First you build your foundation, then you learn & try as many techniques as possible. At some point you will find yourself & the way you like to move, your "game". Then it's all about compressing & connecting. You won't need so many techniques anymore, you just need everything you do to be connected so as soon as someone ends up in your grip or position, there is no way out. You will have an answer for every reaction they make & be one step ahead until the checkmate. #LovatoStyle #LovatoJiuJitsu #RibeiroJiuJitsu #JiuJitsu #BJJ #Knowledge 📸 by @hosannarull
I'm very excited to be here in #Miami this week training at @budokonuniversity with movement master @cameronshayne! We had our first session this evening & it was amazing! I brought my Coach @greenstrengthiv to help me soak up all the knowledge as well as my Muay Thai Master @evolucaothai to begin the technical preparations for my next @bellatormma fight. It's going to be an incredible week of learning & studying the arts of movement & combat! #FightCamp #Bellator189 #TeamLovatoMMA

#TBT around 1996, I was 12/13yrs old. Here is my father & I with @1carlosmachado1 & @riganmachado after they taught a seminar at our academy in OKC. My dad was the first person to bring BJJ to Oklahoma & one of the first in the whole southwest US. We came up the ranks under the Machado brothers & I spent a lot of time with Carlos in Dallas, TX when I was a teenager hungry for lots of 🥇Great memories!!! #AmericanJiuJitsuOG #AmericasFirstFatherAndSonBJJBlackBelts #TrueMartialArtist
Teaching & Training....It's all I know. Help others get better as I do my best to continue to get better. Great #JiuJitsu class at @lovatobjjmma this morning followed up with some #MMA pad work & grappling with my father pushing me like the old days. #Thankful 🙏🏼 #LovatoJiuJitsu #RibeiroJiuJitsu #TeamLovatoMMA #Family #Bellator189 PS - I love my new @wartribegear shorts!
<Must Read & Watch!> Before the very end of last year, I didn't know who Justin Wren @thebigpygmy was. I had seen him fight before, but I wouldn't have known his name if I saw him & I definitely had no idea about the cause he has dedicated his life to. Justin contacted me at the end of 2017 to let me know he was moving to OKC to work with @water4 & that he would like to train with me & my @lovatobjjmma family. I was hesitant to take on a heavyweight MMA fighter on as a new Jiu-Jitsu student, but after I had learned more about him & the work he was doing in the Congo, I knew I had to give him a shot. Well, we all fell in love with him right away & before we knew it, Justin became family. He has made a huge impact on my life in such a short time. I'm very grateful to have him as a student & a brother, not just because of the training & fighting we get to do together, but because of how he inspires everyone around him to give & be better. I am very happy to support #Water4 & #FightForTheForgotten & I want to help spread the love. Please go to @thebigpygmy bio, follow him, & click on the link to watch a trailer for his documentary that will be released next year, it is POWERFUL!!! Also, please visit & if you want a new Bluetooth speaker, battery pack, charging cables, lantern, headlamp, etc, check out where 50% of the proceeds go directly to this fight to knockout the water crisis. Thank you!
