In Episode 22 we introduce our show’s new co-host Alex Coleman.  Alex has been on the podcast multiple times, and I highly recommend that you check our episodes 7 and 15 and hear her background and numerous accomplishments.  In this episode Alex turns the tables, grabs the mics, and interviews me! We discuss the idea behind the website / podcast, where the concept originated, and the meaning behind the Work Play Obsession logo design. It is our first step towards expanding the scope of the show and producing more content for our listeners.

Hope you enjoy.

In this episode I travel to Abmar Barbosa’s academy in Vienna, Virginia for a Women’s Only Competition Sparring Session. I was fortunate to sit down with multiple participants to discuss the art of Jiu Jitsu from the woman’s perspective. We talk competition, reasons to start training, and the ways and reasons why female can still excel in a male dominated sport.

In this episode I discuss my visit to 2nd Gear Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Laurel MD. (I loved it) I talk about my impressions of the gym while comparing typical “globo” American academies to academies outside of the U.S. Finally, I discuss my “eye” as a photographer and some of the things you should focus on when filming or photographing training.
