Episode 6

Air Date: July 24, 2019

On episode 6, we talked about the good old penny-pinching travel days when we would try to get to tournaments by the cheapest and most uncomfortable means possible. Arm-rest battles on airplanes. We talked about scam artists and the most recent scam artist story which claimed adcc competitor @pichaelmerez as a victim. We briefly touched on the gi vs nogi debate and whether it’s optimal to specialize in one or the other, or to do both. We took a moment to remind everyone what a badass JT Torres is as he is preparing to face off against one of the most savage competitors on the planet, Vagnar Rocha. Lastly, we talked about the implosion of nogi jiu-jitsu and whether it is devolving into a game of wrestling with leg locks. Oh, and we talked about the failure of Mantis Guard. Big thanks to our sponsors @marianasopen, @worldseriesofjiujitsu, and Line Tax Services.
