He’s a UFC, PRIDE, KOTC, and Shooto vet that’s set up shop in Texas recently as of last year. Now while the 42 year old retired from MMA competition he’s busy training the next generation as his new focus. And part of this means continuing his legacy through his 2 boys, Tyler and Lucas.

Tyler Brennan and Lucas Brennan have only been training for roughly two years, give or take.Since that time they’ve advanced quickly to win numerous titles in nogi submission grappling. The pair was also recognized in our TXMMA People’s Choice Awards for their outstanding work in 2013.

Check them out below as they share some cool techniques from a recent training session at NG MMA:
