At the South American Jiu-Jitsu Championship, held last November 25 in the Southern Brazilian city of Florianópolis, Alliance black belt Fabiano Boi stood out for the performance that overcame a game Alexandre Ceconi in the heavyweight final.
“To me winning this gold medal was redemption. The highlight for me was in the second match—I pulled guard and went for the omoplata, flipping my opponent right away. It was just what I wanted, and I went for the armbar and finished—all in 30 seconds,” recalled Fabiano, who sent GRACIEMAG.com the breakdown on how to do the position.
Besides intense Jiu-Jitsu training (at Bragança Paulista with Fabio Gurgel in São Paulo City), Boi innovated with a different sort of, outdoor, workout, as he explains:
“For the South American Championship, I did a sort of workout you call slackline. I gained a lot of strength in my legs and extraordinary balance, not to mention the concentration we gain with each training session. And this exercise helps prevent injury, since it strengthens the deep-lying and stabilizing muscles,” he explained.
