Eduardo Telles is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Fabio Gurgel and one of the most creative grapplers in the World. Famed for being a fan of the “Esquijitsu” (a nickname applied to his game which translates to: weird Jiu Jitsu) he created several attacks from the turtle position, a position that was deemed a weaker position by most grapplers before Telles created the turtle guard, revolutionizing what once was defensive ‘go-to’ move. Eduardo Telles also created several trademark setups from a position that became famous as the Octupus Guard.

This weekend was BUSY ! Friday I was backstage at the Bellator 165 weigh-ins and interviewed Royce Gracie. Saturday I attended a Royce Seminar at Serao Jiu Jitsu Academy in Mountain View, CA. Saturday night was the Bellator 165 fight event at the SAP Center and Sunday was a seminar with Grand Master Francisco Mansor. He is a true pioneer and legend in Jiu Jitsu. This entire weekend has been amazing. I have learned so much. Sunday night I spent about 3 hours recording content and another few hours editing. I hope that everyone has a safe and happy thanksgiving break and to everyone else around the world -- I hope that you and your families are all healthy, happy and safe. Thanks for checking out my show. Please consider sharing and subscribing as it helps me out tremendously!  Much love as always - Clint
