Ryan Gracie had at his disposal not only courage, determination and physical strength, but also a wide range of often surprising positions.
To teach one of these moves, we recruited Prof. Carlos Russo, cousin to the late black-belt. In this lesson, Russo shows how Ryan liked catching his opponent unprepared as the opponent rested upon reaching side control.
Russo shows the trick to spinning, even from the bottom, and coming out with two submission options: Ryan's favorite -- the hand triangle, -- or the guillotine.
