OK, grappler. I'm going to hazard a wild guess and predict that one of you will undoubtedly watch this video and then comment that you pull this technique off in full-speed rolling on a regular basis.  Now, I'm not trying to doubt you and your skillful ways, I'm just say'n ... this is some "boutique," ultra slick jitz.

Mendes is a world champion and his style is very much geared for the dexterous, flexible athlete.  Still, this looks pretty achievable given some solid drilling and maybe a couple thousand attempts in free training.  So, go for it.  Props to Graciemag for the great technique vid.

  1. I use that same set up for a d'arce and it works pretty well, not all the time but thats just the same with every move.
