Best JJ podcast out there
As a professional and white belt with endless knowledge in the subject of Jiu jitsu, this podcast leaves me always wanting more content from these guys... Lol In all seriousness their dynamic is great and the banter and insight into the world of the sport/martial art from the aspect of a competitor/teacher is unparalleled. Hope they continue to provide us with such great content.
Love listening to Hinger. His voice is soothing to me for some reason. Love when they talk trash and interrupt each other. Keep it up guys. Good work.
