OntheMat.com proudly presents the FightWorks Podcast! The top BJJ, Submission Grappling and MMA Podcast on the Net!
In this episode we start off by introducing a new personality in The FightWorks Podcast Family, as sometimes I need help around the FightWorks Podcast corporate headquarters and Dan’s not available. This episode marks the debut of FakeDan.
In our third installment in the limited series we’re doing on online Brazilian jiu-jitsu forums we speak with the admin from JiuJitsuTalk.com. They haven’t been around long but pound for pound they may have the most active forum out there. Or, as our guest jokes, they may have a forum poster or two who post enough for several dozen members.
Our main feature is a conversation with Ricardo “Franjinha” Miller, the head of Paragon Jiu-Jitsu here in California. An Alliance blackbelt under Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti, Franjinha is a very successful instructor, having produced standouts like Bill “The Grill” Cooper, Jeff Glover, and Tyrone Glover. Franjinha shares his perspective on BJJ instruction, competition in one’s thirties, and how one’s approach to the sport changes over time.
