its amazing to think how good Gianni is and yet see how easy Gui makes it look rolling against him. That Art of Jiu Jitsu Academy is serious, the all white theme is beautiful! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSIPPdaR9QY

He's not the best brown so how could he really best the best 141 at black belt. He will only get better though. I'm sure he will have some great match ups one day. Phone Post

gui makes many top level black belts look even worse often - in competition. not to mention rafa who does it to world champions like cobrinha, robson. theres world champion level then theres mendes bros level Phone Post

Yeah, 19 or 20, I think. Gui isn't much older, though. Both studs.

Ya, sorry, not very clear. I just meant the pass the guard like it isn't there. Both bros. passed beneil dariush's guard like it was nothing, and dariush gave kron a hell of a time.

Great passing. Phone Post

Rolled w/ both Rafa & Gui at one of their seminars. Love how they are willing to roll with everyone & start every round standing. None of the wussy knee wrestling crap.

Also dont forget to Add he's a Brown Belt under Renzo Gracie and is only like 19-20.

He has no big wins at Brown? I thought he just won a major title? Phone Post

I for sure didn't say he didn't win any major titles I said he's a step behind the top brown belts. He isn't the Miyao Brothers or Keenan and not sure how he would do against the other Kumite guys either.

Also the first tournament of the season he got silver. Second to Miyao Phone Post
