November Catch-Up Part 1

Whilst I love writing articles for my readers sometimes other people say things just a little bit better than me! Or at least are better placed to say them! So here’s my round-up of the blog, stories and articles you might have missed of the last couple of weeks or I just think you might find useful!

Black Belts for Fascists? – Tales from Deep Half – There have been a bunch of articles regarding Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil’s new president being given an “honorary” black belt in jiu-jitsu yesterday by Robson Gracie. I’m not going to deny its an opinionated piece but its one of the better put together articles out there (and its a British based blogger)

What Great Techniques Have You Simply Stopped Using for No Good Reason? – Stephan Kesting – A great little article about digging into you technique cupboard and the value of dusting off those old favourite moves that you simply stopped using

Eli the Assistance Dog  – Not so much an article but a blog worth of articles looking at the life of an assistance dog including supporting her own in BJJ

Sophie Cox – Women who Fight – Women who Fight is a resource based site regarding female combat sports and recently interviewed my very own coach the lovely Sophie Cox.

The event is being streamed live on FloGrappling but in honour of it here’s a technical tip from Daniel (fresh from his guillotine tour)
