insight to a living legend
21 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

rickson has managed to do exactly what he set out to do and that is to portray himself as a fighting legend, he has won countless grappling tournaments in his career and he picked his nhb career perfectly helping to promote bjj across the world just as Bruce lee did with kung fu all them years ago. rickson has done just as much for the gracie name as royce did, but by taking far less risks. is rickson the best fighter on the planet? of course he isn't but he never lost so hell always have that mystique just as Bruce lee has.

The japan open 2 that rickson fights in isn't the toughest tourny in the world but it was still no rules unlike mma is today. i think this film gives a good insight into the mind of a master of a martial art who is willing to put his families reputation on the line . i enjoyed seeing rickson personality's rather then the fighting and i believe that is what most fans of mma will want to see, a little of rickson personality sorry for any bad grammar, i left school early
