    Whenever I'm lost, either for fundamentals or just general life advice, I turn to the Mario Sperry Vale Tudo tapes.

    There is a difference between old school and fundamentals. IMO, if you arent learning modern leg log entanglements and their defense, and modern guards and their defense, you arent learning fundamentals because they are bred and woven into modern grappling styles. If I am watching a guy and I want to see fundamentals that absolutely work against all modern styles, Yuri Simoes and Gordon Ryan are very good at the basics, excel at what they do best, can defend against all styles of attack extremely well, and can score from any position.

    i agree people nut hug roger saying "see he wins with the very basics" if it were that simple to win by doing the things you learn in your first 6 months then we wouldnt have all this new innovation ect. its better tiny ways of doing it like basic stack pass has went through so many invitations since 2006

    People who think Roger uses your traditional basics from a class for white belts are simply clueless.

    Roger is super anti old school in a lot of the stuff in the moves. When showing moves very often he explains how he was taught to do something in a traditional way and then he figured out how to do it in the opposite manner because the old way didn't work well or at all.

    On a complete serious no sarcasm note. It’ll really help you to stop talking about your reasons you think you lost.. just say shit happened and moved on. Otherwise it makes it a bigger deal than it is
