May Catch-Up

I’ll be honest I’ve not really seen the point in doing a round up whilst people have been effected by lockdown. Partly due to the lack of articles as well as my own lack of motivation to read about BJJ when I’m not able to train!

But with mats opening up around the world its about time to bring you a 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!
