It was pretty much amazing. Some of the stuff about understanding the real point of positions and techniques I would of never understood had it not been a full 3 days. He didn't teach anything crazy but the repetition and the constant reminder of the why in each position drove everything home.

If you ever get a chance to train with him do it..

*just bragging*

I don't know about poignant but for me the biggest lightbulb moment was when he was showing us guard pass after guard pass. He explained why they worked and why so many people fail at them and it always boiled down to lateral movement and finding proper balance.

Basically for me the reason so many of my passes fail is I never took the time to understand the balance through out the movement. Instead I just tried to approximate the movement going through the steps like I was painting by numbers. Every seminar of his I have been to I have always heard him say you have to understand the position but it never clicked what he really meant till now.

I am doing a disservice to the idea he was sharing but trying to put into my own words.

saulo's a great instructor ,he showed jordan some stuff when he was 11 and he still puts it to use.

now if i could just find the  11/2 hr  vid from the private,that would be great.

Saulo was doing stuff in 1997 that people have just caught on to in the last few years. For a few years in the late 90's he was untouchable.

yep,and we chanted sau loooooooooooooooooooo    sau looooooooooooo when he was dn 4-0 to jordan in the

world championships  with 1 min left . as the crowd roared   (saulo and i )  saulo passes guard takes the back

and time runs out.saulo wins 7 -4  and everyone was happy.

 

i think i only paid 80.00 or a 100.00 bucks.caique set it up,could  have been when  jordan was teaching caiques kids classes. that lite a fire under some of his guys

no no ,jordan was just a kid  ,.it was saulo being a nice man a making a little kid feel good.

it was a private lesson ,they sparred and  the last min  was the count dn with saulo doing the play x play.

(while sparring)

just a side of saulo ppl might not see.he was very cool AND IT WAS A GREAT LESSON

The best part of training with Saulo is when he loudly exclaims "YES!!" when you do something right.

Saulo loves to re create the Mundial feeling. He would say " Saulo passes and the crowd chants Saulo Saulo..... It's pretty cool even though he's smashing the fuck out of you. So he just doesn't do that to little kids,you may feel like one Lol Phone Post
