Hybrid Success Challenge: My Next Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Project

Hybrid Success Challenge: My Next Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Project

I have managed to go the past five years of my jiu-jitsu journey getting by on counter-wrestling, misdirection, and (what I like to call) creative sprawling, but I see my tricks getting old real fast.  Despite the better efforts of my truly amazing instructors and training partners, my efforts to improve my wrestling skills have been marginal at best.  I know that in order to even maintain level of being “passable” as I continue to rise up the ranks in BJJ, I have to evolve.

That is why I’ve decided to put myself on a 30 day wrestling challenge.

VERBAL TAP (Episode 184) Kevin Visits LA

Last month, my wife and podcast co-host conspired to put together an awesome birthday gift.  As one of my birthday gifts, my wife surprised me by arranging a trip for Kevin to make his way out to LA for a few days and train.

Anybody who listens to the podcast knows that Kev and I usually get to see one another for short periods of time every 6 months or so.  And despite my on-air hatred for the individual, doing the podcast and working with him in person is way more fun than it is on Skype.  When we're both in the same room doing the podcast, the show has an entirely different feel.
