    Yeah, just semantics.

    Gurgel makes it look easy.

    Agreed. I understand they are both awsome and very expirenced and have a shit load more strategy then almost anyone but it was very boring.

    ^ agreed. Garcia didn't attempt to impose his style at any point. I'm pretty sure he did not want to use anything quick, explosive, or even aggressive against his old mentor. He just relaxed and attempted to play a super-slow-down, reactive, technical game against a much larger and more experienced opponent, and the result was what you would expect - a yawnfest ending in a gi choke/smother for the big old guy.

    "GMA member Marcelo Garcia went back to Sao Paulo for a single trainning session with his master Fabio Gurgel. The GMA cam was there and registered it all. This forth part shows the end of their first training session and you can witness Gurgel submitting Garcia in a reversed armbar. Sao Paulo, March, 17th 2008"

    The description from the fourth part of the video.

    Do not forget that rolling with your instructor is always different, they have seen you grow from day one and know your ganme even better than you do. Good sessiom between garcia and gurgel.
