    Kerry Codoley is a SAS Blue Belt from Lexington, KY. We competed against each other at The Good Fight Tournament in Spartanburg, South Carolina on 7/31/21.

    Episode 90- Robert Drysdale

    Episode 90- Robert Drysdale

    Robert Drysdale is one of the greatest Jiu-Jitsu athletes ever, and I had the amazing pleasure of speaking with him for a few minutes on not only his book Opening The Closed Guard, but also about his journey through Jiu-Jitsu, his upbringing, and got to hear some really cool stories about the early years of training under Leonardo Vieira. It was not only an honor, but a pleasure to have him on, and I cannot wait to do it again soon!

    Closed Guard Film – This film traces the journey of Japanese martial arts to Brazil, telling the stories of lesser-known characters whose contributions were instrumental in the development of what would become known as “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.”

Well done podcast

Well done podcast that tells the stories of both experienced and new BJJ players- both there interests in BJJ and their “real lives”. This a good listen for anyone interested in BJJ, but particularly pertinent to the growing southeast BJJ scene.
