Jiu-Jitsu Self Defense Demo by Royler and Rickson

All I can say is, Japanese crowds have got to be the best in the world. The fact that -at 40 seconds in- the entire crowd notices how Royler had a failed armbar and transitioned into a triangle, then laughed and applauded it...awesome 8) How many in the American audiences could remain so respectfully quiet?

And near the end, where they are just going at it, unchoreographed.....Rickson is slick....I can't believe that stuff, so smooth and clean. Really makes me reflect on where I stand in ability.

That was a really good video James.  I like Bas commentary always.  I think if this weren't a Kaju board there would have been about 10 comments already on how masters make things look simple.
