OntheMat.com proudly presents the FightWorks Podcast! The top Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Grappling, and MMA Podcast on the Net!
Contrary to what your dirty mind is conjuring up with this title, this episode of our Brazilian jiu-jitsu internet radio show does not involve nudity. Just the thought of recording audio while naked with cohost Dan on the other end of the phone weirds me out. This episode is, however, unlike any you’ve ever heard.
Follow me for a moment here: a few weeks ago you’ll remember I posted here on the site saying, “Wow! Tarsis Humphries showed up last night at class here in San Diego! He’ll be here in town, so send me all your questions!”
I was pretty excited and cohost of The FightWorks Podcast Dan and I went ahead and recorded our intro and outro to the show that was going to have Tarsis on it. Well, Tarsis didn’t make it back in to train again at Fabio Santos’ academy that week, and I had no interview (he did appear later, providing content for episode 129). So there we were, stuck with a bunch of content but no feature for the show.
Luckily The FightWorks Podcast’s resident BJJ medical correspondent Doc was available and he helped us put together a show on BJJ chokes, so there was some content for that Sunday.
Now fast forward back to the present. For the first time in a real long while I just took a vacation last week. No internet, no computer, nothing.
So as I was not around to put a normal episode of our BJJ radio show together last week, I humbly offer the unedited recording that Dan and I made that was going to be used in that original episode with Tarsis. In that sense, it’s a very naked episode.
As there’s no feature interview in there it’s not what you’ve come to expect in an episode of the show here, but you will get to hear a little about what it is like when we put together a show behind the scenes.
Do not worry though, there is plenty of BJJ in this episode: Dan and I will talk more weight loss in BJJ, what training with BJJ folks from different parts of the world is like, and other grappling items of course as well.
One warning to those in our Mighty 600,000 who have been around with us for a while and have come to expect a certain degree of professionalism from us: this episode contains just a touch of cursing. Not a big deal but I do not want to catch anyone off guard.
It’s also full of goof-ups, and mistakes that would otherwise never make it to your ears. So, family, enjoy the Naked Episode of The FightWorks Podcast!
