    Looks pretty good. I love the way he wins with the basics.

    Agreed. Though he is obviously a competitor, I suspect he knows the original self-defense game as well. His dad was a Blackbelt under Rolls Gracie from what I remember, and he obviously studied with Carlos Jr. as well.

    I simply like the fact that he wins with blue belt BJJ and doesn't see the need for any of the fancy crap that people are doing these days.

    Hopefully the whole thing will be out for free before too long.

    Yeah, I am a big fan of using basics. I believe he won one entire tournament submitting everyone with a bent arm lock. (Americana)
