    Because I love you...

    Here is Ryan Hall's lone absolute match at the IBJJF Chicago. He closed the bracket in the finals, conceding to Brasa teammate Comprido. His opponent I believe is Daniel Almiada from Nova Uniao. I didn't know this during the filming and I call him Horatio towards the end because a guy next to me was yelling for Horatio in portuguese lol.

    Check out the ridiculous back take from De La Riva at the end! Ignore my boring commentary also!

    Enjoy

    Very nice. ^_-

    One day I'll get a hang of this newfangled spinny backtaking stuff.

    It's too complicated for me. >_<

    Take care,

    Oli

    I thought the guy said that upside-down guard didn't work at higher levels? :icon_chee

    And Hall has a very conveniently timed back-taking set coming out....I wonder if he's using his competition game as advertisement, or if it's coincidence! ;)

    his backtakes in the medio bracket at the Chicago Open were sick. Again, only one match, but he had the guy caught in a web and it seemed like he exploded into the backtake. It was sick.

    Good advert for his attacking the back DVD.

    But FFS, Ryan must live life upside down.

    you know what is great. show this video to a normal person they will have no idea what is happening. but show it to us and it is like a hunter nailing a 10 point buck or a singer hitting the perfect note.

    any actual video teaching that dela riva tech? It looks like he rolled for a sweep into a knee bar and then turned into a back grab. On someone less exp i think he could have taken rear mount while on the ground.

    Coincidentally, Luis Pantoja (Yamasaki BJJ DC) who is in the same area (DC/Arlington) as Ryan Hall posted a video of this back-take a few weeks ago. However he posted it as a reverse de la riva sweep. I couldn't see well enough how Ryan had his hooks to know whether he had regular de la riva or reverse, but its the same idea.

    I like this move a lot but haven't had a chance to actually nail it in live sparring.

    Here's the vid:

    The sweep Ryan did was from the regular de la riva, its a move that you see Rafael Mendes, and a lot of the other Atos guys doing. Bruno Frattazzo actually taught that exact move when I visited 50/50 in June. I've been working on the sweep Pantoja showed in the video as well, those sweeps are so fun to do lol.
