Master De La Riva shows a favorite sweep

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!!

Vicente Jr shows a nice triangle choke set-up

World Champion and 5X Pan Am champion Vicente Jr (VJ) is one of my best friends, business partner, and also my BJJ Professor. I started training under him as a Purple belt but, (I might as well have been a white belt) I was not very good and most of what I did know was wrong. Once I stared training under him, he started to fix my bad habits and teach me the proper way to train, learn, teach and compete. I’m very lucky to have a professor that is as good as he is, but I’m even more lucky to have him as friend and mentor.

This was a drill we did last week in our Conquest competition team training. It show the correct way to get from a closed guard to spider guard and ends with a nice triangle choke.

Leandro Lo Spider Guard Drill

Now that I’m back and have been posting weekly. I have had a lot of questions coming in. (BTW, I love questions please keep sending them)

One question I have had a lot is about showing a good Spider Guard drill. I was going to shoot a video showing some one the ones that I do. Then I remembered about a year ago my professor and training partner Vicente Jr was training with Leandro Lo and they recorded one of my favorite drills. I sent this drill to my email subscribers around a year ago so I thought I should remind them and show everyone else.

In this Spider Guard drill Leandro shows how to set up the one legged X-guard (one of my favorites) or you can use it to take the back, which is always a great idea.

After you watch please leave me a comment and share this with your friends.
