Apologies for the adult themed title, grappler. We just couldn’t help goofing on Forrest. We think you can handle it though (that is to say, unless your 13 years old, in which case, sorry mom & dad).
You know this whole inversion trend in BJJ is out of hand when I’m busting the Berimbolo on the regular (my back thanks my black belt teammate for showing me his counter last night). But, the truth is, the new school has become more and more institutionalized as the younger, world elite level competitors set the standard for present day BJJ. Sure, there are the Kron Gracies and Roger Gracies who to compete at the highest level and apply little deep inverted guard technique in competition. But, the trend, at least for now, is toward more and more inverted guard technique. And, why not? It works.
