What determines if he is "World Class" as they kept announcing? If he is indeed "World Class" maybe a real college open would be a more appropriate challenge to test his skills vs real college wrestlers.

He is a world class Jiu Jitsu competitor, but if you have ever watched him wrestle in this he has an illegal move he uses as a leg attack defense that he never gets called on. It’s an illegal key lock (Kimura in Jiu Jitsu) that forces the guys to let go of the leg and go with it. I saw a video mash up from him competing in it last year and he did it every match and no one called him on it which I thought was weird.

Either way to your question good Jiu Jitsu competitor for sure.

I believe he is ranked top 10 in IBJJF, International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation, at his weight class. Heís also competed in Pan Am and in other international events.

As for the kimura sweep being used as single leg defense or counter offense, itís not necessarily an illegal move. In fact, you can use the same kimura (or key lock) in the standing Russian tie series. So in this application, if the trapped arm or wrist is kept in your opponents abdomen and itís used as leverage on your sweep itís perfectly legal and is very effectively used as counter offense. If you intentionally clear your opponents abdomen and force your opponents arm / wrist towards the back of his body causing torque on the shoulder (the way he did the move last year), then it would be considered illegal. Honestly itíll probably only be deemed illegal by a referee that has jiu jitsu or submission grappling knowledge. I would guess most refs would call it potentially dangerous.

Now, as for the match against the NCAA AA he actually got away with an early standing guillotine choke which the ref didnít acknowledge. He was penalized one point on the second one only because his opponentís coach / spectators brought it to the refís attention.

Heís obviously marketing his sport and his livelihood and itís working in his world. He would have little to no success against active high level DI or world class folkstyle, freestyle or greco guys. It would be very one sided. Now, in all fairness if most wrestlers would try to compete in a jiu jitsu match against him , he would obviously have a very strong advantage and there would be some guys with hyperextended limbs and waking up wondering what happened.

Have fun!

As you said the way he did it last year was illegal, which is what I said haha. The way you describe it as a defense to a single in a legal sense is ineffective which is why you do it the illegal way it’s how you make them go over and release the leg. As for the key lock out of the Russian yea similar motion but the rotation and where you want the hand going (into the chest) are different.

I have actually rolled with Robbie before a few years back in Jiu Jitsu, good guy and talented.

The kimura sweep is not ineffective at all the legal way I described it. In fact thatís why I prefer to use the term counter offense as opposed to defense. If youíve ever done it and done it correctly you would know that itís a very high percentage scoring technique while countering a head inside single. In fact, I prefer they keep the leg and get pinned in the process. As for the key lock in the Russian tie , I was simply referring to the lock technique and the offensive body position not the rotation.

Iím glad youíve had an opportunity to roll with Robbie. Youíre right he is a very talented young jiu jitsu athlete. He is certainly building a nice brand for himself. I have no problem with him taking the risks that he has and marketing his brand. In fact I can respect it.
