belt.
Rolles (Rolls Jr) has a daughter called Kyara, perhaps that is the source of the wikipedia updater's confusion.
Romero Cavalcanti - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The third guy from the left in the first picture is Rorian.
man roger looks just like his dad
Just noticed that, damn.
I do that all the time! I'll see an old pic of my instructor and Mauricio and I'll go, "hey, when did you see Roger? Wait, this picture is black and white? And your hair isn't gray? Oooohhhh....."
Yeah, I think from left to right we have Rolker, Royce, Rorion, Helio, Relson, Rickson, and Royler. Not a group you want to see coming at you in a dark alley.
I thought the same thing about Rolls and his sons, Igor and Rolles.
rolles was small buthe fought big man jiujitsu
he was training with Carlson and combined his agressiveness and top game with the technicques and grace of Carlos' side
he was the perfect BJJ fighter
