Bruno Malfacine Rocks the Absolute Division!
Ideas on Bruno Malfacine and having a big guy game…
One of the beautiful things about Jiu jitsu is the need to adjust strategy. It is necessary to adjust strategy based on the technique your opponent favors, their size and body type. Rolling with bigger opponents can be extremely frustrating without a meaningful strategy.
Bruno Malfacine is an expert on this. BJJ Heroes states “Bruno Malfacine is a jiu jitsu black belt under Vinicius Amaral who is widely regarded as the best rooster weight in the history of the sport with 9 world titles (IBJJF) at black belt, having surpassed the world championships gold medal record established by Omar Salum in 2000. Malfacine started his career in Game Fight/UGF‘s academy, but moved to the Alliance camp where he became one of the star figures of the team.”
According to Bernardo Fario, Bruno does these sweeps at 135 lb against heavy weight, including world champion ultra heavy weight IBJJF World Champions.
Rooster weight is 127 pounds. At such a light weight Bruno has developed a considerable arsenal in dealing with the larger opponent. The average male weight in the United States is 197 pounds. At that weight, a Jiu Jitsu practitioner is likely to see a wide variety of rolls with opponents both bigger and smaller than himself. Bruno’s big guy game has to be extremely deep because he has spent a disproportionate amount of his time training against comparatively bigger opponents.
