Jiu-Jitsu black belt Gilbert Durinho was unstoppable last Friday. In the cage at WOCS 20, the Gi and No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu world champion needed just two minutes to get the takedown, take back-control and finish Vinicius Bohrer with a rear-naked choke. The performance caught our readers’ attention, and they wrote in asking for the gi-clad warrior now carving out a name for himself in MMA to teach the takedown. “I repeated that takedown so much, it comes automatically to me now. The footwork is from judo; you have to take a step and turn your hip, getting the opponent to walk with you,” he explained just after the fight. He didn’t leave it at just theory, though, demonstrating the position exclusively for GRACIEMAG.com.
Durinho will again see MMA action this coming Saturday, when he takes on Paulo Nego Trama in the Brazilian state of Bahia.
