October 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!

ADCC Results – Attack the Back – Just in case you’ve essentially being offline or under a rock for the past week or so here a round up of what happened at the ADCC’s

Who Is The Female Jiu-Jitsu GOAT? – BJJ Heroes – Any debate regarding the “Greatest Of All Time” (GOAT) tends to always be a controversial with the male debate focusing around Roger Gracie and Marcelo Garcia but what about the ladies?

BJJ Science: Research on mental and physical benefits of Jiujitsu – BJJ Motivation.com – An article exploring if there are any quantifiable physical or physiological benefits to BJJ

Chef Stage: What’s an Olympian doing in a kitchen? – Nicola Fairbrother – This is the blog of a former Olympian about her new challenge of becoming a chef. Why share it here? Well I think its important and interesting to hear what happens after elite athlete retire but also because she shares some interest parellels between quite standard task (chopping beetroot) and performing at the highest level.

What I’m listening to….
I’ve flagged this podcast before but its again mentioned again due to another fantastic female guest – MMA pionner, grappler and fighter fixer upper!


Technical Takeaway
Following an amazing ADCC performance this weeks Technical Takeaway had to be none other than Ffion Davies. This is a technique from her Power Passing Instructional that is still available to download from The Grapple Club.
