BJJ belts and belt ceremonies are a much discussed and controversial topic, but I must say I love this quote from BJJ Heroes:
"In his usual spirits, the charismatic Master Carlson liked to surprise his students with the unexpected, and surprised Ricardo Cavalcanti was indeed when he received his black belt outside a steak house in Barra (Rio de Janeiro) after a fine meal."
Imagine that! "How about that T-bone? Here's your black belt by the way!"
In this clip, Ricardo shows a transition from stack passing the guard to taking the back and finishing with a gi choke. Whether this particular guard passing strategy become a staple of your BJJ diet, pinning the arm with your knee is definitely a strategy I'm going to experiment with now! Enjoy.
