About a week ago Master De La Riva came to Conquest (my school) to hang out with us and teach a seminar. He is not only a legend in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu ( he has his owe position), he is an amazing person. DLR is one of those guys that is aways smiling and he lights up the room when he comes in. 

 The day after the seminar my instructor Vicente Jr, who is very close with DLR, set up an extra training session for me and a few of my training partners. We rolled and talked about a few different positions. I was like a kid in a candy store. I pick up a few new tricks that has already helped my game. 

Before we stopped for the day, I asked Masted De La Riva to show me one of his favorite techniques. He decided to show a sweet DLR guard to back take / sweep option.

Let me know how you like it!!

Are you looking for a 3 in 1 open guard passing drill?

Vicente Jr and I are always working on new drills and this is one of our NEW favorites. We love the way it flows, and the idea, of working 3 different passes from the same starting position. When you approach a technique this way, it gives your mind and body a few different options, but you will always gravitate toward the one that woks the best for the situation, and your body.

Take a look and let me know what you think!
