#78 Ginastica Natural & Alvaro Romano, Xande Ribeiro, and Savant Young

    Mon, 2007-07-30 16:36 — FightWorks proudly presents the FightWorks Podcast! The top BJJ, Submission Grappling and MMA Podcast on the Net!

    Another packed and varied show for you here on The FightWorks Podcast.

    We’re going to start with an interview with Alvaro Romano. Romano is the inventor of Ginastica Natural. Very successful combat sports competitors like BJJ world champions Saulo and Xande Ribeiro swear by Ginastica Natural, and Romano is currently training 145 pound MMA fighter and grappling phenomenon Rani Yahya. We’ll get to know Alvaro and learn about the origins of Ginastica Natural. (You can check out Ginastica Natural on YouTube).

    Ginástica Natural combines the techniques of stretching, flexibility and respiration of hatha-yoga, the ground movements of jiu-jitsu, and the natural movements of the human body.

    Our second interview is with current Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt open weight division world champion Xande Ribeiro. Xande discusses his preparation for defending his title, and who he expects to encounter in competition including Marcelo Garcia, Braulio Estima, and Xande’s longtime rival Roger Gracie.

    Our final guest has work ahead of him this coming Thursday at the IFL’s 2007 Semifinals in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Savant Young is the 155 pound fighter for the Tokyo Sabres and will take on Renzo Gracie’s New York Pitbulls fighter Erik Owings. Young gives us some perspective on striving for the IFL championship, his most-hailed victory (you’ll never guess who it’s over), and the day-in day-out workings of the Tokyo Sabres.
