Andre Galvao did a seminar in the United Kingdom and rolled with everybody present in a playful way. At the end of the seminar, he commented:
“There are two types of jiu-jitsu, one with much movement, when you move around, your cardio is what works more, as right now, I feel my heart beating strong, but I don’t feel my muscles working hard. Then there is the jiu-jitsu that is using more muscles (strength) and less cardio. It is with that game that you focus more on strength and control. The ideal is to have both.
I used to compete when I was younger, as a featherweight and was moving all over.I started developing my body and using more strength but also I always moved around. The jiujitsu that I developed is about movement. For me I like dancing and I like to move in my jiujitsu.
I believe in all kinds of jiujitsu, the part of self-defense, the part nogi. These are the beauties of jiujitsu.”
About having a submission type of game:
I always try to show my submissions, I must always find a way to get there and finish the fight, regardless of the jiujitsu you use, whether it is slow, if it’s fast. Imagine playing soccer without goals, watching a match on TV for 90 minutes without goals? It would be very boring and for jiu-jitsu is the same, you have to go and submit. When training think about submissions, not the points, if you put this in your mind, improve your game.
