The Gracie’s, Founders of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, have developed a new competition in Metamoris aimed at brining Jiu Jitsu back into the stage light of Martial Arts. The breakdown is respectful however biased the Gracie’s are about their uncle. The discussion centres around the positioning used and the ‘unorthodox’ moves Bravo has created. Royler, trained in the traditional way, was not used to the unorthodox moves by Bravo, however his younger cousins are more versed in the ‘new age’ style of Jiu Jitsu that is practiced at tenth planet.
Eddie Bravo and his bst freind Joe Rogan do thier own running commentary on the match up and give their own unique perspective on the match. Bravo clearly went in with a game plan and had studied his opponent well.
