The Chewjitsu Podcast

Jan 24, 2022

On this episode of The Chewjitsu Podcast, we are joined by BJJ Black Belt Henry Akins.

Henry is a BJJ Black Belt under Rickson Gracie and the founder of "Hidden Jiu-Jitsu."

On this episode, we discuss teaching and learning Jiu-Jitsu, and how the way Jiu-Jitsu has been taught has not evolved with the sport.

We also discuss the most beneficial type of training with least risk of injury, how to make techniques automatic, the importance of starting slow, how to supplement your Jiu-Jitsu outside of class time, what it was like training in the early days with Rickson Gracie, whether the basics have been lost in the progression of Jiu-Jitsu, how to make the basics more effective, creating pressure through movement, the importance of weight distribution, and an interesting thing to focus on when breathing.
