ROY DEAN ON THE EVOLUTION OF THE GRAPPLER'S ARMLOCK. THIS IS WHAT BJJ IS ALL ABOUT.

I've experienced and witnessed many kinds of brilliance in years in BJJ.  I've seen the obvious brilliance of Marcelo Garcia almost effortlessly submitting the best of the best at Worlds.  I've experienced the brilliance of my coach taking my very best technique and turning it against me and crushing me with similar ease.

But, there's also the brilliance of amazing insight, perspective and wisdom that only the best coaches can convey through their instruction.  And, that's what I see in the piece below created by Roy Dean.  Roy and I actually go way back.  We competed against each other back in 2001.  I've always respected Roy's coaching style and work ethic as being top notch, but the short piece below is on another level.  Watch it.  It's Rickson-esque, and I mean that in the truest, most respectful way possible.

I'm sure you'll get something out of it.  As Roy says, "Discover Who You are."

Jiu Jitsu.
