Be it for good or bad, the truth is the berimbolo works. And it is frequent for two opponents to pull to guard simultaneously to see who will berimbolo first. If you have short legs here, you are at a disadvantage. With that in mind, Leo D’avila created a variation he calls the fatbolo. Without using the de la Riva hook, the Atos Miami teacher feints a heel hook to seek his opponent's pants with the other hand and get started on the fatbolo in order to take the back.
