New Sparring Video: Ryron vs. Brown Belt

July 13, 2012

Gi Sparring, Standing Start

In the newest Gracie University narrated sparring video, Ryron has a very fun spar with Alex Stuart, one of the instructors at headquarters. This sparring session took place during Chapter 7 of the Master Cycle, so they start on their feet. After Alex attempts a takedown, Ryron ends up in the reverse half guard from where Alex gets a sweep. Ryron finds his way back on top and patiently goes for Alex's arm, and in a way that only Alex can do, he escapes Ryron's armlock attempt. Fascinated by Alex's escape, Ryron works his way back to the mount and goes for the arm again, but instead of going for the traditional finish, he uses a very sneaky modified finish that caught Alex totally off guard.
