The popularity of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) has seen a steady rise over the past few years due in part to a growing audience of mixed martial arts (MMA) viewers.
While it looks like a scary and intimidating sport, especially for beginners, this form of martial arts actually takes pride in being a gentle art. The beauty of this practice is that even a smaller person can take down a much bigger person, with the help of the right strategies such as using leverage and submissions.
Pretty much anyone can start training in BJJ and there are a lot of gyms and coaches out there offering this kind of training.Use Discount code GIREVIEWS10 for 10% off all Digitsu products
Nic Gregoriades is somebody I’ve known online for a while. I even recently wrote an article for his blog over at JiuJitsu Brotherhood. Nic is a black belt under Roger Gracie and a fantastic BJJ instructor.
Kit Dale is an incredible competitor and instructor from Australia that is known popularly for his sense of humor, but now as much so for his thoughts on concepts versus drilling in BJJ.
As you can tell, Tim and I are prone to some foolishness but Tim takes his Jiu Jitsu very very seriously and not only is he a good friend of GiReviews, but a fantastic instructor.
I’m a big advocate of the idea that just because you can do something well, doesn’t mean that you can teach others to do it. I would much rather learn a technique and learn from a good instructor versus a world champion. Having an instructor that is a world champion and a truly good teacher is much more rare than you think.
With that said, I’ve always been impressed by Tim’s ability to be remain humble despite being a very good instructor and learning techniques from the best BJJ practitioners in the world.
His ability to learn these techniques and then explain them to others is excellent and when I found out he was creating a new DVD on the Leg Drag Position, I was ecstatic.
