Lagarto and Guard Passing Pressure

I posted this over at the Gracie Barra Seattle Facebook Page earlier. The story of Lagarto is an incredible story of challenge and perseverance - you can read about it in the August issue of GracieMag. What is so impressive here is his guard passing pressure against one of the top jiu jitsu guys in the "tour" - Rafael Lovato Jr.
This is what I think about when I think about Prof Rodrigo's point about watching competition footage. Not so much the move-for-move, but the overall feeling of the attack, the variety of direction.
