BJJ Education - Procedural vs. Declarative Knowledge THIS POST CAN BE SEE IN Issue #032 VIEW NOW >

In a previous life, I taught computer aided design and manufacturing to high school students at a career and technical education school. Career and technical education, or CTE is the new and improved way to say vocational education. Historically, vocational eduction is thought of as training for a job like welder or plumber. A lot has changed recently in the world of CTE. Today there are a multitude of careers available to CTE students, and they can take courses and vocational training in hospitality, nursing, or graphic design.

Jiu Jitsu Technique - Focusing on the Foundation THIS POST CAN BE SEE IN Issue #025 VIEW NOW >

Imagine you decided one day that you wanted to learn how to build a house, so you answered an ad in the paper that was looking for home builders, no experience needed. When you showed up on the jobsite, an architect puts you in front of a house lot, gives you some lumber and nails, and gives you a quick peek at a set of plans that you don’t know how to read. Then he turns you loose with a bunch of power tools and says he’ll see you next week.

On every Jiu Jitsu forum I've been on, once every other month (or so) a thread pops up with "how many gis do you have?" People (myself, unfortunately, included) boast about having 8, 10, and 12 gis. Twelve gis? Really? I train hours and hours a week, but let's be honest. I probably don't need more than four gis, much less 12.

BJJ - Sport vs Self Defense vs MMA THIS POST CAN BE SEE IN Issue #017 VIEW NOW >

Ever sit around after Jiu-Jitsu class and just bs with your training partners about all things BJJ? Well, so do we. Sometimes it's funny, sometimes it gets heated, and sometimes is just plain ridiculous, but it's always a lot of fun. So we thought hey... why not put some of this stuff on camera? We went into the studio with no scripts and not sure where things would lead and came out with the Half Round Throw Down. (The name refers to our half round studio set) Let us know what you think, and if you have ideas for things we should cover in future episodes let us know.
