www.getBJJsponsorship.com – Upgrade your passion from a pastime to a profession. || Where does your style of jiu-jitsu come from? In this video Eduardo ‘Teta’ Rios gives his perspective on how and why people become the grapplers they do.
If anyone would know, it’s this 3rd degree black belt. The Rio-native, who now lives and teaches the arte suave in Norway, is a direct student of the legendary Ricardo Liborio. Rios was formerly the head jiu-jitsu (gi) coach at the world-famous Brazilian Top Team, and is a competitor from the same generation as such greats like Terere.
Rios tells a little about how watching the training at the Carlson Gracie academy as a youngster helped shape his jiu-jitsu, and stops rolling to give us a nice lesson in controlling an opponent from the increasingly common “guard vs guard” position that is brought about by fighting with styles such as the 50-50 guard and berimbolo technique.
Filmed entirely at Gordo Jiu-Jitsu / Evolve MMA in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro.
