insane how easily he gets the back of even the most experienced grappler...
not that i understand bjj much to begin with, but i understand gi grappling even less
i love seeing judo throws in grappling tourneys though, like with the ribeiro bros
what dont you understand mr atmosphere
just the intricacies of gi chokes and whatnot
for example, there was a collar choke in that galvao HL you posted, and i have no idea how they set stuff like that up, how somebody would defend it, etc. i'm used to more "basic" jiu jitsu that's applied in MMA
you just grip the collar and then you make certain angles so that it forces it across their neck
your free hand can do diff things to add additional pressure.
that's like saying "all an RNC is is choking somebody from behind"
it's all the intricacies of setting it up, knowing when to set it up, blah blah blah that i don't quite understand (and probably never will since i don't train). i can kinda see when an MMA fighter can slap on a brabo choke as i watch a fight and predict as to how to defend against it, but i don't know the opportune time to set up gi chokes, throws, blah blah blah
not that i don't appreciate watching gi grappling...i just don't know lots of what's going on
youtube is so fucking slow god damnit why me
