In today’s video I answer a question from a viewer who struggles with cardio in BJJ. He says that he’s training hard and doing all the stuff that you would normally do, but he can’t seem to improve his cardio on the mats.
In this video I share a story about 1 of my best friends who started Brazilian Jiu-jitsu with me back in 2003. For several years we basically ate, slept and trained together all the time. Our schedules were nearly identical. But for whatever reason his cardio never improved as fast as mine.
I share why this happened in the video. Now, disclaimer, this may not be the reason for someone else, but it’s worth checking out in case you’re having similar issues as the person asking the question in the video.
Thanks for watching. Chat with you next time.

The hook sweep (also known as the butterfly sweep and/or sumi gaeshi) is the most important sweep in your arsenal against kneeling opponents. It consists of 5 basic steps…
1, Secure your grips (typically an overhook and an underhook)
2, Tuck the foot on your overhook side under your leg on the underhook side
3, Fall sideways onto your shoulder
4, Lift with your hooking leg (which is on the underhook side), and
5, Drive off your bottom leg for more power.
Typically you’re going to end up in side control or broken scarf hold position (aka kuzure kesa gatame) but sometimes you can also go directly to mount.
