Chewy and Eugene discuss the book “Opening Closed-Guard: The Origins of Jiu-Jitsu In Brazil: The Story Behind the Film” written by Robert Drysdale.
We chat about the history of BJJ, some of the surprising things we learned, the impact of the Gracie family, the evolution of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu from Japan to Brazil, how the martial art has changed, and whether jiu-jitsu is different in the U.S.
