Presented by Manto.
In this episode, I talk to Greg Nelson. Greg is one of the most famous MMA coaches in the world, working with a number of fighters from the amateur circuit all the way up to top level athletes like Sean Serk and Brock Lesnar.
Just like all truly great martial artists, Greg is an incredibly nice guy and has the ability to put someone at ease instantly. It comes across in the video just how friendly he is.
We spoke at length about a lot of things, from his martial arts background (he medalled in BJJ in the Pan Ams) to his beating a rare form of cancer twice, and what superpower he'd like to have.
Greg also showed us a nice BJJ technique - a lethal guillotine from the sprawl, and a sweep from under the sprawl. It was an absolute pleasure to meet and train with Greg. I hope you enjoy the video.
Many thanks to Fightlinker without whom The Grappling Dummy wouldn't exist.
Filmed at the Gary Baker academy, May 2010.
PS Just so it's clear - I'm not saying Greg Nelson is a dummy. It just happens to be the name of the show.
