The Classic Cross Choke By Luis Heredia

The Classic Cross Choke By Luis Heredia


When you speak of purity you have to consider the source. Typically the further from the source you get the less pure something becomes. When it comes to Jiu-Jitsu you can get much closer to the source than Luis Heredia. Luis is a Rickson Gracie Black Belt! Talk about source material!

One of the original “Gracie Train” members, Heredia has been on the mat for decades. In that time he has amassed a wealth of knowledge and is ready to share it with us folks further from the source. Pure Jiu-Jitsu looks to provide insight for all grapplers but specifically older grapplers looking for an edge against their faster more athletic training partners.
