Desire, strength and a whole lot of pressure—those are the main attributes of Jiu-Jitsu black belt Rousimar “Toquinho”, otherwise known as “Paul Harris”. The former cowboy with a penchant for leglocks, be them heelhooks or kneebars, rarely lets his prey escape the crippling holds.

As was brought up in GRACIEMAG issue 138, where a number of ADCC 2011 competitors put the BTT star under the microscope, his success in wielding the move comes down to force and positioning. Endowed with a T-shaped plate of pectoral muscles, Toquinho fits the enemy foot under his torso, his legs helping to adjust the position, while his torsion technique takes care of the rest.


On the coming 5th of May, Rousimar Toquinho will be taking on Alan Belcher at the UFC on Fox 3 event in New Jersey, USA. Toquinho has been training hard at BTT headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, and he’s already about at weight for the fight. As his coach Murilo Bustamante always says, the time to “let the beast off the chain” is nigh. was at the foot-finish master’s training camp, where he demonstrated exclusively for readers a double-leg takedown with a leglock follow-up—his specialty. Watch, learn and respond: Will the hold rear its head again come May 5? What do you think, gentle reader?
