The Miyao twins are known for the guard-centric game and their berimbolos, but at IBJJF Belo Horizonte No-Gi Open, Paulo mixed it up a bit at the end of his match and shot and scored a blast double leg takedown!
Of course the match was full of guard pulls big watch his reaction when he gets the two points from the takedown.
Miyao’s wrestling technique still needs a lot of work. The shot landed him inside his opponent’s closed guard. The Miyaos actually started training Judo before they started Jiu-Jitsu.
Lighter weight Jiu-Jitsu competitors nowadays rarely go for takedowns, so is this the start of a new era?
