Who are the greatest and winningest competitors in the Jiu-Jitsu World Championship’s 15-year history? What have they got to teach you, you who seek minor improvements with every training session? What is it that they did differently? These are some of the questions GRACIEMAG endeavored to answer this month, always with bolstering readers’ knowledge base as our mission.
In the cover story, Roger Gracie is first in the line of the 15 best. Check out the article, put together in an interesting format, and see what you have to learn.
If the aim is to enrich readers’ knowledge, this issue of GRACIEMAG is indeed exceptional. Our special envoy headed for Jordan to dig up the facts surrounding Jiu-Jitsu’s territorial gains, using gentleness and might, in one of the most intriguing countries on the planet.
And, for you who still has worlds to learn, we offer up 30 lessons that brought three teachers from three different schools to rework their minds and games. The lessons come in the form of training methods, dietary tips, and moves for you to practice and build a solid foundation in Jiu-Jitsu. Read, discuss with masters and teammates, and “learn” to learn more at the academy.
The issue’s chock full of wholesome goodies, as you can very well tell. We also drummed up a list of 30 matches to watch to spruce up a number of facets of your game. Have you seen all 30 of these epic encounters? We doubt it.
