Paulo Miyao and Gianni Grippo are two of the toughest brown belts in world Jiu-Jitsu. And fate would have it that their paths crossed in the featherweight division of the 2013 European Open, where they had a back-and-forth battle in 50/50 guard. In the end the scoreboard read one advantage apiece.
Watch the match and join the debate: is the 50/50 guard hindering Jiu-Jitsu, like a lot of people are saying, or is it just another stage in the art’s evolution? Watch and comment!
