Tim, Matt, and Frank start off the show talking about UFC 163. Tim talks about “The Gracies and the Birth of Vale Tudo” documentary he recently watched. The guys talk tradition vs. innovation in Jiu-Jitsu. Later Tim recaps the top three times Matt has made him see stars via physical violence.
The guys then call Liam Wandi the Part Time Grappler to talk about how Liam started the Part Time Grappler. The guys also talk about having the right goals and mindset in Jiu-Jitsu competition. Liam also talks about a study he did to estimate the number of BJJ practitioners in the UK.
Afterwards, the guys talk to Nate Mendelsohn, black belt under Claudio Franca. The guys talk about Nate’s experience growing up next door to the academy, transitioning from Taekwondo to Jiu-Jitsu, competition preparation and experiences, and Nate gives advice to younger Jiu-Jitsu practitioners.
