Jamie Kilstein is a BJJ brown belt and Joe Rogan approved professional comic who has been making a stir (and ruffling some feathers) in BJJ circles with his satirical videos on Instagram recently (follow him at @thejamiekilstein, on the JamieKilstein podcast, on Rear Naked Radio and on his Youtube channel).
We got to know each other because we’ve both been vocal about the BJJ and Coronavirus crisis, so that’s what we started out talking about. But Jamie also credits BJJ for having saved his life so this became a very interesting conversation very quickly.
Here are some of the highlights of the episode…
