    Reflecting On My Mentor: The Late Great Oswaldo Paquetá

    Fri, 2012-08-10 01:45 — Scotty

    I first met Paquetá on my first adventure to Brazil to train Jiu Jitsu back in 1999. I already knew who he was, because my instructor Kurt Osiander had lent me tapes of his to study of the old Mundials and Brasileiros. The tapes were black-and-white with some patches of green in between the fuzz. This was long before DVD's and these tapes were often 10th generation copies, but they were the best thing in the world to watch. We all watched them at Ralph Gracie's like they were the gospel for us.
