LO AND BEHOLD, HE JUST SHUT DOWN YOUR DE LA RIVA.


"But, that's so cliché and cheesy, DSTRYR," you say, grappler.  To which we respond, "Get your own relatively popular Jiu Jitsu website if you think you can do better."  [Actually, please don't do that.]

If you are not already a Leandro Lo (multi-world champion) fan/supporter, then you're behind the curve.  You need to pay better attention.  Lo is, without any doubt, the "sh^t." Unless you're Rickson Gracie or something, he's everything most of us want to and should be in in a grappler.  Leandro is a gifted athlete with an amazingly fluid guard and world class passing skills.

Check out this killer little video created by BJJ Scout (a pretty cool blog, we should say), breaking down Leandro's impeccable anti-De La Riva guard game.  This is great stuff - it illustrates really well the techniques that top level guys are adapting and developing and employing in big time competition.   Good job, Scout!
