There's no question Robson Moura's technique and talent and his unique ability to teach make him one of the greats in BJJ/sub grappling. And, thanks to our good friends at Jits Mag, we've gotten to see two very technical and, dare I say, beautiful (as Jiu Jitsu moves go) techniques from the "cross guard" position.
Before I leave you to watch this only to completely butcher it when you roll tonight, let me say one thing. This is a very sophisticated technique that demands that you have a fair amount of knowledge and open guard play. The set up, from what I'm seeing in these videos is deceptively simple. It's not at all. I'm gonna try this and see how I do with it. I'll report back. You do the same, and we'll meet in the middle ... of the mat.
