TWENTY-FOUR SECONDS OF ROMULO BARRAL SWEEPERY.
Let's take care of a couple of a couple of items first. We realize sweepery isn't a real word. We have spell check just like you, but it sounded cool at the time. Next, I once swore I'd never succumb to the whackness that is the Run DMC logo parody. I failed, but I'm blaming it all on Romulo.
On to the good stuff. Rominho (Romulo Barral) needs no introduction. Among his many titles and championships, he's a 2X World Champion, and he's arguably in the top 5 - 10 grapplers in the world (I place him high up there with Marcelo, the Mendes brothers, Cobrinha, Roger, Braulio, Jacare, Rodlofo and Lovato Jr., Galvao and Popovitch [who did I miss here?]). He's apparently a good teacher too and has a strong young academy here in Los Angeles.
Romulo's got one of the best open guard games in the Universe and an almost unpassable guard. Check out his 24-second preview of the a new new technique from Romulo. It's a variation of a De La Riva sweep I've seen him show before. Check it.
