I personally don't like Eddie Bravo, he has some okay things to say like about flexibility, but i don't like his advocacy of marijuana and his conspiracy theories and how he talks about that shit in his classes. I am pro marijuana, i am a frequent user, but seriously you don't talk about that shit in jiu jitsu class, or about your theories on the world, people are there to learn jiu jitsu, not your philosophy on world affairs.
Secondly he has a pretty big assertion that the rubber guard is the best no gi guard game to play... I play spider and de la riva guard no gi and do just fine, i have to adapt my style, sure, who doesn't when they lose those handles?
Oh that and he is gonna enter ADCC in 2009, and i wanna see him get his shit pushed in, i do beleive he caught royler with a lucky triangle, people fuck up, and props to eddie for catching him, its no small feat catching royler. But his claim that royler is a 'bread and butter' player and his style is more evolved than his, and thinks he is going to push roylers shit in again pissed me off. But to think he can roll with the ADCC guys now and still think he will pull of wins is a bit of bullshit i think, that and he will be in the same weight class as marcelo garcia.
Well thats my thoughts, he might be a nice guy, just up himself a bit for beating royler, and thinking his the masta of no gi bjj
