Basic’s , basic’s, basic’s..!!  I say it all the time…. Refine your basic’s!

Roger Gracie is the epitome of Jiu Jistu basic’s refined to an incredible degree.   The ability to use the core basic’s of jiu jitsu on a phenomenal Bjj guy like Robert Drysdale shows just how much he’s drilled these positions.  Pass to side control, transition to back position, transition to mount, cross choke. Just insane!

As a side note, awhile ago I had put up a post called “Slow death Kenny..a painful lesson in jiu jitsu an inch at a time” where I explained how my butterfly guard was neutralized by a guy I used to train with named Kenny.  Roger passes Drysdales butterfly guard the same exact way in this video.
