Flavio Canto

-----A Brazilian Judoka with a good ground game, Flavio Canto tends to say he doesn’t differentiate between judo and Jiu-Jitsu in training. “They’re two sports with different rules,” he says. But they should be trained together as a whole, so the athlete will become well-rounded with finishes and takedowns. ---- GracieMag

A great judoka with a solid ground game is a dangerous gi player and I am a great fan of guys like Flavio Canto that are well rounded. Jiu jitsu and judo are so connected, that you in the end cannot fully master one without the other.

Check out the video below:

  1. I have to admit, the second video just shows how great it is too have an all-rounded game based on judo and BJJ. Both arts are just different rules of one martial art as Flavio Canto says in his GracieMag interview and I agree with him. Too many BJJ guys just focus on the ground game but are scared when they have to stand up.
