2014 IBJJF Mundials: Return of the Stack Pass - Braulio Estima vs Murilo Santana, Torres vs Kamezawa, Mendes vs Holanda

Well....the berimbolo has spawned another evolution or shall we saw resurgence in the competitive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world. The crouching/stack/low pass approach to the myriad of guards that now face even the most ardent and dedicated guard passers. The stack pass offers safe haven (as much as can ever be found anyway) from spider and worm and de la riva guards. However, this combined with the ability of a high level player to invert and use their hips also means that this is a true position of attrition in which it may be an uninspiring 8-10 minutes to watch if neither players really opens up.
