I’m on the road this week, and tonight, on the eve of UFC 99, I find myself in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
I’m excited about tonight’s UFC for number of reasons. First of all the card itself looks great.
Then it’s being held in mainland Europe, showing how much the sport has grown. And finally I’ll be watching the events with UFC fighter TJ Grant (who recently defeated Ryo Chonan).
It’s always fascinating to have insider access to the insights of a pro-fighter when you’re watching one of these things…
Anyway, as you’ve probably figured out by now, I’m all about sharing information. I also don’t think that anyone has the monopoly on truth – myself included!
That’s why when I see something really good created by someone else then I want to share it with you!
I recently came across something that I thought was particularly useful: a special downloadable article called “Seven Things I Wish I Knew When I Was a Blue Belt” (right click to save it to your hard drive).
This report is written by John Will – if you don’t know who he is, you should! He’s one of the most senior BJJ blackbelts around, and he’s not even from Brazil! He received his black belt from the Machados way back in 1998, making him one of the first twelve non-Brazilian BJJ black belts in the world!
And he’s not been idle! Just a few of his accomplishments include teaching thousands of people at his acclaimed seminars, producing a series of instructional books and videos, working with law enforcement and special forces, and heading the grappling program for a series of Australasian schools.
When that much mat time meets that much teaching experience good things are bound to happen. In this article John shares some of his most important BJJ insights.
I’m sure you’ll like it as much as I do
