Thought for the day. Mindful of the fun to come tomorrow evening I wanted a refresher on how it should be done.

Check out this match between Kron Gracie and Sousa. In the end the legendary Gracie catches his opponent with text book arm bar – but for me the epic lays in the way Sousa kept Gracie at bay with his awesome guard work.

Helio Gracie maintained that the guard is like a F1 racing car. Its insanely powerful and so you need to be awesome to use it effectively, otherwise you will spin out and crash. Sousa keeps a legend at bay for 15mins by driving his guard supremely well. Then finally he spins out and Gracie taps him seconds later.

Solid hard earned technical ability of Sousa vs the natural brilliance of Gracie. One to watch…
