Recently I received a question on Youtube about an interview from the Joe Rogan podcast where Ben Askren commented about how BJJ gyms are doing it wrong.
Here is the snippet from the Joe Rogan Podcast with Ben Askren
BJJ Schools are Doing it Wrong: https://youtu.be/ijAMRqBZgo8
Here’s the full length interview: https://youtu.be/Ec4OKbrCl3I
During the interview he criticized Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training where very little focused was placed on deliberate training or situational rolling.
And instead Bjj classes often start with just a few slowly practiced techniques. Followed up with rolling from whatever position.
The 2nd question was about the necessity of BJJ Belts. Is our belt ranking system necessary?
In this video I answer both questions based on my experiences and touch on how I think a lot of gyms don’t practice as best as they could. Meaning, the implementation of various forms of rolling to get more experience from positions or with techniques that are being practiced.
I also go over my thoughts on Brazilian Jiujitsu belts and the motivation that comes from them.
I hope you enjoy the video!
