IT TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF LUTA LIVRE TO PASS THE FRENCH GUARD.
For years Luta Livre has gotten a bad wrap as BJJ's evil little cousin. It was forever known as the unsophisticated, leg locking, kimono-less version of jiu jitsu, which brought about an intense rivalry between grapping arts. Well times have changed a bit and and the current standard is to cross-train, not only with and without the kimono, but also within other grappling disciplines. Check out the very detailed guard break and pass that ADCC vet and Luta Livre Black Belt Nicolas Renier shows us in this video.
Nicolas Renier may speak French in this tutorial, but deep down we all speak the beautiful language of grappling.
