Although I find sport, ibjjf, gi jiujitsu super boring, this kid has a really fun closed guard to watch. Brings a little new school flair with the lapels to an old school position.

he's impressive.

I love that style of flower sweep and hip bump to mount. I'm a big fan of sweeping styles (and takedowns) that go directly into dominant positions and not the opponent's guard.

I heard from those who had trained and competed against him that his hip strength is unreal.  I don't really know what that means but know how that feels.
