Caio Terra awed the crowd at the roosterweight final of the 2015 Worlds No-Gi. He finished Yusuke Honma with a baratoplata to win his 8th gold medal since 2008. GRACIEMAG was able to capture the entire sequence. With the help of Caio himself, here are the details of the technique.
Caio revealed that the set up he used in the final was not his favorite: “The one I did in the semifinal [against Jorge Santistevan] was much more beautiful, but I could not get the finish, so I changed to an armbar. I taught that same technique two weeks before the championship, so when it happened during the match, I knew I could not lose it otherwise my students would say it doesn’t work,” reveals Caio.
Take a look on the video below and see how Caio performed the technique against Honma.
