Just one... For example the left hand takes the left lapel and then the right arm reaches over the head and through the left arm

ex-UFC fighter Joćo Roque :

- Old timers jiu-jitsu fighters never liked it....and always associate it as a weapon used by the unskilled fighers.......and that was a myth till recently in fact.....
I like it for MMA but it's pretty much banned in most BJJ/grappling comps so I never train it...

How long did it take for you to get your blue?

I've been told by a few people they think I'll move up by the summer but first off I don't feel ready... Secondly I don't think I've been doing Gi for long enough to deserve it and thirdly ill stand no chance in the comps at my current weight!
