The lesson Ryan learned from Rickson in Japan

One time, in Japan, the fighter Ryan Gracie learned from his cousin Rickson a trick that he never stopped using. Rickson explained to Ryan, whom he always loved, the benefits of protecting the knee and competing with more movement and protection. 

The explanation that Ryan heard during the training session in the immediate lead-up to a Pride FC event, and never forgot, is the same that Rickson shared in this lesson, seen below.
