Awesome Listen!

Josh is super knowledgeable and provides an awesome perspective on all things jiujitsu. Give it a listen, you will not be disappointed!

So helpful!

I'm a blue belt and listened to every episode. Honestly I wasn't into it that much at first but Josh's knowledge, humor, and how he mispronounces soo many things, grows on you. Haha. I wish everyone would listen to this as Josh will help you be a better training partner and improve the way you train.

Under appreciated

This podcast is fantastic, Josh makes something as complex as BJJ and makes it much easier to understand. If you like the podcast check out his YouTube. He has videos that explain concepts in Jiujitsu better than anything else I’ve seen.
