Some people are just opportunistic idiots. And of course he would say "oh no man I respect him and wasn't really going for it!". Way to keep it friendly idiot.

From the website:
"Mike Wacker is an idolized figure in this still growing world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Mike may be a power house on the mat, but he is a kind, well mannered, stand up guy with so much to offer. He is a rare natural talent with a gift that is not often seen and is a true asset to this sport. Keep your eyes open for Mike Wacker and Black Hole Jiu Jitsu because his list of accomplishments is far from ending. "

You guys are blowing shit out of proportion.

I didn't see anything bad there.

are armbars and kneebars not fair game in a friendly roll? if so, why not heelhooks?

i'm pretty sure respect was given.

just another thing for salty fuckers to complain about.

Immediately goes for the heelhook; Rafa defends with ease; passes up probably a dozen or so chances to submit him so he can wait to heelhook him; heelhooks him; fin.

Brilliant.

...actually, this 'We're keeping it playful; i'm a brilliant jitsuka - but so humble, really.' bulllshit sounds familiar:

The funny thing about that type of bio, with the over the top praise and awkward writing, is that 95% of the time you just KNOW the person wrote it themselves.

Wacker has to be aspie or something from this and like 3 other vids ive seen


I dont know the context of this video, maybe they were doing heel hooks all seminar. for some reason, the way i read rafa's body language, i dont think they were. who knows though.

Agreed, Rafa looked annoyed by the heel hook and the "higher than friendly" pace, but took it in strides and finished with class. Phone Post
