Podcast #143 Learning BJJ Today, BJJ in Asia Pt 1, Abu Dhabi Pro

    Sun, 2008-11-16 10:56 — FightWorks

    This week we will begin a multi-part series on the show with first-hand accounts of Brazilian jiu-jitsu in Asia. Our focus will begin, of course, with Japan. A friend and training partner from San Diego recently visited Axis Jiu-Jitsu in Tokyo, which is run by Rickson Gracie black belt Taka Watanabe and gives us the low down on how BJJ is practiced in the “land of the rising sun”.

    Also in this episode we discuss training BJJ in the age of the internet. Does your instructor mind that you bring in new moves from YouTube every class? Our interviewee for this segment is Brazilian jiu-jitsu red and black belt Fabio Santos.

    We will also speak with Renato Tavares, who is gearing up a Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition series called Abu Dhabi Pro. Abu Dhabi Pro is similar to the ADCCs in that its funding comes from the United Arab Emirates but it is a competition in the gi, and is open to anyone. The first Abu Dhabi Pro qualifiers will take place in February in Florida. Official will be available here when the site is finished, but in the meantime you can use their MySpace to keep in touch.

    Don’t forget that you can contact us to get your questions answered here on The FightWorks Podcast: BJJ Radio too! Just call (877) 247-4662!
