Black belt Erberth Santos was the man of the hour at the 2015 South American championship, this weekend, in Brazil.
He won double gold in the superheavy and the open class division.
Here’s an example of why Erberth is regarded as one of the greatest talents of his generation of black belts.
Take a look at the video and see how he goes from the opponent’s half guard straight to the back.
The key is to flatten your opponent back on the ground before you cartwheel and use th hook on the leg to bring the opponent with you and establish the back control.
