Each week Kroyler Gracie discusses Brazilian Jiu Jitsu concepts, techniques, history and culture with co-host Andrew Desimone. This podcast aims to explore all aspects of Jiu Jitsu while increasing practitioners’ appreciation and application of the art on and off the mat.
A listener question starts a long discussion on Omoplatas.
BJJ Giants: Terere
We’ve mentioned this legend before and this week we finally devote an episode to Fernando Augusto, aka Terere!
Time to open up the listener mail bag once more!
Profile of a Disturbed Individual
This week Kroyler is forced to talk about himself. Consider this a forced unofficial autobiography.
Gi Techniques on the Street
In this episode we discuss:
How realistic are gi techniques on street clothing?
What ratio should a beginner have for time spent on basic techniques vs advanced techniques?
We discuss who would win a hypothetical grappling match between Khabib and Nate Diaz
What is Sambo?
Have you seen Vladimir Putin shirtless on a horse?
The Alexy Episode
Thanks to listener Alexy for asking questions that consume all of the conversation in this episode. We cover:
Why do you see more kimuras than americanas in jiu jitsu and MMA?
How do you attack a large joint like a hip?
Is the Suloev stretch damaging the hamstring or knee?
What is Kroyler’s opinion of Nick Diaz’s ground game?
Dudes. I just gotta say, I love your podcast. I think I discovered it on a Thursday and by Monday I was on episode 8. Since then I’ve been cruising right along and really enjoying the mix of technical deep dives and Gracie/BJJ history. I love Andrew’s humor - it’s silly and sarcastic without being loud and obnoxious. And Kroyler might have the best laugh ever- it’s deep and infectious but somehow doesn’t blow out the microphone. Solid all around. 👍🏻
I really enjoy this podcast!
Like a crackhead, you guys have me scratching my arm waiting for the next episode. I enjoy the banter between you two and think it’s perfect. Don’t change a thing. There are enough podcasts that just focus on jiu jitsu, but I enjoy the chemistry you guys have.
Good, could be better
The info they share is useful, but there is about 15 min on each side of the actual BJJ content which is really just them hanging out and joking around. Would be nice if you are going to run a series of 5 episodes on guard passing if I didn’t have to listen to five episodes with 1/3 the content you could fit into one. Hope this is constructive and taken as something to improve upon, and thanks for hearing me out.
