Roberto Gordo is considered the creator of the half-guard. The BJJ black-belt under Carlos Gracie Jr. has a bevy of techniques starting from that position. Responsible for bringing up names such as three-time world champ Celsinho Venícius, former UFC title holder Rafael dos Anjos, two-time world champion Antônio Braga Neto, and more, Gordo is one of the most respected coaches worldwide. In this photoshoot he teaches, with the help of Rommel Cardozo, a sweep starting from half-guard.
