The Chewjitsu Podcast

Nov 14, 2022

On this episode, Chewy and Eugene discuss if BJJ is becoming more dangerous because people aren’t giving their opponents enough time to tap.

We discuss the unwritten rule in training about not ripping submissions, thoughts on whether you should aggressively finish submissions in competition, the contrast of going for submissions in Judo, and if there is any way to decrease injuries in competition.

Also check out the Q&A section which includes: advice on your first tournament, any rule changes that would increase safety in competitions, advice on how to get your friends into BJJ, would a fresh BJJ blue belt win an unarmed one-on-one fight, thoughts on white belts focusing on the Truck position and submissions from there, best takedowns for smaller Jiu-Jitsu athletes, returning to Jiu-Jitsu after a serious injury, workouts to enhance cardio for BJJ, should white belts wait until they receive two stripes to roll, is there a best body type for BJJ, thoughts on youth athletes using “dirty techniques” in competition, and best rule sets for all BJJ levels.
