So this is just a quick post to let anyone left still reading this blog that I’m back…

A lot has gone on since my last post on here and now that I’m free of constraints I can start adding new content, and in the spirit of this revelation heres a little video to get things started.

Sorry for the layoff guys, I’ll try not to let it happen again…



Some great Judo throws for you..

Just like the title says, here is a great compilation of judo throws….Some are just painful to watch!


Cobrinha Warm Ups..

I am always on the lookout for better ways to drill and warmup.  Well in this video from Cobrinhabjj.com I think I hit the jack pot. Here are some unique drills that are a definite must-add to your jiu jitsu workouts.  I especially like how Cobrinha adds some capoeira into the routine plus the heavy drilling for the inverted guard…


Arm Bar Drills….

Here are some good Arm Bar drills to keep you sharp from instructor Juan Pablo Garcia.  I’m  all about drills and though these may seem basic to you they are the fundamental drills that you should do at least a couple of times a week for your entire Bjj career.


Keeping with the theme of Butterfly guard, heres the great Bill Cooper with a really good Butterfly guard pass.  This is just another technique that I cant wait to drill when I get my knee back to working order!!!!!


Here is some great training footage of Kamal Shalorus vs Leo Frincu  and at the same time Ronda Rousey vs Karo Parisyan.  This gives you some good insight into why these competitors are so good….


Some serious Judo Newaza……..

This is some killer footage of high-level Judo competitors from around the world showing their proficiency in ground fighting. I like when someone says to me that Judo is great for stand up but they lack ground techniques. Watch the video and you be the judge for yourself……..!



This really should be ” Judo Match up’s of the day”  because of the amount of opponents that  Koga takes out in the 1989 Judo Worlds.  You also  get to watch Mike Swain go through his opponents and meet Koga in the finals which turns out to be a classic match.  This is truly Judo at its highest level……


This is a small part of a documentary on World Judo Champion Ilias Iliadis. This showcases his mental perspective and shows how he won the 2011 World Judo Championships……



Here is the classic match between Masahiko Kimura and Helio Gracie. This was really a match between Kodakan Judo(Kimura) and Gracie Jiu Jitsu (Helio).

To me its all the same. Judo led to BJJ and BJJ compliments Judo.  This is just a great piece of  history involving two legends………
