Interview: Robert Drysdale (Robert Drysdale BJJ)
- On 25/03/2013
Robert Drysdale. Enige tijd geleden hebben we al de documentaire over hem geplaatst, nu een exclusief interview. Geen copy/paste vanaf een andere website, nee, Robert Drysdale heeft de chokes even laten rusten en de tijd genomen om een aantal vragen uit Nederland te beantwoorden. Over zijn grote rivaal en ruzie met zijn vrouw…
When I watched my first class, it was only the confirmation I needed that this was something incredible and that I wanted to be good at it.
your hardest belt to achieve, regarding progress / improvement?
Of course I was happy when I got my bb. But I never saw belts as an end, but always as a mean. The end is perfection and it is unattainable.
The mistakes I made got me where I’m at today and I am very happy about where I am.
new “Robert Drysdale”.
I’ve had the privilege and honor to compete against the best in the world. I lost to some of them and beat some of them.
As far as the new generation, it is very promising. It’s difficult to mention names since there are so many young promises. But JJ has never been better. The future is promising.
to make an impression anywhere near as big as he did on the MMA world?
as far as names, I think Rener Gracie would be a fun fight.
I don’t believe in prohibition but in control. Just like any other drug, it should be controlled.
I loved Holland and Dutch culture. Ideally I would spend some more time there and get the know it’s people better. As far as the JJ, I had a great experience.
The level and amount of practitioners really impressed me. JJ in europe is growing rapidly and Holland is at the forefront of this growth.
But yes, the sport is in plain evolution. It is difficult to see what will be the next big trend. But one thing is certain, JJ is at it’s infancy.
The rules allow for many possibilities so JJ can still grow in many directions. Just think about all the different moves that we are still beginning to understand, like berimbolo for example, and the ones that will spring from these. Or all the Wrestling and Sambo moves that are legal in JJ but that are barely used at all. Like I said, the rules allow for many possibilities. It will be interesting to watch which directions the sport takes.
