    This week on The FightWorks Podcast we have an interview with Nelson Monteiro, who along with Sheik Tahnoon Bin Zayed Al Nayan founded the ADCC Submission Grappling Championship. We’ll hear about that crucial moment in our sport’s history, as well as about the interesting moments about the early days of jiu-jitsu in Copacabana, when Carlson Gracie and Carlos Gracie Senior shared the same building and taught on different nights to the earliest practiotioners of Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

    We will also have an installment of What Are You Working On, in which one of the Mighty 600,000 presents a training question to a BJJ black belt. This time around, our listener Steve, who trains with Gracie Barra in Chicago, will have his question about playing guard answered by BJJ author Kid Peligro! If you would like to submit a question for What Are You Working On, here are the easy instructions!

    Remember that our gi patch design contest is still underway!
