    This week on The FightWorks Podcast we speak with Sandro “Batata” Santiago, a black belt under Roberto “Gordo” Correa. Among several topics, Batata talks about common mistakes that Brazilian jiu-jitsu beginners make, as well as the care one should use when selecting a place to learn BJJ. Batata has been training Brazilian jiu-jitsu seventeen years and began when a friend who knew jiu-jitsu showed him that his early kickboxing experience was not enough to truly defend himself.

    Cohost of The FightWorks Podcast Dan and I will also share a story or two about accidental bumps and bruises one gets when rolling with partners. Or in the case of my story, bumps and bruises I have recently accidentally given others.

    Gumby's Note:

    Although I've been friends and training under Batata for 8 years at the Ralph Gracie Mountain View Academy, I didn't realize that Caleb was doing the interview until after it was done.

    I'd like to take this time to personally thank Batata for everything he's done for me personally over the years. He's shown me a lot both on the mat and off the mat and he's been a tremendous part in making me the jiu jitsu player and black belt I am today.

    If you have the opportunity to visit you should definitely drop by his new academy in addtion to Batata and his partner Julio you might see me there on the mat.
