BJJ match of the day is from the 2012 International Master and Seniors World Championship between the great Saulo Ribeiro (black gi) vs an unknown opponent. Saulo is one of the most well-rounded competitors ever, combined equally great standup, passing and guard. he is one of the best guys to study. He is a 5x World Champion (1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002); 2x ADCC Champion (2000, 2003); 2x Pan American Champion (1998 – Weight and Absolute) and World NoGi Champion (2008).

Rickson Gracie on Joe Rogan podcast

If you are a BJJ practitioner, this is a MUST watch! Joe Rogan podcast w/ the great Rickson Gracie. So much insight by Rickson. Thanks to Joe for putting this together.I have learned so much about Jiu-Jitsu and life by listening to Rickson speak over the years. It’s like listening to Yoda to me. I implore all Savarese BJJ students to watch this. It is 3 hours so watch it a little at a time if you must.

Margarida vs Fabio Gurgel

BJJ match of the day is for all the BJJ practitioners out there who say the cross-choke is a “beginner” move. Here is Fernando “Margarida” Pontes Vs. Fabio Gurgel in a 2001 Pan Am match. For some background for you new guys out there, Gurgel in a 3x World Champion, 4x Brazilian National Champion, the co-founder of the Alliance BJJ team and the teacher of Marcelo Garcia and Demien Maia. He is known as one of the best guard passers ever and is a legend in the BJJ World. Margarida was only a blackbelt for 1 year but the year before, he won his weight class and the Absolute, defeating everyone by submission. It was actually Gurgel who gave Margarida his nickname. Fabio taught a class at Fórmula academy, in São Paulo, and when he noticed the colored mouth guard of Pontes, he joked: “Where I come from, we call that margarida (daisy)” . Margarida moved up in weight just to fight Gurgel, saying “I wanted to show that the theory defended by the Gracie family is essentially true, how Jiu-Jitsu was created for the small to overcome the big.”. It was the first time Gurgel ever tapped out in competition.
