Rafael Lovato’s been a busy man. After recently winning the No-Gi Worlds in November, he’s now just released his first instructional video covering the Omoplata technique. His new BJJ iTunes Application, called “Rafael Lovato Jr. Omoplata,” can be downloaded on iTunes for $4.99, and is the first of a three part series.

Part one of the instructional series, which contains over 40 minutes of HD quality video instruction, and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, details some basic set ups and grips to use to achieve the Omoplata position with a couple of finishes. Parts two and three, which will be developed by Lovato soon, will go over combinations and transitions from the Omoplata.

Lovato, who is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and world champion in both gi and no gi, is proud of the instructional video and thinks the Jiu-Jitsu population will learn a lot from it and be able to master a very difficult jiu-jitsu technique over time, using his new application. “I worked very hard on this project,” Lovato says, “I’m very happy with the final product.”
