4th Degree black belt Vicente Junior was in town today and I jumped at the chance to learn some of his specialist moves from the de la Riva guard.

Vicente runs his own school in the US but was over here for some travelling and seminars. He taught some DLR sweeps and one very nice leg drag pass. For the beginners, it was a nice introduction to this popular guard and for old codgers like me, it was a vital opportunity to improve on technique and learn different methods of utilising DLR.

Thanks to Vicente for visiting our academy. I've got a copy of his DVD instructional actually which I am intending to review in the very near future.
