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!
Today's guest on This Week in BJJ is 10th Planet Black Belt Geo Martinez. Geo has been hitting the competitions hard in the past couple of years winning EBI 1, EBI 2 and he recently submitted all of his opponents at the ADCC trials earning him a spot to compete at the ADCC 2015 world championships.
A breakdown of the Roger Gracie vs Comprido Superfight at the 2015 American Nationals.
Then we go to an interview with Justin Dee aka Juggs who has the honor of being the 2nd person to have been awarded a black belt by the Mendes Bros. He runs a school called "Full Metal Jiu-jitsu" out of the Gold Coast of Australia:
After the interview, Juggs shows a couple cool ways to sweep and take the back from De La Riva guard.
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.
