December Catch-Up Part 2

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!

Top 10 Finishers in BJJ 2018 – BJJ Heroes – A great article looking at who were the best submission artists over the year.

No Gi Worlds Round-Up – Jiu Jitsu Magazine – It seems ages ago but since my last news post we have had the No-Gi worlds so I had to at least post a roundup!

Are You a BJJ Control Freak or a Fatalist? – Princeton BJJ – An interesting article focusing on the concept of locus of control and BJJ

What We Know About Diet and Weight Loss – New York Times – Well it wouldn’t be the edge of New Year without exploring weight loss and diet just a little bit!

Product Reviews
Ranked Soap – Eat. Train. Lift – Ranked Soap is a company that offers coloured bar soap to the Brazilian jiu-jitsu community to match their belt level. The most common adult belts in jiu-jitsu are white, blue, purple, brown and black. Ranked Soap has formulated a special soap for each level with very nice floral, vanilla, fruity or charcoal fragrances.

Technical Takeaway
With BJJ phenom BJ Penn fighting another talented grappler Ryan Hall at UFC 232 this weekend it figured to feature a technique from one of these two grapplers. I chose a clip from BJ Penn’s Basic Jiu Jitsu – its old but if gold! A training partner shared it with me during my white belt days and at least one move from it is still in my game today!
