One of the standouts from the absolute division at the last ADCC, in 2009, Gunnar Nelson has some interesting stuff to teach in this mini-documentary. Lessons on performing the guillotine, wearing out an opponent, blitzkrieging the guard are all on the syllabus.
Perhaps the most valuable lesson Gunnar imparts, however, has to do with the mental side of the game: “The thing is to not think about anything while training Jiu-Jitsu. When I watch people, I can see there are a lot of things going on in their minds, and that gets in the way,” he remarks early on in the video. “At ADCC 2009 I was in the stands having fun when they called on me to do the absolute. It was the best Jiu-Jitsu performance of my life.”
