The True Spirit of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu . . . Demonstrated by Red Pandas?!

If you bring up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or “submission wrestling” at the water cooler, your listeners are going to have many different (and many false) impressions of what you’re talking about.

Making Sharp Techniques Sharper: 12/5 Tournament Results

Last Saturday, I coached my teammate Rubin Pushpangathan at The Good Fight’s Winter BJJ Open submissions-only tournament.

There’s no shortage of internet videos detailing the effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. There’s also no shortage of internet trolls (i.e. pranksters and agitators) who make excuses for punks who get choked out and twisted into pretzel-shapes.

Metamoris IV

If you haven’t seen Metamoris 4 yet, check out the videos here. There were some awesome exchanges throughout the entire event. UFC star Chael Sonnen looked very tough to sweep and submit, but all it takes is one mistake against someone like Andre Galvao and it’s all over. Saulo Ribeiro and Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros was one of my […]
