The Gracies and Jiu Jitsu were well known in Brazil through most of the 20th century.

As you stare at your dusty gi hanging in the corner, you can feel jiu jitsu fading ever so slowly away in your mind. Fearing regression, you put it on and tie your belt.

It has been three weeks now since the Corona virus shut down gyms around the world. Without jiu jitsu we are all slowly succumbing to the cold embrace of insanity. Structure and format are things of the past. In this new world, aimless banter about jiu jitsu, disney characters, and tasteful nudity reign supreme. Lower your standards and get ready f…

Speed can be a devastatingly effective tool, but it can also be used as a crutch to mask poor technique. Kroyler talks about the different types of speed and how…
 
This episode marks one year of the Just Jiu Jitsu podcast. In honor of our special episode we change up the format. Instead of focusing on a particular topic, our conversation is all over the board. We reflect on the past year, look forward to the future, role-play, and take a quiz. If you prefer our usual format, fear not, it will return next week…
 
If last week’s episode was a super hero, it would be Spiderman. That means this week’s episode is Captain America: strong, composed, understated, and great for passing guard. Wait, has Marvel ever confirmed that Captain America is good at passing guard? Moving on, this week we talk about the less flashy, but equally effective Pressure Pass. This st…
 
We’ve walked through Kroyler’s first two stages of passing: good control/nullification of the opponent’s hips and creating an opening in their guard. This episode is on stage three: passing the opponent’s guard. We talk specifically about movement passing. This is a subcategory of passing that emphasizes finesse, agility and craftiness.
