OntheMat.com proudly presents the FightWorks Podcast! The top Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Grappling, and MMA Podcast on the Net!
On Tuesday we presented a write-up of the 2008 Asian Open of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by Steve Roberto (Purebred / Lloyd Irvin) as a part of our Tournament Review Tuesday series here on TheFightWorksPodcast.com. In this week’s episode of Brazilian jiu-jitsu radio, The FightWorks Podcast speaks with the black belt absolute division winner of the 2008 Asian Open, Mike Fowler and his teammate from Purebred / Lloyd Irvin in Guam, Stephen Roberto. I did not plan it this way but what better way to wind down the last three weeks’ emphasis on jiu-jitsu in Asia?
In our second piece in the show this week, we will hear from The FightWorks Podcast’s medical resident expert (and purple belt in BJJ!) Doctor Aaron Schneir, who is an emergency medicine doctor here in San Diego. We are going to learn about rib injuries in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, from how they happen, how long you should stop training, and other details to keep you healthy training BJJ!
Finally, we will have another of our conversations with Andrew Correa, who as served as a referee for ADCC and the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation, about awarding points in a specific scenario in jiu-jitsu competition.
