Its IBJJF Pans Week! We talk the role of each individual member of the team and how important they are to the success of the academy whether they are a top level competitor or “hobbyist” We also discuss etiquette when visiting other academies for drop in training or open mat.


In this episode we discuss the rise of the leg lock game / submission systems as well as upcoming tournament season preparation and focus. Looking for feedback in the comments section of our Facebook page describing your current training focus and plans for the major IBJJF competition season.

In this episode I discuss where there is value in training with higher level belts and when you should focus on just choking the f*ck out of blue belts. I also discuss when and why you should seek out feedback from your instructor as well as when you should request advice from your fellow teammates.
