“I’m always reading at least three books at a time. Currently The Ethical Slut, A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again, and A New Earth. That gives you some insight into my personality.”
oH MY GOD
Interesting how what he recommends for mma looks exactly like the things that are on my blue belt requirement and do not involve playing rubber guard. Even more interesting is why anyone gives a damn about his opinion of mma seeing how he’s never had a single fight.
Just some random Eddie Bravo GIFs.
Quick note about the 2nd gif: Eddie says that is the position you want to be in for MMA, since you avoid getting hit with punches. From there, you can try to lock up a kimura (3rd gif), go for a guillotine choke, or sit back into rubber guard.
First gif: that’s is an Eddie/Todd White (2nd degree Black belt under Jean Jacques Machado) move. I like doing this with the gi. All you need to do is grab and scrunch inside one knee, drop your head onto the ground of the outside opposite hip, and flip over.
