Having trained with Rigan several times, I can attest to the fact that he is a wizard at Jiu Jitsu. He was a formidable competitor in his prime, and an all around nice guy on and off the mat. Here’s a lapel sweep from the lockdown position that I’ve had success with over the years. Hope to train with him again soon. His academy page: The Academy Beverly Hills. He shares this academy with the excellent Martin Wheeler who teaches the Russian Martial Art of Systema.
