I'm here to talk about something deeply personal for me: the De La Riva Guard. I'm not going to lie. I don't like it one bit. It's new (relatively). It's high highfalutin and fancy. It has to stopped.
To make matters worse, I have to deal with blue belts and the like constantly and repeatedly attacking me with it. They're hooking my leg. Getting inverted. They even reverse the DLR. It's so wrong. It's like leg terrorism. I'm positive both Helio and Carlos Sr. would not approve.
Perhaps I'm overreacting slightly. It's been a long week. One thing is clear. The DLR can be stopped. Here's one way to defeat the ever annoying reverse DLR. Go.
Thanks to SYR for the tip on this. Great technique from Chris Visentin, BJJ instructor at Queens MMA.
