Today's episode of This Week in BJJ is a very special one! This marks my first interview with a BJJ red belt. Flavio has been training for almost 70 years! He shares some amazing stories of training with Helio Gracie before the first Gracie academy was even built.

At the age of 78, professor Behring still spends 9 months out of the year traveling and sharing his knowledge all over the globe.

It was truly an honor to get to know Flavio Behring. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

TWIBJJ #80 with Yuki Nakai

02 July, 2015 2 comments Leave a comment

Yuki Nakai is a guy that I've admired for a long time. Not only is he a Kosen Judo and BJJ black belt, he's a fearless warrior who went against Rickson Gracie despite being blinded in one eye from a prior fight that evening.

Nakai has gone on to start his own association called "Paraestra" and now has over 40 schools in Japan and Korea.
Among his many talented students is standout Shinya Aoki.

On my recent trip to Japan I had a chance to sit down and talk to him for a few minutes.
Here are some of our conversation points:

-Training Kosen Judo
-Switching to BJJ
-Is BJJ a Brazilian or Japanese martial art?
-Why did BJJ flourish in Brazil?
-Getting his black belt in BJJ from...
-Starting Paraestra

Also on this episode I talk briefly about the upcoming Five Grappling Super League Event.

Also the top new releases for the week are:

Favela Jiu-Jitsu - Sweeps by Fernando Terere

Basically Escaping Side Control by Adem Redzovic
