This video's been floating around for a while. I have to admit, I was really impressed with Askren, and happy to see him training with Marcelinho, the first time I watched it.

Rewatching it, though, makes me think about how far Askren is from really being in the position of being a top grappler in the world. He's a young guy and has a long way to go, but that seems to me to be exactly the point: he has a long way to go.

Marcelinho's guillotines are the bomb, though. I've been working on them for the last few months and I continue to learn things every time I watch him. He's just unbelievable.
