Show Notes Chapter Markers

In a sport where we are trying to rip each other’s limbs off and strangle each other unconscious, how on earth do you train this stuff? In this episode, I discuss my previous experiences with injuries, aggressive students, and how I believe we can learn and teach Jiu-Jitsu safely and effectively. I also recap my experiences at last weekend’s ADCC Vancouver Open. Enjoy the show!
