ust telling you yesterday how beneficial it is to observe black belts and other advanced grapplers simply rolling in practice. Even more than competition grappling, a one-on-one roll between two teammates or colleagues in BJJ reveals a lot about a grappler's game and technique. Actively observing these roll sessions is great education for all of us (regardless of our respective levels). So, do it. You'll learn something - we guarantee it.
And, on that subject, check out a cool roll between 2010 No-Gi Worlds champ, Pablo Popovitch, and his student (brown belt) Shawn Eager. Most of us don't train with Popovitch, but by watching him roll, we get to be a fly on the wall in his academy and we glean some good stuff from that. It's a perfect moment for you to get some learn on.
