How are we supposed to fight the guard of contortionist-like opponents who don’t mind playing with their bodies folded in half? Alex Barros, a teacher at Nova União Grajaú in Rio de Janeiro, has a take on it that he would like to share with you.

You can check out a walk-through in the following video.
