So proud of @richthefranchisebjj . Rich came to me because he felt like he had a hole in his game, and he knew that I love leg locks. I gave one seminar at his gym a couple months ago, and already he's managed a leg lock victory in competition.

I wish I could take credit for this victory, but even the best teacher in the world could only show so much in one seminar. The truth of the matter is it takes a special athlete to be able to digest brand new information, hone those skills in their own time, and have the bravado to use those new skills in a competition.

If you're in the Stockton California area, or ever passing through, make sure you stop in to Rich's gym. Definitely one of the best gyms I've been to, with an awesome atmosphere, and great students. Congrats on your win, @richthefranchisebjj !

The 2022 ADCC Takeover, The Events And Plans Of No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu's Foremost Institution

Look, I'm not saying this year's ADCC is going to be the best in history... but this year's ADCC is going to be the best in history! 💪

Great article (as usual) by BJJ Heroes .

For years the ADCC has been one of the most valued brands on the jiu-jitsu scene. Although with immense potential, the promotion suffered in the past from poor planning and management inconsistencies that allowed other, better-organized companies like the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation...

I started teaching some of the advanced no-gi classes at @renzogracieLA about a month ago. As a teacher you never quite know how things are going to work out for you when you go to a new gym; will the students resonate with your teaching style, or will they even accept you as a person? The answers might not present themselves readily until you’ve spent time at the facility in question. For this reason I was holding off on making any social media posts for advertisement, because when you’re an instructor, your identity is your brand, and I wouldn’t be able to put my stamp of approval on a place that had severe issues of some sort.

Luckily, after only a month, it’s become very apparent that the students and the staff at RGLA are all great people that have made me feel very comfortable and confident that I’m teaching at a place where everyone is genuinely eager to learn. I feel very fortunate to now be a part of 2 separate gyms that both have me looking forward to my upcoming work days. For any of my students that take private lessons from me, or are at a different gym that I teach at; so far I haven’t had to cut ANY of my other hours, so essentially I just added a lot more people into my circle, without having to kick anyone out, which is always ideal. I’m really impressed with RGLA so far, and I can’t wait to see just how far we can push the technical envelope moving forward.

Had a great time commentating the @submissiononlyseries 4 event today with my long lost brother @kevinwbjj ! Kevin and I used to train back when we were blue belts (over 10 years ago 🤯), so it was extra cool to get to work with him all these years later.

It's awesome to see how #submissiononlyseries improves with each event thanks to the ones behind the scenes: @666jiujits , @plaster10p , and @ashleemma , just to name a few.

As for the matches; wow, so damned exciting! Great competitors, and more subs than an Italian deli. I can't spoil what happened in the 185 pro division because that will be released soon on SOS's YouTube channel (make sure you're subscribed), but there were some absolute killers in the other divisions, such as @danielsathlerbjj ( @atosjiujitsuhq ) and @ronald_28 . Can't wait for the next event!

Kit Dale is one of the best training partners I've ever had. I haven't seen this takedown instructional yet, but I've probably learned more from training with Kit for a few months (especially in regards to takedowns) than I have with anyone else for many, many years.

This is my 15th year of training, and I'm shocked to say that in all that time, I've never met anyone that thinks about grappling even remotely close to the way Kit does. Having that extreme, outside the box perspective to draw from is a simply invaluable tool, and one I think you'll find accelerates your learning/understanding greater than practically anything else currently available.

One month ago on January 14th I was promoted to black belt by my coach and friend @picturemylife03 . This was the start of my 15th year of training, and it was only fitting that Brent Burniston was the one to finally promote me, as he was also responsible for helping me out when I was a white belt, which ultimately prevented me from quitting the sport early on.

Was great to have @liberation_mentor and @jeremytromero , to sign off on my black belt, as well as the other coaches and training partners there. I want to send a huge thank you to everyone that's trained with me, in addition to all my students over the years, and all that have helped me achieve my goals in BJJ, including 2 coaches in the past that both played huge roles in my journey, @shawnwilliamsbjj , and @cobrinhacharles . Also thanks to the crew at @flograppling for believing in me and supporting me through the years, it's been wild.

Chinese ITF Taekwondo black belt Zhang Long had some epic matches against Chinese martial arts scam artists from 2018 to 2019. Let's see what they did and what lessons we can learn. Joining us is John Evans from BJJBreakdown. #jiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsu #johnevans #bullshido #China #kickboxing Also, if anyone knows the Alliance Jiu Jitsu contact that we discovered later in the video, please let them know that we appreciate what they're doing!
Any plans to re-introduce breakdown vids on your YouTube channel? They were great.
Anywhere I can find this technique?
Last week's #wwebjj was incredible. We just wanted to say thanks and create a thread where you can catch all of the videos that were made. Let us know which one was your favorite! Kevin and I want to thank: Bubba McDaniel, Jimmy Quinlan, Karl Penn from Jiu-Jidiots, Timmy Gohn, John Evans from BJJBreakdown, Brandon Mccaghren, Vince Cachero, Christos Giagos, Terrion Flash Ware, Doug Miller, Octavio Villanueva, Bonnie Marie Staley, Andrey Gorbachenko, Kyle Buena for making our premiere week so awesome. Can't wait to see what you all have in store for next time!

Great to see you on Joey Diaz. I would love to see a Kron Gracie vs Gary Tonin ADCC 2013 breakdown, that was a really nice match.
AROUND THE MAT video clip: BJJBreakdown's John Evans recounts one of his favorite matches from this year's #IBJJF #Worlds: Edwin Najmi's amazing flying triangle. Check out the clip here, or head over to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gzSV-fAcUg to watch the entire show!
One of our other good friends and coaches currently on hiatus overseas, Tan Xing Hua aka Kid BJJ recently competed in both the "Baddest Blue" and Pan-Ams, with one of his matches getting covered by BJJBreakdown! Check it out :)
Hey John, good talking to you at Pan Ams...I got confused about this interview to Andrew Wooten, for some reason I thought it had been you doing the interview...you know, you watch so much stuff at the end your head spins around with so much information! Anyways...here is my website, with my e-mail for whatever you need...see you soon! http://bjjraw.blogspot.com/
Question, do you have any of Leandro Lo's matches from worlds 2013? I saw your breakdown of one of his early matches, but I am wondering specifically about the Lucas Lepri match, and also the Michael Langhi match. Would really appreciate it if I could get them from you if you do!
watched a couple already, really enjoy these! you do a great job of explaining the little intricacies I don't pick up on, when there's so much going on.
