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.

Its Christmas and New Years resolution time! Give your loved ones the gift of Jiu Jitsu. In this episode I interview 12 year old Andrew Boucher and we are provided a glimpse into the mind of the everyday normal preteen. We discuss why he stopped training martial arts and more importantly what an elementary school yard fight really looks like and where the training you may be providing might not be hitting the target.
