TWIBJJ #73 with Giva Santana

- Q5 contest winner!

-Caulicure - the new cauliflower ear solution!

-Lotus Club BJJ

-Why swearing when you get submitted or swept in class is the worst thing you can do.

-Why he prefers armbars over chokes (particularly in MMA)

Here's the video:

In part 2, Giva goes over a really nice half guard sequence. 

This unique half guard position has been referred to as "De la Giva" Guard:

Excellent advice from the Professor. I Iove when BJJ advice can be applied to our personal lives as well.
Great technique portion. I could spend the rest of the year drilling all that and he makes it look so easy. Stellar episode Jake!
