Made this episode as much for me as for the listener. Sometimes I get anxious when out of breath and rolling. I've even tapped out from it. I know I'm not alone. Neither are you if this has happened. The key is don't quit and keep showing up.


  • Breathe
  • Frame
  • Survive

    It's ok not to be the best grappler in your belt color peer group. Why? Because there are levels within levels in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).

    I missed a whole week of learning and rolling due to work recently. Hey, life happens.


    So, in this short episode I share how it's important for us to stay active when out of Jiu Jitsu so we can be a bit more prepared when we return.


    - Breathe

    - Frame

    Sharing some feedback I gave on the r/bjj sub on @Reddit where someone asked about the difference between wrestling and submission grappling. Below is my summary and in this episode is a little history about how freestyle wrestling was integrated into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)


  • Wrestling: takedowns, throws and control to pin your opponent
  • Submission Grappling (No Gi): Wrestling + joint locks and chokes to submit your opponent

    "Kenneth T." shares his feedback from the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) group on LinkedIn.


    Kenneth's feedback states BJJ White Belts should focus on fundamentals, not the "new squid/platypus guard sweep". I agree Kenneth!


    Fundamentals go a long way. I've been swept and submitted by some of the old standards over 4 years way more than I have been by the latest hotness from BJJ in YouTube videos.


    Thank you all for li...

    Sharing two key concepts of what a BJJ Blue Belt is:

  • Must be able to escape side control from a White Belt (per John Danaher)
  • Should be able to control a bigger, stronger and untrained person (many people)
  • Plus my $.02!

    Jiu Jitsu will call your bluff.

    •••••

  • There’s no hiding from reality on the mats
  • There’s no hiding whether you’re brave or scared on the mats
  • There is showing up
  • Trying your hardest
  • Slapping, bumping and rolling

    BREATHE. FRAME. SURVIVE.

    We all got smashed as white belts. Heck I still get smashed as a blue belt regularly. I think it’s goodwill and uplifting though if you’re a blue belt or above to give the white belt to win every now and then. Are their arm bars a little slow and sloppy sometimes? Sure they are. But how do they feel if you’re rolling and you loosen up a little bit and they do the technique they learn and boom you tap to an arm bar.


    They will realize...

    Practicing double and single leg take downs and throws hits the cardio and muscular endurance different than sitting down and starting around on your butt.

    This week I'm passing on feedback from a BJJ player in Athens, Greece and giving my $.02 to a question from a listener in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

  • Remember the importance of weightlifting to prevent injury and supplement BJJ
  • How do you not get upset all the time when you suck at first...but everyone sucks at first?

    If you're getting crushed you can't breathe. So, make frames between you and your BJJ partner/opponent.

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County.

As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
